Lunch is probably my least favorite meal to make. My boys can be picky eaters, and we are usually busy during the middle of the day. I don’t like making something as big as dinner. And that leaves us eating the same things over and over. Especially when the boys aren’t in school.

We all enjoy my veggie pizza, but sometimes that is too filling for lunch. And it takes a bit of time to make. So I took that general recipe and turned it into veggie tortilla pinwheel roll-ups! They are bite-sized, so the boys liked that. It made them easy to eat for all of us. And they were packed with veggies yet still delicious!

Step by Step

Start by making the cream cheese spread. This is exactly like my veggie pizza, only cut down to a lower amount. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, mayonnaise, and ranch seasoning.

Spread the cream cheese mixture out on each of the tortilla shells. I used about 1-2 tbsp per shell.

Top each shell with the cut-up vegetables. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese.

Roll the tortillas up tightly. Cut into 6 even pieces. Serve the veggie tortilla pinwheel roll-ups immediately.

Leftovers

This recipe does not keep very long. At most, you could make them in the morning to send in a lunchbox. If you are doing that, you may want to consider packing them tightly so they don’t unroll or use a few toothpicks to hold them together.

But beyond that, the cream cheese mixture starts to break down the tortilla shells. These are best made and enjoyed at the same time.

    1. Hah, that’s why I came up with this one! We needed new ideas when the boys were suddenly home for lunch every day instead of eating at school.

  1. My kids favorite food is anything they can eat with their hands. This looks like such a yummy lunch for everyone.

  2. Tortilla seems to be the better version of the sandwich for me. Personally, I’m not a big fan of both, but this Pinwheel Roll-Ups tortilla seems very appetizing to me and I would like to try to do something similar.
