This vegan wrap recipe is ridiculously versatile, which is one of the reasons why I LOVE making wraps. I use eggplant, but you can use any vegetable your heart desires. The jerk spices combined with the creamy curry sauce is a perfect match!

I have a homemade jerk sauce recipe, but don’t worry….you don’t have to make a jerk marinade from scratch! You can use any brand of jerk seasoning or marinade you want. If you can’t find any in your local grocery stores, try ordering some online. Here is a popular brand:
Is Jerk Sauce Vegan Friendly?
Yes! Of course, everyone has their own special jerk sauce recipe, but many homemade recipes and store-bought brands are vegan. Some of the most common ingredients I have seen in jerk sauce are scotch bonnet peppers, fresh thyme, garlic, scallion, fresh ginger, and soy sauce (or coconut aminos for those of us who are soy intolerant).
Seasonings such as allspice, nutmeg, salt, pepper, and a little sweetener can also be added.
Are These Vegan Wraps Gluten Free?
This recipe can easily be made gluten free by using gluten free wraps. Simple, right?! The green wraps in my photos are gluten free spinach wraps made by Raw Wraps.
This wrap would be perfect with a side of plain rice or coconut rice. You could also eat it with a side of my Spicy Braised Cabbage Recipe, or just a simple salad.
How to Make this Vegan Wrap Recipe
1. Cut the Vegetable and Bake
- Preheat the oven to 375F. Cut a large eggplant, or whatever vegetable you are using, into bitesize pieces. Place the eggplant on a baking sheet and toss with olive oil and jerk marinade. Bake until tender, about 20 minutes. Remove and set aside when done.
- Meanwhile, mix all of the curry sauce ingredients in a bowl and set aside.
2. Assemble Your Wrap
- To assemble, spread some of the curry sauce on your wrap. Add your desired amount of jerk roasted vegetables and toppings (shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, diced onion, maybe even some cooked rice or quinoa).
- Wrap it the same way you wrap a burrito (or as close to is as possible. I suck at wrapping burritos!). Serve.
Eggplant has been shown to be great for heart health and lower cholesterol due to its ability to fight inflammation. It might also improve circulation and reduce plaque buildup.
