Americans love sandwiches — that much is true. In fact, sandwiches are so popular in the States that there have been actual scientific studies conducted to try and pin down exact statistics of how many sandwiches we as a nation consume on average per day.
Did you know that on any given day, 47 percent of all adults in America will consume at least one sandwich? Not just one — at least one.
While sandwiches are a clear mainstay in American diets, we here at One Green Planet have a serious culinary love-affair with the sandwich’s equally delicious sister: the wrap! Wraps are essentially what would happen if you dug out all of the deliciousness stuffed inside of two sandwich slices and instead wrapped them up in some sort of edible carb.
We’ve dug through our Food Monster App to present 15 of our favorite plant-based wrap recipes. Let us know what you think of them!
