Wraps have been my thing lately! They’re easy, economical and travel well. And let’s not forget how versatile they are. Change up the spread using flavored hummus of your choice. Vary up the veggies, add spices and herbs to suit your taste. Layer and roll. Done and done!
I used kale, plain hummus, bell peppers, carrots, cucumber, mineral salt and red pepper flakes. All on top of lavash bread. You could easily use shredded cabbage (green or purple) in place of the kale, or any other leafy greens you prefer. I think these are a good combination of veggies here. You could try adding in some sliced avocado to the mix if you like. This just gives you an idea, you can take it from here and make it your own, or use this one…it was delicious!
Layer and roll…
Take it with you for a brown bag lunch! In this case, a blue bag since I like to recycle, reduce and reuse my paper shopping bags. It’s kind of girly, so guys you can tote around your usual uni-sex lunch bag. It fits perfectly in this little reusable plastic container, they usually come in a set of four so you could make a few and tuck them away in the refrigerator for later. I paired my wrap with some mixed nuts & dried fruits along with a fresh apple. I eat at least one apple everyday, sometimes two or three and I always carry one with me. My favorite is the sweet, juicy Fuji apples. They are convenient, fit right in my purse along with my Nalgene water bottle. Next time I share a brown bag lunch I’ll break it out for you. And if you doubt that I always carry an apple with me, I swear just look in my purse!
HUMMUS VEGGIE WRAP
- lavash bread (or large flour tortilla)
- kale or other leafy greens of choice
- red bell pepper, sliced
- yellow bell pepper, sliced
- 1- 2 carrots, sliced lengthwise or julienned
- cucumber slices
- hummus, to spread
- salt, to taste
- red pepper flakes, to taste
Lay lavash bread (or tortilla) on a flat surface, spread hummus over 2/3 – 3/4 of the wrap leaving at least an inch on both ends, layer with veggies, wrap one end up, over, and roll. Slice in half and enjoy now or store for later.
Make 2 – 3 of these wraps at a time storing them in individual containers for the next day or two as a lunch or snack. They will hold up well and actually allow the bread to soften a bit in the refrigerator.
I have my cucumbers in long slabs but you can cut them in long 1/4 – 1/2 inch strips instead.
