Culinary Tips for the Best Hummus Wraps

When dicing the vegetables, think about the final product. Large pieces may be hard to chew, so we recommend finely diced pieces for this recipe.

Don’t worry about being exact with the veggie measurements. It’s okay to eyeball it in this recipe. However, keep in mind that the more veggies you add to the tortilla, the harder it will be to roll up!

Don’t spread the hummus all the way to the edge of the tortilla, or the hummus will squeeze out when rolled up.

To make hummus pinwheels, simply use a serrated knife to slice the tortilla into rounds (~1 inch between each slice). Be sure to roll the wrap tightly before cutting. Placing the uncut wrap in the refrigerator for 30 minutes before slicing can help the pinwheels hold together better.

Ingredient Substitutions

  • Whole Wheat Tortilla: substitute your favorite tortilla. We do not recommend corn tortillas, as these are too small to roll up. However, if you want to make a hummus quesadilla, corn tortillas work fine.
  • Hummus: use any flavor of homemade or store-bought hummus.
  • Feta Cheese: substitute Cotija cheese, goat cheese, shredded cheese, or any other crumbly variety.
  • Red Bell Pepper: substitute orange or yellow bell pepper. You can also use green bell pepper, but note that its flavor is stronger and less sweet.
  • Cucumber: use regular or English. Leave the peel on for optimal nutrition, but note that some regular cucumber peels have a hard or bitter peel. Taste before adding – especially if you have picky eaters!
  • Avocado: substitute dollops of guacamole.

Recipe Variations

Feel free to add any other veggies to your taste, but remember that the more you add, the harder it will be to roll up!

Make hummus pesto veggie wraps by spreading a tablespoon of pesto in with the hummus.

Health Benefits of Hummus Wraps

We love a quick and easy plant-forward lunch recipe. These vegetarian wraps are loaded with nutrients that promote a healthy body: whole grains, chickpeas, and lots of veggies!

Whole Wheat Tortillas

Whole grains are a good source of fiber, B vitamins, Vitamin E, trace minerals, and phytonutrients. Replacing refined grains (i.e. flour tortillas) with whole grains (i.e. whole wheat tortillas) may reduce the risk of developing chronic conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and certain types of cancer. When purchasing whole wheat tortillas, choose varieties with ingredients that you can see, recognize, and pronounce.

Chickpeas / Garbanzo Beans

Beans are one of our favorite foods because they are packed with high quality nutrients. All of the world’s longest lived populations consume beans weekly, if not daily. Beans of all varieties contain plant-based protein, complex carbohydrates, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. These nutrients promote gut health, decrease risk of developing heart disease, cancer, and diabetes, and promote a healthy weight.

Vegetables

All vegetables provide fiber, vitamins, minerals, and disease fighting phytonutrients. Aim to eat a variety of colors – each color provides a different benefit for our bodies. This Mediterranean hummus pizza is full of different colors!

Serving Suggestions

Serve hummus wraps as a healthy vegetarian lunch along with some fresh fruit to make a beautiful Whole Life Plate. Hummus pinwheels also make a great appetizer or after-school snack.

Storage Tips

Store hummus wraps in an airtight container in the refrigerator for no more than 2 days to prevent the tortilla from getting soggy. If packing a lunch and you don’t have a refrigerator available, pack an ice pack in your lunch box to keep the wrap cool.
