I’ve mentioned it in the past, but I’m always on the search for healthy and filling lunches. Healthy — for obvious reasons. Filling — for obvious reasons too, but mostly to avoid that 3:00 crash. Moms can’t crash at 3pm. It just doesn’t work out. Lunches that are easy to prepare are an extra bonus.

That’s why I love to keep hummus in my fridge (despite my son’s allergy).

Update — I’ve since changed my opinion on this. As much as I love hummus, it’s not worth the risk and stress of having it in the house when it could harm my son. But I do take every chance I get when I’m out to dinner without him to enjoy all the sesame and nuts!

It’s a great go-to item — healthy, and full of protein. And it is ready-to-go and versatile. It’s great as a dip for vegetables or crackers but it’s wonderful for all different uses — such as this one. Spread it on a whole wheat tortilla (or bread) as a great alternative to mayo. It’s more filling than mayo and better for you. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not anti-mayo — gotta have it on a BLT! But this wrap is perfect for hummus. I used Sabra* hummus’ classic variety — but this wrap would be great with any of Sabra’s hummus varieties.

The hummus not only adds great flavor (no matter what flavor you choose to use!) but it also acts as a “glue” for the quinoa. The quinoa adds an additional nutty flavor as well as texture and added protein. This hummus wrap still is a little messy to eat, but it is worth it.

Feel free to make this wrap your own by adding any vegetables you love or whatever you happen to have in the house. I used spinach (I ALWAYS have spinach in the house), cucumber and carrot. I julienned both the cucumber and the carrots using my mandoline to make it easy to bite into, but if you don’t have a mandoline or don’t want to work out your knife skills, feel free to just thinly slice the vegetables. Other vegetables that would be great on this wrap are radishes, tomatoes, red peppers, red onion….or really anything else you like. Some broccoli slaw would be perfect on this…it would add terrific crunch. The sky is the limit.

Verdict: Loved this slightly messy, completely delicious lunch. A quick and easy one to throw together. (Especially if you keep cooked quinoa in the freezer like I do).

Husband’s take: He actually didn’t have this one — this was a lunch for me one day.

Changes I would make: None are necessary but of course like I mentioned, it would be fun to switch it up with different flavors of hummus or different vegetables in this hummus wrap.

Difficulty: Easy.
