This hummus wrap is a great option for lunch or dinner — packed with protein thanks to quinoa and hummus, it will keep you full for hours.
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!
Hummus is a great go-to item — healthy, and full of chickpea protein. 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 vegetarian wrap. I like Sabra hummus classic variety but this wrap would be great with any of Sabra’s hummus varieties.
A great alternative to mayo, hummus is more filling than mayo and better for you. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not anti-mayo — gotta have it on a BLT!
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 protein. This hummus wrap 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 like spinach (I ALWAYS have spinach in the house), cucumber, and carrot. I julienne both the cucumber and the carrots using my mandoline to make it easy to bite into.
If you don’t have a mandoline, no worries, use a sharp knife to 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.

Husband’s take: He actually hasn’t tried this one.
Changes I would make: None are necessary but like I mentioned, have fun switching it up with different flavors of hummus or different vegetables in this hummus wrap.
