Wraps have been a lunch and snack-time staple for quite some time. A myriad of recipes can be found for this quick mealtime treat. However, when we sifted through the recipes on the web, we found ourselves confronted with many of the same uninspired recipes, full of unhealthy dressings and ingredients—and healthy options often took longer than we wanted to prepare! So with that in mind, we thought we’d create some delicious, quick, healthy, and unique hummus wrap ideas to boost your kitchen craftiness. Because, who doesn’t want to mix up their lunch and dinner? There are so many delicious and healthy ingredients that can be used, it’s helpful to get out of a rut and come up with some new flavors to delight the taste buds.
Wraps with Hummus: Why They’re a Great Choice
The chicken and hummus wrap, and veggie roll ups with hummus have become a popular sandwich alternative, largely due to their portability and quick preparation time. In just minutes, you can throw together a wide range of ingredients and fold them all up in a tortilla or veggie leaf. And, this can be a great alternative if you are gluten intolerant, as you don’t need bread to enjoy all the tasting fillings. The inclusion of humus as a condiment boosts both protein for prime muscle fuel, and heart-healthy fats for long-lasting meal satisfaction and a host of health benefits as well. These health benefits, as well to the wide range of flavors available, have made it a welcome challenger to the old buttermilk dressing and mustard stand-bys. Adding in some spice and unique flavor will brighten up your lunch and give you the much-needed protein boost that gets you through that afternoon lull.
Hummus Veggie Wrap, Hummus Chicken Wrap, and Avocado Hummus Wrap: The Options are Endless
When you’re wondering what to put in your favorite wraps with hummus, don’t forget about the wrapper itself. We have seen plenty of pita wraps, since our favorite dip hails from Arabic and Mediterranean tradition; but if you look at HOPE’s flavor catalogue, you can tell we are all for fresh new ideas! Try using flavored tortillas instead of their boring old corn or wheat cousins, to add another dimension to the flavor. Or, if you want to keep things light on carbs, try a veggie hummus wrap using collard green, cabbage, or lettuce shells.
