Hummus Wraps (Flatbread Rolls With Hummus/Spread & Veggies)

Some flat bread, a little hummus and a few veggies are all you need to make fabulous HummusWraps. Put them together ... and you will be happy you did!

These are delicious for lunch or snacks. I have given the basic blueprint but you can embellish the rolls anyway you like. You can make your own hummus or purchase some from a store. I love the sweet crunch of romaine lettuce but you may add other greens like watercress, arugula, etc. Other fillings such as Smoky Red Bell Pepper Hummus, White Bean Hummus, or ChickPea Salad Spread, etc may be used instead of the regular hummus.

2 - 4 Servings


2 sheets of Flat breads (Lavash or large thin Chapati/Roti, etc)
1/2 to 1 cup Hummus
a handful of Spinach and/or Romaine Lettuce leaves
1 Carrot, finely julienned
1 small Cucumber, julienned


Lay the flat bread on a cutting board and spread with hummus.

Place the spinach and romaine (I love to stuff the roll with lots of crunchy, sweet romaine) on one end and add a few pieces of the carrots and cucumber.

Roll the flat bread tightly around the veggies into a cylinder. (If not serving right away, these rolls maybe wrapped in parchment or slightly moistened paper towels and reserved in the fridge.)

Cut the roll into pieces with a sharp knife.

Serve right away or chill until ready to serve.
