Hummus Vegetable Wraps
These quick and healthy Hummus Wraps made with homemade or store-bought hummus, tons of vegetables, avocado, and a touch of balsamic vinaigrette is the perfect light lunch or dinner. Taste like your favorite sandwich shop.
How often do you find yourself staring at your fridge towards the end of the week and wondering, ‘what on earth am I going to do with all these veggies?’ If so, you’re not alone! This happens to me all the time and delicious recipes like this Hummus Vegetable Wrap tend to be my saving grace.
If you find yourself in the same boat, with lots of fresh veggies and no clue what to make, consider making a quick and easy hummus wrap like this one.
Depending on how quickly you can chop your vegetables, you can make this dish in just a few minutes. Honestly, it feels a little weird to even classify this as a ‘recipe’ because it’s so insanely easy to make and more like a blueprint.
When I make hummus wraps, I like to use a combination of fresh veggies including tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers, carrots, mixed greens, and creamy avocado. Then spread your favorite hummus (like this homemade hummus) onto a tortilla, layer on your veggies, top it off with some balsamic vinaigrette, and just like that you’ve got an amazing meal in 5 minutes or less. This also tastes amazing as a hummus bowl.
Serve these healthy veggie wraps on their own or alongside a bowl of soup, a side salad, or some fresh fruit for a dreamy lunch or light dinner.
Why You’ll Love This Hummus Wrap
- Versatile: It is so easy to switch up the flavors in this sandwich with different flavors of hummus, different vegetables, toppings, protein, and more.
- Quick and easy: If you need a five-minute meal that has protein, healthy fats, fiber, and vegetables this is it! Make a delicious, restaurant-style wrap in just 5 minutes.
- Use up produce in the fridge: When vegetables are on the verge, this recipe is a great way to use them up! This wrap works with raw vegetables and cooked vegetables. Use up wilted greens. You can even add leftover proteins, cheese, or grains.
Here is everything you need to make these tasty wraps.
- Tortilla or wrap: This serves as the base of your wrap, so make sure to choose a brand you love. Use flour tortillas, whole wheat tortillas, low-carb wraps, or any kind you like. To keep this dish gluten-free, simply opt for a gluten-free tortilla.
- Hummus: The foundation of this delicious meal, hummus makes a wonderful addition to any veggie wrap and adds plenty of protein and fiber. Choose your favorite or make your own hummus from scratch.
- Veggies: I like to fill my wraps with avocado, tomatoes, Persian cucumbers, carrots, red bell peppers, and mixed greens. Feel free to use any veggies you like. We love adding red onion, cabbage, alfalfa sprouts, beets, and roasted vegetables or grilled veggies.
- Dressing: For this wrap, I tend to go for a classic balsamic vinaigrette because I love the tangy flavor it adds. Try this out or use any kind of salad dressing you prefer. If you like a bit of a kick, you can’t go wrong with jalapeno ranch dressing. Or simply add some hot sauce or Sriracha for heat.
- Fun extras: Get creative and add some feta cheese, goat cheese, olives, fresh lemon juice, deli meat, grilled chicken, shrimp, or tofu.
Recipe Tips and Substitutions
There are so many ways to customize this vegetable hummus wrap and make it your own. It all depends on what you’re in the mood for and what you have at home.
If you’re looking for some inspiration, here are some of my favorite ways to switch up these hummus veggie wraps:
- Add some protein. Looking for more protein? Try adding some shredded chicken, sliced turkey breast, tofu, or chickpeas.
- Swap out the hummus. Plain hummus works great, but feel free to get creative here. There are tons of hummus flavors out there that would work well in this dish. Here are some favorites:
- Combine textures. The secret to creating wraps that are as good as store-bought ones is adding a variety of different textures. Here we’ve got creamy avocado, soft tomatoes, and crunchy carrots and cucumbers.
- Grill those veggies. Try switching up this dish by grilling your veggies instead of enjoying them raw. This adds a ton of flavor and makes for an equally delicious wrap!
- Use a different dressing. If you don’t like balsamic vinaigrette or want to try something out, feel free to use any vinaigrette of your choice. Alternatively, you could also opt for a creamy dressing instead like a yogurt-based ranch.
What to Serve With Hummus Vegetable Wraps
These veggie wraps work great on their own or paired with a side like soup, salad, or fresh fruit. You could even pop them into the freezer for 15-20 minutes and slice them into pinwheels for a super fun appetizer or a kid-friendly healthy lunch.
Need some help? Here are some ways that I love enjoying these wraps:
- Soup: Panera lovers, unite! Wraps and soups are a match made in heaven. This combo is absolutely perfect when you’re looking for a balanced meal of something light and refreshing with something warm and cozy.
- Salads: I love my wraps and I love my salads. So, to get the best of both worlds, why not have both? Try pairing this dish with my Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad, Easy Mediterranean Salad, or Spinach Salad with Creamy Balsamic.
- Fruits and nuts: Serve these wraps with some chopped seasonal fruits and nuts on the side to create a quick, easy, and kid-friendly lunch option.
How to Store Leftover Wraps
If you have some leftover wraps, wrap them tightly in saran wrap or foil and store them in the fridge. They will stay fresh in the fridge for up to 2-3 days. Whenever you’re ready to enjoy them, just unwrap and you’re good to go.
Looking to prep your wraps ahead of time? While I don’t recommend assembling them beforehand (nobody likes a soggy wrap), feel free to chop your veggies ahead of time. This makes assembly a breeze, with the wraps taking just a few moments to whip up.
How do I avoid getting soggy wraps?
To avoid getting soggy wraps, try tossing your mixed greens with the vinaigrette before adding them to the tortilla, rather than drizzling the dressing directly onto the tortilla.
Another easy way to avoid soggy wraps is eating it immediately, rather than storing the fully-assembled product for later.
Frequently Asked Questions
Here are the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about hummus vegetable wraps:
Why do my wraps always fall apart?
It isn’t unusual for a wrap to start unraveling if you’ve stuffed it with too many ingredients. Try to avoid overstuffing your tortilla and make sure to use a fresh tortilla, as stale ones are far more likely to break and tear.
Can you eat veggie wraps warm?
If you’re looking for a hot lunch to keep you warm in these cold winter months, you’re in luck. These delicious veggie wraps can easily be warmed up by grilling them or cooking them in a dry pan on the stove for a few minutes on each side.
