Vegetarian wraps vs. garden salad
I think there are some great benefits to eating a hummus wrap rather than a salad. They are:
- Portable – If you have ever tried to eat a salad on the go, you already know that it’s not very easy to do.
- Convenient – With no salad dressing on the hummus wrap, you’ll never have soggy salad greens!
- Hand held – As a parent, it can be tough to get toddlers and young kids to eat salad. A hummus veggie wrap is fun to eat, and easy for little hands to hold.
- Versatile – They are a great way to get a big dose of greens that isn’t a salad.
Hummus Wrap Ingredients
I make my vegetarian wraps using either gluten-free brown rice or La Tortilla Factory gluten-free tortillas.
NOTE: Keep in mind that with some gluten-free tortillas, you will need to heat them up to make them pliable. To do this, just warm them in a microwave for 15 seconds on each side.
If you prefer to use something else, consider stuffing the filling into a pita. Or, roll it up in flatbread, naan, or a large spinach flour tortilla.
Here’s where you can become really creative when you make your vegetarian wraps. I like to use Mediterranean vegetables, but you can definitely swap these veggies for anything you like.
- Greens – I pile on a lot of spinach to make the wrap nice and bulky. Other good options are romaine lettuce, collard greens, and arugula. Try to avoid anything shredded… as you’re eating, it tends to fall out through the ends of the wrap.
- Cucumber – Cut it into thin slices. As a result, you can fit more veggies in.
- Avocado – If you want to, you can even use guacamole. There is even a brand of guacamole hummus available!
- Olives – Because this hummus wrap has Mediterranean vegetables, I use Kalamata olives. Feel free to use black or green olives if you prefer them.
Feta is my favorite, so that’s what I use. Let your taste buds guide you in selecting which type to use, or omit the cheese completely.
Any kind of hummus will work here! I usually use classic hummus but other flavors like roasted red pepper or garlic work too.
How to make a hummus wrap
Making lunch really doesn’t get much easier than this!
- Soften the tortilla (if necessary) and place it onto a serving plate.
- Spread your hummus evenly over the tortilla or wrap of your choice. To prevent the hummus from oozing out, leave a half-inch or so of border around the outside.
- Add the Mediterranean vegetables in even layers, either on top of one another, or side by side.
- Sprinkle feta cheese over the veggies, if desired. If you want a little extra flavor, you can squeeze a little lemon juice or a light vinaigrette over the filling.

How to roll a wrap
- Place a wrap with the fillings on it in front of you.
- Fold in one inch from both the right and left sides.
- Starting with the edge closest to you, start rolling the tortilla, holding it firmly to prevent the fillings from moving too much.
