Recipe: My Favorite Veggie Wrap

By on June 20, 2014 in Healthy Living, Recipes with 1 Comment

Summer is a time for lots of fresh fruits and veggies. There’s always a point in the year when I stop heating things up and I start eating more sandwiches and salads. My body craves fresh textures and flavors, and I must obey!

DSC_6936I’ve been making this veggie wrap for about a month, and it gets better every time! It’s perfect to take on the go, and I’ve made it and carted it along to several baseball games. It’s vegan, accidentally nut-free and totally easy to throw together.

DSC_6882Start by gathering up your ingredients, most of which can be found in the produce drawer: a carrot, apple, half an avocado, and any salad green you have around. I used spinach here, but I’ve also used butter lettuce and romaine and had equally good results.

You’ll also need some hummus. Any brand, and probably any flavor will do here, but I usually just stick to the Trader Joe’s plain hummus. And finally, some large tortillas and tahini.

Start by laying the tortilla down and spreading it with a thick layer of hummus. Don’t skimp!

DSC_6893Then add some carrot sticks, apple and sliced avocado.

DSC_6910Add a big handful of greens on top and drizzle with plenty of tahini.

DSC_6928Now, get some aluminum foil or parchment paper and wrap this thing up! It’ll be bursting at the seams, so you’ll need something to keep the filling from falling out the bottom.

DSC_6932There’s something wonderful about a veggie wrap bursting with ingredients. Veggie wraps are usually really wimpy. This one is hefty and full of flavor and crunch!
