Spring Vegetable Wraps

It dawned on me the other day that I’ve shared many salads but have never talked about bundling all the fresh veggies into a compact food to be held in your hand. Wraps and rolls are very popular. My sister loves rolls made with rice paper as in spring Vietnamese vegetable rolls.  Others like me love using flour tortillas or pitas to wrap all kinds of great taste.

Today I’m sharing a hummus spring vegetable wrap with several options on how to wrap it.  If you are looking for gluten-free, use the rice paper, or corn tortilla to roll up your goodies.  For grain-free, use romaine lettuce leaves, cabbage leaf or even a collard leaf to hold it all together. If you wish to try a collard wrap, first remove the large rib and cut collard leaf in half.  Overlap the two cut sides and fill with your veggies.  This is a vegan vegetable wrap with vegetarian options.  It’s a great addition to your meatless meals and can be adapted to what is currently in the market. You can easily replace ingredients with your choice of vegetables. Mix them up with yummy hummus flavors and your favorite seasonings or try it with a herb dip. For egg lovers, add egg to the vegetables.

 

 

 

 

 

For spring I’m using hummus, spring greens, tomato, avocado, shredded carrot & cucumber, and a drizzle of vinaigrette all wrapped up in an extra roomy flour tortilla. Leafy greens are a super food that we all need to eat more of.  I prefer spinach or beet tortilla for extra flavor and nutrition but a good whole wheat wrap works great too. Vegetarian options include the addition of shredded cheese or scrambled egg but for vegans there are some tasty substitutes for those too. Add seasoned rice or quinoa for a more filling wrap. They’re great to make for multiple lunches or parties, as they are easy to make, portable and require no immediate refrigeration.

  1. I like wraps but seeing this now reminded me it will be an especially good lunch for Rick after his surgery when he has to be flat down — easy to eat, he could probably get away with a bib instead of a plate if need be! And healthy too.

  2. Those look really tasty. I’m never really sure what to put in a wrap but now you’ve given me lots of inspiration. I may even try one for lunch tomorrow.

  3. I love wraps, they are so fast to make, especially for breakfast, and delicious. I would keep my wraps vegan and, of course, I would use hummus as a base. I like your green wrap, that looks so different and yum.

      1. Thanks for sharing with us at Encouraging Hearts and Home today! I’ll be pinning this to our group board and featuring it as one of my favorites at next week’s party.

  4. Thanks so much for linking up with us at the #WednesdayAIMLinkParty 34! Shared ♥

  5. Hi Carol, I do enjoy a nice wrap, but am hopeless at making one that doesn’t fall apart. I do like the sound ofusing hummus in a wrap. Not something I have thought of even though I live in Greece 🤔.

  6. This looks fantastic! I’ve been wanting to find a way to add more veggies to my lunches, and I can’t believe I didn’t think of this. Now I need to head to the store to grab some wraps for my lunch! Thanks for sharing at Sweet Inspiration!

  7. Congrats Carol! Your post is FEATURED at the #WednesdayAIMLinkParty 35! Party starts tonight, Wed, Apr-17-2019 at 9:00 PM CST.
