I am a dip and sauce kind of girl.  So for me, hummus is right up my alley.  I only wish I had discovered hummus sooner as I love dipping Baked Pita Chips in it for a delicious snack or using it as a base for a sandwich.  This recipe is one that I make often for lunch.  I change up the ingredients depending on what I have in my refrigerator at the time.  There is no wrong way to make this wrap - throw in your favorite veggies, top with some hummus, add an additional protein if you’d like (chicken, turkey, tofu) and you are good to go!

Notes:

Hummus can be refrigerated for up to 3 days and can be kept in the freezer for up to one month.  Add a little olive eoilif it appears to be too dry.

Feel free to pile on the veggies in this recipe.  I often use delicious micro greens that I get from my local farmer’s market.  You can add peppers, tomatoes, avocado, spinach, kale, sprouts, onions and even some quinoa (a complete protein) to really mix it up!  My husband loves to have quinoa wraps for lunch (topped with hot sauce!) but you can also add canned tuna or salmon, tofu or ground turkey.  The sky is the limit!
