This easy Hummus, Cucumber, and Avocado Wrap recipe is as good for dinner as it is for lunch (or even breakfast, for that matter). You can use homemade hummus or store-bought; either way, it's made in minutes. For lunch, serve with plenty of fruit; for dinner, serve with soup and/or a simple side dish. It goes well with quinoa tabbouli, or any potato salad. And you need not slavishly follow a recipe, either—make enough for one, or as many as needed. Photos by Lori Maffei.
Hummus, Cucumber, and Avocado Wrap
Makes as many as you need
- soft whole-grain wrap or wraps (works with lavash bread as well)
- hummus—your favorite kind, homemade or store-bought (I highly recommend olive hummus with this!)
- cucumbers, thinly sliced, as needed
- tomatoes, thinly sliced, as needed
- avocado, peeled and thinly sliced, as needed
- romaine lettuce, thinly shredded
- mixed baby greens—baby spinach, baby arugula, or a combination
- Place a room-temperature wrap on a plate or cutting board.
- Spread generously with hummus (though not so much that it will ooze from the sandwich).
- Arrange a row each of cucumber, tomatoes, and avocado down the center.
- Cover with a big handful of the leafy greens of your choice.
- Fold two opposite sides of the wrap over the center, then roll up snugly, making sure the ends stay tucked in.
- Cut in half to serve.
