Artichoke Hummus Wraps

So many of the foods I make, other than peanut butter sandwiches which have also been made on the road after grabbing a jar of peanut and a loaf of bread from a store I passed while driving a car full of really hungry children, are made at home to be enjoyed at home. I’m not really a big fan of peanut butter sandwiches, but they are quick and convenient to make and the kids absolutely love them. I “broke it down” here. Peanut butter sandwiches really hit the spot, but I will say I feel so lame and a little bit bummed sitting for lunch while on a field trip and cracking open my lunch of a peanut butter sandwich. Hey, I cook so much better than that and for some reason every time we hit the road, I never know what to fix.

Well, if you find yourself looking for a delicious way to spice up lunch whether you are at home, heading out on a field trip with the kids, invited to a potluck, enjoying a picnic at the park, or want a quick and nutritious meal that really hits the spot, then these wraps (any wraps for that matter) can make a meal a little less lame and a lot more delicious.

I got this recipe from my favorite freebie magazine, Something Extra, that you can only get if you live on the West Coast or unless your father sends them to you in the mail every quarter. Fortunately, I already had this recipe from a previous issue because I’m thinking that I might be a few issues behind. (Daddy, that’s for you!)

To start off, one of the key ingredients you need it hummus. Take a look at this hummus recipe before shopping for your ingredients to be sure you have everything you need when you are ready to make these wraps. If you already have them now, then I’ll wait while you mix everything together. Don’t worry, I’m patient. I’ve wanted to read a good book lately anyway.

Once your hummus is ready spread it across an 8” or larger tortilla. You just might be saying to yourself that this doesn’t look like it’s starting out too good. Ahh-ha FOOLED YA! I know, I know, but hummus is actually quite tasty. If you must, just close your eyes during this part. Actually, that may not be such a good idea.

artichokes for hummus wrap

Although this recipe calls for marinated artichokes, I had to use regular, not seasoned ones. I couldn’t find one jar or can of marinated artichokes in this small town of mine. I considered driving the 30 minutes to a real grocery store, but I was hungry and didn’t think my body would last the wait.

Add a few roasted red bell peppers (you can get the recipe here).

I usually just add spinach, but I had some lettuce left over from a salad. The only two things you ever really need to remember when making a wrap is that anything goes (inside), but just don’t overflow (put too much of those anythings).

Just finish with the scallions.

delicious and nutritious artichoke hummus wraps

Wrap it real tightly and chow down. Oh this was so good. Despite all of its healthiness, I did eat a few potato chips on the side. Hey, I never claimed to be a health nut, but I am running closely behind the pack.

8 oz. of hummus
3 8″ or larger flour tortillas
1 7.5oz jar of marinated artichoke hearts
1 cup roasted red bell pepper (diced or strips)
  1 cup shredded romaine lettuce
1 cup spinach, chopped
1 2.2oz can drained, sliced ripe olives
2 small sliced scallions

1. Chop/slice everything before starting. That includes the artichokes, bell pepper, lettuce, spinach, olives, and scallions.
2. Spread 1/2 cup hummus onto the tortillas.
3. Add the following on top of the hummus: artichoke, peppers, lettuce, spinach, olives, and scallions. Spread evenly to use on three tortillas.
4. Roll the wrap tightly and slice into serving sizes (1/2 or 1/3).

    You have such wonderful receipes. I have to try this too

    Keya,

    I love this hummus wrap recipe. It is really easy to make and you can use any combination of vegetables/ingredients because I guess fruit could also be used; with the hummus, I’m feeling pineapple right now.

    I’m glad you’re enjoying the recipes. I’ll try to keep them coming.
