Mediterranean Hummus Wrap
9” round spinach pita wrap
¼ c roasted red pepper hummus
½ c zucchini strips, sliced lengthwise
1 Tbsp sliced, pitted kalamata, black, or green olives
¼ c shredded carrots
4 thin tomato slices
½ c shredded reduced-fat mild cheddar
½ c shredded lettuce
Spread hummus on the lower third of the wrap.
Layer zucchini, olives, carrot, tomato, cheese, and lettuce in the center of the wrap.
Roll the wrap from the bottom toward the center. Fold the sides in, then roll the entire sandwich into a neat pocket.
Cut wrap in half on an angle.
Each half of this wrap contains 237 calories and 11 grams of fat. If the wrap is being considered a snack rather than a meal, half will do and the rest can be saved for later.
*Tip: If you want to save on prep time or avoid buying entire produce items, go to your grocery’s salad bar. You will find fresh ingredients that are already sliced, and the price may even be less than buying from the produce aisle.
This is a fantastic recipe because it incorporates bold flavors and many fresh nutrient-packed ingredients into one item. Feel free to substitute another type of wrap, insert peppers instead of olives, etc. Enjoy!
