I’m a huge advocate of salads for lunch, or really salads for any meal, but sometimes (especially with the chill of winter), something a bit more is required! Enter these super-quick and packed-full-of-veggies Rainbow Hummus Rolls.
Raise your hand if you love learning new, easy (and healthy) vegan lunch ideas?
I thought so!
Well, I’m here to deliver on some serious plant-powered goodness that is surprisingly satisfying and a nice weekly change-up from your standard salad.
Um, just look at the veggieliciousness going on here:
Being nutritarian means eating a goal of 1 pounds of fresh veggies daily.
Though not as potent as a salad, these rainbow rolls will have you well on your way to your daily dose of fresh, raw veggies–and it’s going to be hella yummy along the way!
Eat these Rainbow Hummus Rolls for lunch with your favorite no-oil, low-salt veggie or bean-based soup!
Let’s dig right in…
Your first step is to round up all the fresh veggies you can muster! More is better!
This can be made even easier if you follow my salad-bar-in-the-fridge approach to weekly food prep!
Chop, dice, slice or sliver your favorites and get ready to roll…
You’ll need a batch of No-Oil Humus to be the glue that holds all the veggie goodness together! You’ll also need to grab you’re favorite vegan whole wheat wrap. Or, if you’re feeling up to some cooking, try this 4-ingredient wheat wrap recipe from The Lean Green Bean!
I made these over the weekend, for hubby and I, and paired them with Beet-Hummus dressing for fun dipping and a bowl of black bean and veggie soup on the side.
Warm, comforting, fun and fresh, here’s your recipe:
Rainbow Hummus Rolls
Veggie-packed, plant-powered goodness, these rolls make the perfect quick lunch paired with your favorite bean or veggie soup!
- 2 vegan whole wheat wraps
- 1/2 cup diced red peppers
- 1/2 cup diced yellow pepper
- 1/2 cup diced red cabbage
- 2 large carrots, peeled
- 6 to 8 tbsp no-oil, no-added-salt hummus
- 2 tbsp raw, unsalted sunflower seeds or use any raw seeds of your choice
Heat wraps for 10 to 20 seconds in the microwave.
Use this No-Oil Nutritarian Hummus recipe. Depending on the diameter of your wrap, spread each with 3 to 4 tbsp. hummus.
Divide veggies and sprinkle on top of the hummus on each wrap. Make sure to stop your veggies about 2 inches down from the edge of the tortillas (this will help the wraps seal up better).
Starting on the opposite end of where you left a gap, roll upwards tightly and press down to seal.
Eat as whole wraps or cut into 1 1/2 to 2 inch pieces to make sushi-like rolls! Serve with your favorite plant-based dip (like this No-Oil Beet Hummus Dressing) or eat with your favorite soup!
