Some weeks (and some weekends) are just busier than others. When you need a very quick, very healthy lunch that can be prepared in about 5 minutes (give or take a minute or two), look no further than this super quick hummus red pepper wrap. This versatile wrap can be adjusted to taste – you can change out the cheese (feta would be great) or add Kalamata olives. You might use baby kale instead of baby spinach. You can also use various types of hummus – whatever suites your tastes and desires.
I made this in anticipation of yet another busy, crazy travel week. I have one day in the office and then am off again. I needed something I could throw together quickly on Sunday between doing laundry and packing for my trip. This wrap is very satisfying and will be perfect with a spinach and persimmon salad (no recipe there – I threw together a sliced persimmon, spinach and a little balsamic vinegar and called it a salad). No matter how busy tomorrow morning is, I’ll be looking forward to my lunch.
Super Quick Hummus Red Pepper Wrap
4 flour tortillas
4 slices of roasted red pepper (either from a jar or roast your own – see below)
8 tablespoons of pre-made hummus
1/2 a log of goat cheese – about 4 ounces
Baby spinach – a handful per wrap
Spread about two tablespoons hummus on each flour tortilla. Split the goat cheese between the tortillas. Layer the roasted red pepper on top and then add a handful of baby spinach. Fold up an end of a tortilla and then roll. Wrap tightly in aluminum foil and toss in your lunch bag or box for a healthy, tasty lunch.
Roasting Red Peppers
2 red bell peppers
2 teaspoons olive oil
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Cut each red bell pepper in half. Place the peppers cut side down on a baking sheet or cake pan. Drizzle olive oil over the top and roast for 30 – 40 minutes or until the peppers are charred on top. Let cool and peel.
