Here’s a tasty, nutritious recipe that is fun to make with your children. These wraps are ideal for healthy school lunches, a family picnic, or a healthy snack. For a gluten-free version, omit the tortillas and serve the colorful vegetables and hummus on top of black beans or brown rice, cooked according to the package instructions.
6 large whole-wheat tortillas
9 tablespoons hummus
3 medium tomatoes, diced
2 carrots, peeled and shredded
2 yellow peppers, sliced into strips
2 cups shredded lettuce or spinach
4 red cabbage or radicchio leaves, shredded
Spread 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of hummus on each tortilla. Use the veggies to create a rainbow on each tortilla, leaving some room around the edges. Fold in sides of each tortilla, then roll it up tight. Cut wraps in half and then serve. Enjoy tasting the rainbow!
