Vegetarian Hummus Wrap

I love a good wrap and this one is so, so easy and satisfying. You can use store bought or homemade hummus and add any veggies or cheeses you like. I have my base method here with lots of options so you can customize it for your family.

This works nicely as a packed school lunch, as an easy lunch for home, and you can even deconstruct it for an older baby or a one year old. I love this as much as my kiddos do, so it’s an easy meal option we make and share a lot.

Ingredients You Need

To make this lunch wrap, you need these ingredients:

  • Tortillas: I use whole wheat flour tortillas here in fajita-size (which is a nice medium size for both kids and adults; you can go bigger or smaller if you prefer though).
  • Hummus: This works the same with purchased hummus or homemade hummus. And any flavor that you or your kids like works—Carrot, Beet, Sweet Potato, or Butternut Squash Hummus are all delicious.
  • Sliced cheese: This is optional, but adds more protein and satisfaction to the wrap. I like thinly sliced cheese, which is a little easier to roll up.
  • Thinly sliced raw veggies: Choose from shredded lettuce, shredded carrots, thinly sliced bell pepper, and/or thinly sliced cucumbers.

TIP: You can trade in a grain-free wrap if you prefer and use a nut- and seed-free hummus as needed.

Step-by-Step Instructions

Here’s a look at the process involved in making this wrap for kids. Scroll to the end of this post for the full recipe instructions.

  1. Place the wrap onto a cutting board or clean work surface. If it’s not at room temperature, warm it in the microwave for 15 seconds.
  2. Spread on the hummus to about ½ inch away from the edges. Add the cheese, if using, and veggies in a little line in the middle.
  3. Starting on one side, roll up as tightly as you can. Move the veggies back to the center if they move a little as you work to tightly secure them inside the wrap. The hummus will help hold the tortilla in place.
  4. Cut in half with a serrated knife and serve.

TIP: You can also serve the elements of this side-by-side so it’s easier for an older baby or a 1-year-old to eat.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a hummus wrap made of?

A hummus wrap is usually made with a wrap—usually a tortilla—hummus and an assortment of vegetables.

How long will a hummus wrap last in the fridge?

If wrapped tightly in plastic wrap or stored in an airtight container like a lunch box, you can store a hummus wrap in the fridge for about 2 days. (Plastic wrap will keep it fresher if you want to store it for 3 days.)

What’s the best wrap to use for a hummus wrap?

I prefer to use a whole wheat flour tortilla in a fajita size. This is easy to roll at room temperature and is a nice (not too giant!) size.

How to Store

Wrap each wrap tightly in plastic wrap and store in the fridge for up to 3 days. Or stored in an airtight container such as a lunch box in the fridge for about 2 days. (Plastic wrap will keep it fresher since it keeps more air out.)

Best Tips for Success

  • If your tortilla isn’t at room temperature, warm it for 15 seconds in the microwave or briefly in a pan over medium heat to help it become a little more pliable—and easy to roll.
  • I prefer to use a fajita-size tortilla in this recipe.
  • Trade in crumbled goat cheese or feta for the sliced cheddar cheese if you prefer.
  • Use thinly sliced veggies that you and the kids like.
  • Serve deconstructed for younger eaters who may find the texture of a full wrap too hard to hold and bite.
