Recipe of the Week: Hummus and Vegetable Wrap

May 15th is National hummus day!  I bet you 15 years ago, unless you were eating in a middle eastern restaurant, you'd probably never heard of hummus.  Now today, it's everywhere (I even posted this recipe last year).

Instead of snacking on hummus with chips or veggies, how about spreading it on a sandwich.  If you are not a fan, you could easily substitute cream cheese, tzatziki or baba ghanoush for hummus.


Hummus Vegetable Wrap - Adapted from Pioneer Woman


Makes 2 wraps

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 sweet yellow onion, halved then sliced
2 cups mixed greens
2 tablespoons balsamic salad dressing
2 spinach flour tortillas (I also like multi-grain flatbread)
1/2 cup hummus
1 avocado, sliced
8 artichoke heart quarters (canned)
1/2 cup feta cheese crumbles


Add oil to skillet over medium heat.  Add the onion and cook slowly for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until soft and brown.  Set aside and let them cool slightly.

Mix greens with balsamic dressing and set aside.

Warm the tortilla or flat bread in a pan over medium heat.  The tortilla should be soft and pliable when assembling wrap.

Once the tortilla is warm, spread the hummus down the middle of the tortilla.  Arrange the onion, avocado and artichoke hearts on top of hummus.  Next add the dressed greens and finally sprinkle with feta.

Carefully wrap up the tortilla.  To serve, slice down the middle.

This recipe makes two whole wraps.
