Vegetarian Hummus Wraps Ingredients
Here’s what you need to make these delicious veggie wraps:
- hummus – either store-bought or make your favorite recipe (this is my favorite)
- spiced chickpeas – with cumin, chili powder, garlic and paprika
- zucchini in garlic sauce – this is an amazing appetizer made with zucchini and yogurt that I grew up eating and it’s a great addition to these wraps, it was sooo good!
- your favorite vegetables – I used bell peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, scallions and basil! Spinach, arugula, roasted eggplant or cauliflower can be a great addition as well!
How To Make The Vegetarian Hummus Wraps For Lunch
If you’re organized, you can make your own veggie wraps easily in 30 minutes. Here’s what you will be doing:
- Rinse and drain the canned chickpeas. Then saute them with a little bit of olive oil, garlic, paprika, chili powder and cumin for about 5 minutes. The chickpeas should be completely coated with spices once they’re done.
- While you’re making the chickpeas, you can also saute the zucchini for the zucchini garlic sauce. Once they’re done, simply mix them with yogurt, garlic, salt and some olive oil.
- To prepare your own hummus, simply add chickpeas, tahini, garlic, lemon juice, salt and water to a blender or an immersion blender cup and blend until smooth. You’ll get the creamiest, most delicious hummus.
- Next, wash and chop the cucumber, pepper, tomatoes, scallions and basil. You can also add some spinach, arugula or lettuce to up the content of leafy greens.
- Start assembling the wraps by spreading 1-2 tbsp hummus over the lightly toasted tortilla. Then add chickpeas and the zucchini sauce. Finally put the vegetables in the middle of the tortilla.
- Wrap like a burrito or fold like a taco and enjoy immediately!
Please note that my tortillas were pretty small and I overfilled them, which lead to me not being able to fold like a burrito. Instead, I ate them like tacos and they were still AMAZING.

If you have any dietary restrictions, these wraps are pretty easy to adjust. The recipe is naturally vegetarian, soy- and nut-free, but you can also make it:
