These Slow-Raosted Tomato and Basil Hummus Wraps can be sliced into pinwheels, making them a colorful, kid-friendly lunch. They’re great served with a side of Veggie Chips!

Eat Your Vegetables

Are there any vegetables that you absolutely will not eat? I have a few that I could do without, and a few that I like prepared some ways but not others, but I can’t think of very many that I just won’t eat.

Carrots and tomatoes, I’ll eat cooked, but not fresh. I’ll eat spinach raw (although I don’t enjoy it much), but unless it’s mixed in with a lot of other things, I won’t eat it cooked. I like peas sometimes, in small amounts, although snow peas can show up on my plate anytime and I’ll happily chow down on them. I try to push myself to give all these things another try once in a while (except my dreaded raw tomatoes), but whenever I do, I quickly conclude, “Okay, I just don’t like this.” And I think that’s okay; we don’t have to like everything, even healthy foods, as long as we’re eating a well-rounded diet.

Unfortunately, there are some people who don’t like any vegetables. And that can be a problem! A lot of kids just aren’t big on veggies, so parents try to find ways to sneak them in by throwing butternut squash into mac and cheese or shredded zucchini into muffins. When The Real Deal asked me to create a kid-friendly lunch, I was inspired by their sneaky Veggie Chips to find a way to pack veggies into a sandwich or wrap. And since there are a few veggies that I’m not fond of, I thought that if I could get myself to eat them in this wrap, kids would eat them too. Because when it comes to spinach? I’m kind of like a little kid. So how about Hummus Wraps?

Slow-Roasted Tomato & Basil Hummus + Veggie Hummus WrapsSlow-Roasted Tomato & Basil Hummus + Veggie Hummus WrapsAbout the Recipe

I started with Slow-Roasted Tomato and Basil Hummus Wraps. To keep calories and sodium in check, I added a low-sodium vegetable broth to the hummus, instead of a massive amount of olive oil (as some recipes call for) or liquid from the chickpeas (as other recipes instruct you to do). This adds a little boost of flavor too. I spread this on a round whole wheat lavash (although a tortilla would work just as well) and topped it with spinach and rainbow carrots. Like any kid, I’m drawn to bright colors. (I also like Hello Kitty, hence the bento box.)

Roll your wrap up, slice it, and you have colorful veggie pinwheels! Maybe they’re not as sneaky as butternut mac and cheese, but I think they’ll please most picky eaters. I mean, I loved them, and raw carrots are pretty much a deal-breaker for me in any meal!

The Real Deal Veggie ChipsSlow-Roasted Tomato & Basil Hummus + Veggie Hummus WrapsThe Real Deal Veggie Chips

Serve these up with a side of The Real Deal’s tasty baked Veggie Chips and you’ve got a healthy lunch for even the most stubborn veggie haters. I’m not a big fan of peas, the main ingredient in these chips, but I can’t stop eating them. (Especially the very not kid-friendly spicy Sriracha flavorβ€”yes, they make Sriracha-flavored Veggie Chips!) While baby carrots or celery sticks would be the best option, for kids who absolutely won’t touch fresh veggies, The Real Deal Veggie Chips are much better than fried potato chips or any snack food ending in -tos or beginning with the word Cheesy. Veggie Chips are natural, gluten-free, and a snack-sized bag contains only 100 calories and 2 grams of fatβ€”an ounce of Veggie Chips has a serving and a half of vegetables too.

Tomatoes, spinach, carrots and peas, all in one meal. And I loved it!

    That hummus sounds incredible, and these are beautiful! They would be perfect at a party. I don’t do fresh tomatoes, but roasted or barbecued they’re delicious!

      I’ve never had barbecued tomatoes! I should try that, because I do like them cooked. πŸ™‚

    I have a small problem with zucchini. But I’m trying to eat it from time to time. Spinach I love and so this wrap.

    I haven’t tried the Real Deal veggie chips, but this wrap looks fabulous! Funny, how tastes are so different…I count raw tomatoes {good ones!} as one of my top 10 favorite foods, and love peas too, just be sure and keep the turnips and rutabaga away from me πŸ™‚

      You know, I don’t think I’ve ever had a rutabaga! Maybe I should keep it that way? πŸ˜‰

    I have been obsessed with hummus lately, this looks so tasty. I definitely couldn’t try the Sriracha though.

    I love the way you used the hummus to hold everything together in these wraps. What a great idea and what a great wrap! Glad to hear that someone else prefers her tomatoes cooked. The only time I can eat a raw tomato is when it is picked fresh off the vine, it’s firm and sweet and is combined with something else and has a dressing of some type. πŸ™‚

      I can’t even eat them fresh off the vine. Which is really sad, since I grow them in my garden! πŸ™‚

      I’m the opposite! I will make myself eat it raw, but I like it better cooked. πŸ™‚

    I’ve never seen a hummus that uses roasted tomatoes before…that sounds like it would be perfect in a wrap, or a pizza sauce! Those carrot ribbons are so pretty, how could any kid not want to eat them? Very creative use of veggies!

      I just had a pizza last weekend with hummus instead of sauce and cheese! I was thinking about trying to do something similar at home–it was so good.

    I’m totally going to try getting my 4 year old to eat this. She’ll eat anything in taco form and loves all the ingredients. Hummus is the only way I can get her to eat carrots. This looks so light and filling!

    Hi. These look great, my daughter is a picky eater so here’s hoping she likes it. I know I will though so it will be a win either way. My only question is if the hummus recipe can be kept in the fridge and for how long?
