I have been living in England for 11 years and I have never experienced such a hot September. A very hot September may I add. I don’t know about you but when it is hot I don’t crave cooked food at all. My body wants something easy, light, refreshing and this is when this delicious, super easy and tasty, clean eating roasted red pepper hummus wrap recipe is just what I need.
I am literally sitting on the floor in the hall next to the shoe cupboard while typing this recipe for you. It’s a scorcher today! This post is another from my “salad series” sponsored by the lovely Florette salad, where I am showing you other ways how to include more leafy veg into your diet. The first recipe, a butternut squash salad with an insane almond butter dressing, was an absolute winner with you , so I hope for the same with this one.
Maintaining a healthy, balanced diet high in vitamins, minerals and other nutrients is so important, but not always easy. They all help keep our bodies working to their maximum potential in these crazy busy times. I am sure most of you aren’t eating the recommended five portions of fruit and vegetables needed to maintain the required levels of vitamins and nutrients so here I am with my clean eating roasted red pepper hummus wrap recipe to help you to get them all in at one time. This is the perfect rounded combo of protein and good fats, along with fibre. You are welcome!
For this recipe I am using these wraps/tortillas.They are clean and taste delicious. I got them from Asda but have seen them on Ocado too.
If you fancy making your own ones, then I have the perfect recipe for you right here. I am also adding some canned beans; they boost the fibre content while helping you to feel fuller for longer. Just mash them up with some cut up cherry tomatoes and spread over the hummus layer. Top it up with some avocado chunks, add some Florette baby leaf and rocket salad leaves, sweet corn and you have the perfect lunch. Just setting aside time to prep your next day’s lunch will save you worrying about what to make in the morning rush or avoiding heading to a sandwich shop for a mayo-heavy lunch during your lunch break.
Here's the clean eating roasted red pepper hummus wrap recipe
- 1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
- 2 big red peppers (seeds removed) and halved
- 1 heaped tablespoon tahini
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1 small clove garlic, minced
- Juice from 1 lemon or lime
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- Optional; 1 tablespoon water in case the hummus is too thick
- The wraps and toppings
- ½ bag Florette baby leaf and rocket salad
- 4 wholemeal wraps
- ½ can red kidney beans
- Handful cherry tomatoes, roughly chopped
- 1 ripe avocado, cubed
- 1 fresh sweet corn, kernels cut off individually
- Preheat your oven to 200 degrees.
- Get a baking tray and line it with baking paper, then place the deseeded and halved peppers on the baking tray and pop in the oven for around 18 minutes or until the skins are black all over.
- Once roasted, take out of the oven and let cool down completely. Once cooled, peel off the skin and set aside.
- In a bowl mash the kidney beans lightly, then add tomatoes and a pinch of salt.
- Next get your blender ready and tip in the chickpeas, tahini, olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, salt, pepper and the red peppers. Process until smooth, taste and adjust seasoning. If too thick, add splash of water.
- All that is left now is to create the wrap.
- Divide the hummus between 4 tortillas and spread it evenly, I like a nice thick layer. Next divide equally the kidney beans and tomato mixture, then do the same with the salad leaves, avocado, and sweet corn.
- I love eating these either rolled up or you could make them into a pizza style by popping the tortillas under a grill for 2 minutes to harden them up and then layering with hummus and the other delicious ingredients.
