Avocado toast may be the latest food trend, but vegans and Californians who love avocado have been adding avocado to sandwiches, toasts, and wraps for decades. So if you're looking for the perfect way to make an avocado wrap vegan, or use up some leftover guacamole, this wrap sandwich may be one delicious way to do so. Try this vegan California-style avocado hummus wrap recipe. It's loaded with hummus, avocado, alfalfa sprouts, tomatoes, and cucumbers.
Here's the perfect way to make a simple avocado wrap for lunch. You can use vegan cream cheese in your wrap if you would like a creamier experience, but the hummus, which is a popular Middle Eastern spread made from chickpeas, tahini, garlic and, olive oil, tastes really great alongside the avocado. Feel free add some pickles or pickle relish as well.
3 tablespoons hummus
1/4 avocado, thinly sliced
1/3 cup alfalfa sprouts
2 to 4 slices tomato
4 slices cucumber, optional
Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients.
Bring flour tortilla to room temperature.
Spread hummus down the middle of the flour tortilla.
Arrange avocado, alfalfa sprouts, tomato, and cucumber (if using) on top of hummus and fold up into a sandwich wrap.
Hummus is really great on wraps, and not just this one. Make up a batch on your own and season it according to your own tastes (hint: extra lemon juice is always good!). Once you've used it for this sandwich, if hummus is new to you, you'll find that it's a versatile dip that accompanies crackers, vegetables, tortilla chips, or pita wedges.
Of course, you can also buy any kind of hummus you like, as there's a wide variety of them in almost any grocery store these days, including some made with avocado.
Any hummus you make from scratch will be good in the refrigerator for 5 to 7 days as long as it's covered.
- Use a few leaves of green lettuce instead of the alfalfa sprouts, or add a combination of both to the wrap.
- If you're not gluten-free, you can often find gluten-free wraps at the supermarket, often near the bread display. Or try a grain-free version or even use a large lettuce leaf instead from something soft and pliable like butter lettuce.
- Feel free to use any kind of sprouts you like, or other microgreens such as pea shoots, for example, if you're making this wrap in the spring.
