Wrap it up!

By Kary Osmond on

1/2 cup hummus

2 cups baby spinach

1 1/2 cups grated carrot (2 carrots)

1 tomato, sliced

1 avocado, pitted, peeled and sliced

2 tablespoons roasted sunflower seeds



1. In a bowl, whisk together vinegar and coconut sugar. Add grated beet; toss to coat. Allow to marinate for 10 minutes, then drain; squeeze the beets to remove as much liquid as possible. Set aside.


2. Lay tortillas on a clean surface; arrange hummus, spinach, carrot, tomato, avocado, beet and sunflower seeds in the center of each tortilla. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.

3. To fold wrap, fold in the sides of the tortilla and roll from the bottom up. Wrap each roll in wax paper to keep the wraps tight and protected.

Tasty tips

--Look for soft, pliable tortilla wraps; they're much easier to work with and won't crack when you roll them.

--Substitute white or cane sugar for coconut sugar.

--Have fun with the ingredients; try experimenting with ingredients you have in your fridge to make your own creation.

--If you're unsure how to roll the wrap, you can find lots of helpful videos online.
