Hummus Chicken Wraps

Serves 4


    Hummus Chicken Wraps

    This protein-packed wrap will breathe new life into your lunch sandwich routine. Creamy hummus is adorned with peppery arugula, seasonal asparagus, and protein-wealthy chicken. The wraps can be prepared the night before serving.


    Whip it good

    There are many excellent hummus brands on the market that make for a convenient sandwich spread, or you can quickly rustle up your own hummus. Simply blend together a can of drained chickpeas with tahini, olive oil, fresh lemon juice, chopped garlic, and salt (to taste) until creamy. You can jazz it up with other seasonings such as smoked paprika or za’atar.
