Kids lunchbox: Grilled hummus wraps


These wrap bites are crunchy on the outside, cheesy and full of flavor and texture on the inside.

What you need: makes 4 rolls
4, 7-inch homemade/store bought whole wheat tortillas or chapattis
1 cup red pepper hummus
10 oz Mexican cheese, shredded
20 deli turkey slices thin cut
1/2 cup colored peppers, diced
1/2 cup lettuce, diced
1/2 cup white onions, diced
1/2 cup carrots, shredded
Salt and pepper to taste


Place a tortilla of a flat surface. Slap on a good amount of hummus and spread it on one side of the tortilla.  Layer it with turkey slices, followed by shredded cheese, peppers, lettuce and carrots. Roll it tightly from one end to the other into a wrap.

Heat the Panini press to medium-high heat. Once the grill is hot and smoking, place the wrap on the grill. Cover the Panini press on it gently and let it brown. Depending on your Panini press, it will take 2 minute or more to get brown. When the cheese has melted and the wrap has lightly browned grill marks, remove and let cool. Repeat for the other 3 tortillas.




Cut into bite sized pieces and serve warm. Enjoy!
