These easy-to-make Mediterranean wraps are perfect for Spring! My favorite way to fix up lunch is to make-do with what we already have in the kitchen and pantry. It’s a great way for me to avoid food waste, and makes prep-time quicker. In general, I like to cook simply. My husband is the intricate chef. I am the basic farmer. I just recently posted these wraps on my Instagram stories, and I received a lot of positive feedback and recipe requests. So I thought I’d share this Mediterranean wrap recipe.
To be honest, there is no official tried and true recipe because wraps really depend on what I’ve got from the week before. It’s such a laissez-faire conglomeration of food items that I debated whether writing this post was useful at all. Despite being a hodge-podge of random items, the ‘recipe’ ended up tasting good so I decided it’s worth noting here.
It just so happens that we had left-over quinoa from when we ate salmon. I also had left-over spring greens from when we made a salad. Mikey whipped up his hummus from scratch for the ‘sauce’. Any store-bought hummus or online basic hummus recipe will do. And we chopped up some cucumber and tomatoes. I topped the stack with sauerkraut and feta cheese … for good measure.
- Your favorite hummus
- Cooked quinoa, drizzled with olive oil and lemon (or a Greek vinaigrette)
- Spring mix of greens
- Chopped cucumber
- Chopped tomatoes
- Pickled red onion
- Feta Cheese
- Flour tortillas (burrito size)
All you have to do is layer on the ingredients in the order they are listed above. I like to cover the majority of the tortilla with hummus, leaving only an-inch of hummus-free border around the perimeter. I do quinoa : spring mix : cucumber : tomato: red onion : sauerkraut in a 2 : 2 : 1 : 1 : 1 : 1 ratio. Feta cheese is quite liberal, although Mike prefers to skip that. Then roll it all up in as neat of a burrito as you can, and cut in half.
Whether this classifies as Mediterranean wraps is still up in the air. All I know is that it’s good and healthy. You can always prepare these ahead of time, for the perfect grab-and-go lunch or treat.
