Roasted Red Pepper Hummus and Veggie Wraps

I don’t know about you, but I have such a hard time coming up with lunch ideas. And it doesn’t help that my husband is really limited to what he can bring with him. He’s on the road non-stop and his “office” is his car, which means I can’t pack anything that needs to be warmed in a microwave.

This week, I decided to make wraps. Boring, I know, but it’s an improvement from the peanut butter and jelly sandwiches he’s been taking.

For this particular wrap, I made a roasted red pepper hummus, and I added baby spinach, shredded carrots, sliced cucumber and red onion, and shredded iceberg lettuce from Ancho Lentil Tacos I made earlier in the week. The wrap bread itself was an extra-large, whole wheat tortilla. Simple, fast and cheap. My kind of meal.

Do you have suggestions for cheap and easy lunch ideas that don’t require a microwave?

  1. My youngest takes his lunch everyday and we’ve found that marinated tofu is a really good option. I dress it up with sesame seeds or shredded carrots, etc.. Although today he is taking something that looks a lot like your wrap!

    • Marinated tofu is a great idea! The protein will be more filling. I’m definitely going to give that a try this week. Thanks for the tip!
