If there is one thing that I love about this time of year is the abundance of fresh, colorful produce. Last week I stumbled across a recipe on Minimalist Baker--a blog I frequent for very simple and clean, yet extremely delicious recipes. The recipes consists of 10 ingredients or less, requires a single spoon or bowl, or takes 30 minutes or less to prepare. As I was browsing through the site, a colorful recipe caught my eye: Rainbow Swiss Chard Hummus Wrap. I love how colorful this recipe is. The Swiss Chard, a vegetable that is often overlooked, gives this wrap great flavor and nutritionally dense. This afternoon, I decided to recreate this recipe and my own take to it.
What You'll Need
(Only 6 ingredients in my version)
- 1 large rainbow swiss chard leaf
- 1/4 cup hummus
- 1 tomato
- 1 cucumber
- 1 red onion
- broccoli sprouts (optional, I added these to my version of the recipe)
- Kitchen tools: A knife and cutting board
What You'll Need To Know
First, you will want to rinse and dry your swiss chard, cut off the stem; and shave the bottom thicker part of the stem this way it will roll up easier.
Then, you will want to thinly slice your veggies. I wish I had a Mandoline slicer--It would have expodited the process, and I would have ended up with perfectly thin slices!
I used a bright yellow heirloom tomato since they are in season, and it's tough to beat the flavor of a fresh heirloom tomato.
Top the center with hummus, and the veggies; wrap up and enjoy.
I used toothpicks to secure it. You can also just parchment to wrap it in and it take on the go. I also made one for my husband Gregg. I added turkey to his, which he loved. The wrap is absolutely tasty and filling.
