These past few days, I had been turning to simple and easy recipes to keep me happy and full. The likes pansheet dinners, salads, sandwhiches and wraps are some of my favorite go to meals. What’s not to like? They are very easy to make, and the ingredients are simple and can easily be mix and match. The perfect chance to use small pieces of left over vegetables. Plus, they require no time at all to prepare, and most of the time you do not even need a recipe to make them.
This tortilla wrap or tortilla pinwheel is one of those kind of dish. Simple, easy and budget friendly. Let us talk about what you will need to make this.
The Choice of Soft Tortilla
You can use any type of soft tortilla. I used Spinach tortilla for this one, whole wheat, or the classic white tortilla will be as good, or even corn tortilla if you can find a large one. Take the tortilla out of the refrigerator at least 30 minutes before using it. This way it is a bit soft and pliable which will make the rolling easier. If you forgot to do that, simly microwave the tortilla for about 15 – 20 seconds. Do not microwave for too long or it will be crispy.
The Choice of Hummus
You’ve probably made a lot of wraps (or maybe not?), so you know how easy and convenient it is for a quick snack or meal. This is also a great option to serve for appetizer, one easy recipe to make. There is nothing complicated here, basically the most that you have to do is to make the hummus. You can use store-bought hummus to make it easier, but I personally like making my own. Homemade is always 100% better for me, no preservatives and I get to control what I add in it. At the end of the day, it is up to you to decide depending on how much time you have on hand, plus your budget. I used my Roasted Bell Pepper Hummus, and added some turmeric powder in it for more vibrant color. Turmeric powder have plenty of health benfits so I like to add them a lot t my foods whenever possible. Any variation of hummus will work just fine, I left some of my favorite homemade hummus at the end of the post so be sure to read till the end. The hummus replaces the salad spread, dressing or mayonnaise. I have nothing against them, in fact I used those from time to time. But this time around, I want to make this pinwheel a little bit healthier, just to compensate for all the sweets I ate during the Holiday season. It is time to go back on track, but going back on track doesn’t mean depriving myself of delicous meals. For me, this certainly is not boring or bland.

- Fill the Tortilla Lay the soft tortilla on a flat surface. Spread hummus on top, leaving 1-inch boarder without hummus. Arrange the sliced carrots, bell pepper, radish and lettuce. Sprinkle salt and pepper on top.
