I want to share with you my new favorite SUPER QUICK meal! I have been eating this for lunch on a very regular basis lately. This is definitely my new go-to healthy “get it all in one wrap” meal.
1 whole grain tortilla
1/2 cup (packed) steamed Harvest Sensations Kale
1/2-1/3 cup Eden Organics canned beans (Great Northern, Black, Chickpeas, etc)
1/4 cup sliced cherry or grape tomatoes
2 Tbs chopped basil
2-3Tbs. Sabra Chipotle Hummus
I came across this hummus a few weeks ago and thought I’d give it a try. It is one of my new obsessions. Word to the wise…it is SPICY, but that is why I like it. This hummus has so many applications. I have been using it as a sandwich spread, mixed with beans and veggies (see above), thinning it and using it as a salad dressing. I LOVE IT!
Wraps are just such amazingly easy meals. For this wrap simply warm the tortilla and while it is warming mix together the tomatoes (slice in half), basil, beans, and hummus.
Once the tortilla is warmed lay down the steamed kale (spinach would work great here too…I would use it raw), and pour the bean/veggie/hummus mixture on top. Yum!

Happy Valentine’s Day!!! I hope you have a loved filled day.
I know many of you will be rushing off to have dinner with your honey tonight and need a quick meal solution for your little ones and the sitter. My children love this meal and I love how quick it is (we ate it for lunch on Saturday). The nutritional yeast acts as a great substitute for parmesian cheese…it makes the pasta sauce nice and creamy all without having to use dairy…good stuff!
