I make this hummus and avocado turkey wrap almost every single day of the week. I can’t believe it is taking me this long to share it with my you. My apologies. I mainly make the wrap for my husband. He likes it because it is balanced and contains most of the nutrients needed for a good diet. It’s also very convenient for him to have a light lunch before long dental procedures such as implants or lumineers. And more importantly, it is delicious. A lot of people will tell me that turkey wrap for lunch will make you sleepy, but surprisingly, it doesn’t.
The wrap takes only minutes to make, but will save a lot of time during lunch hour to run to the deli, order and wait for your sandwich. You can use that time to go for a little walk instead. In fact, you can make this homemade hummus and avocado turkey wrap the night before, wrap it in plastic wrap, store it in the fridge and it will be ready to take with you to work the next day.
This is also a great recipe for college students. They can make it the night before and have lunch ready to go the next day. One less thing to worry about during finals week and they won’t go hungry.
In the ingredients, I will not be giving the exact measurements. This is a sandwich, and I believe that it is up to you to use as much or as little meat, cheese, ext… Let’s get to it, shall we!
Prep time: 5 minutes
One flour or corn tortilla
Sliced oven-roasted turkey
Provolone Cheese or your favorite cheese
Slices of Avocado
Spread some hummus of a tortilla. You can use mayo instead. But hummus will be the healthier version and in my opinion, it tastes a lot better than mayo. Lay out the oven-roasted turkey slices and provolone cheese. I only use one slice of cheese and split in half, but you can use 2 or 3. Top it off with baby spinach and avocado slices right down the middle of the tortilla.
You can used lettuce, arugula or any kind of greens for the wrap, but I find this a great and easy way to add spinach to our diet.
Here is a tip for you, when you buy baby spinach, wash it, drain it really well and dry it with paper towel. Then wrap it a dry paper towel or clean kitchen towel, put it large ziploc bag and store it in the fridge. Whenever you need baby spinach for sandwiches, pastas or milkshakes, it will be ready to go. Also, when you store it this way, it will last you a lot longer in the fridge. 🙂
Spread some more hummus on top of the turkey.
Wrap the stuffed tortilla tightly without losing any greens or avocados. You can either cut it in half and enjoy it right away, or wrap it in a plastic wrap and save it in the fridge for a later time.
I like to serve hummus and avocado turkey wrap with a side tomato and cucumber salad or fruit.
