This tasty and filling Turkey, Avocado & Hummus Wrap is beyond delicious, and takes just 5 minutes to make.
I’ve officially changed my future retirement home location from Praiano to the Lake of the Ozarks.
That is to say – OMG WHAT A FREAKING BLAST THAT PLACE IS!
Friday morning Ben and I drove 5 hours south and arrived just in time to spend the entire afternoon boating, bobbing, sipping, and in general, having one of the best days ever on the monster-sized lake in central Missouri with our friends.
One of my favorite parts was checking out the homes – nay, estates – dotting the sheer cliff walls, coves, and lawns just off of the water. I am not kidding you when I tell you this 7,000+ sq ft home was one of the smaller places we saw!
Ok, sipping raspberry vodka mixed with coconut rum and a splash of Rose’s Mojito mixer (aka the best drink ever) while floating in the water in pool saddles provided some stiff competition (pun intended.) ;)
Ahh. Lake time is the best time. Now to start that pesky boat fund…
Another thing I loved about the lake were the fun restaurants and bars lining the water where you can park your boat then head in for some fun.
We went to a few places for dinner, but kept the afternoons casual and packed yummy wraps from home for a quick & easy floating lunch. Choosing from an assortment of deli meats, fresh toppings, and spreads, I came up with this Turkey, Avocado & Hummus Wrap that was so good, I made it both days we were there out on the water.
Lean deli turkey is layered on a whole wheat tortilla with zesty red pepper hummus, reamy avocado slices, and salty pickles for crunch, then rolled and sliced. The fact that it took all of 5 minutes to make made me swoon over this tasty, filling wrap even more. They are awesome for quick lunches any day of the week – whether on land, or lake!
Start the wrap with a tortilla. These organic Whole Wheat Tortillas from Whole Foods are really good. Very pliable and fresh tasting.
Next, spread on a layer of red pepper hummus. Now, I am very brand and flavor loyal to Sabra’s Red Pepper Hummus, but our local Whole Foods doesn’t carry it (I know!) so I went out on a limb and tried Chef Earl’s Red Pepper Hummus. It isn’t as smooth as Sabra’s but it definitely has good flavor!
Next layer on low-sodium deli turkey. Two to three slices should do ya’.
Top the wrap off with creamy fresh avocado slices and pickle slices for a crunchy, salty bite.
Roll & slice!
These wraps will keep perfectly in a Ziploc bag until lunchtime. If you can wait that long to dig in!
Turkey, Avocado & Hummus Wrap
Makes 1 wrap
1 whole wheat tortilla
2-3 Tablespoons red pepper hummus
3 slices low-sodium deli turkey
1/4 avocado, sliced
Spread tortilla with hummus, then layer on turkey, avocado, and pickles. Roll, then slice.
Feel free to throw any and all veggies in your wrap. I just loved the combo of these four ingredients. Nothing overpowered anything else, and it was just so GOOD!
Supplement with a fresh peach, cherries, or whatever you’ve got in your produce bin for an awesome, easy, well-balanced lunch. :D
In other news…
Yesterday we were rudely welcomed home from our summery weekend getaway from this guy, who’s all – Hey, it’s me! The tree in your neighbor’s yard that turns unseasonably gorgeous about a month too early every year making you panic, thinking summer is already over?! Hiii!
I’m not sure if it’s coming down from a fun weekend on the water, or coming home and seeing this – but I’m not ready for summer to end!
