Like wraps? Here is something new to try. A Wrawp. Smear with hummus, layer in some avocado, tomatoes and sprouts or lettuce greens and you have a super healthy wrap. Can’t find these wraps, just use your favorite wrap like brown rice tortillas. Avocado hummus wraps make a great lunch for work, school or snack.

Wrap it Up

If you pack lunch for school or the office, wraps are easy to make, easy to customize and easy to carry. Often made with large, soft wheat tortillas, here is a healthy and interesting alternative if you eat wheat-free and gluten-free.

Raw Wrawps

Always up for trying new things, here is my latest find. A raw, vegan flat bread called a Wrawp. Made by dehydration, a common process in raw kitchens, these raw wraps are made with ingredients like zucchini, apple, flax, coconut, onions, plus herbs and spices. Wrawps are wheat-free, gluten-free, nut-free, raw and have no added sugar. Amazing.

When I first discovered Wrawps they felt like cardboard. The kind of thing that people roll their eyes at when you mention health food.  They were so stiff I wondered how they would roll without breaking apart.

When I tried them, they quickly softened up, absorbing moisture from ingredients placed on top of them. The Wrawps soften up and roll well. Trust me.

How to Make a Wrap

Hummus makes a good first layer to smear on your wrap.  I started with homemade lemon-cumin hummus. Find my recipe here. If your hummus is stiff, not creamy, make it creamy by stirring in a little water.

Next, top the wrap with slices of tomato, avocado and jumbo sprouts. Instead of sprouts you could use soft salad greens. Drizzle with a little olive oil and a sprinkle of salt and pepper, then roll.  Cut the wrap across the middle.

If you use the Wrawp’s, one will serve two people, which might surprise you until you eat one. They are quite filling. For extras, serve with cucumber slices, a tossed green salad, or some fresh fruit.

Another option, this recipe for Roasted Red Pepper and Parmesan Hummus. If you don’t do dairy, add nutritional yeast instead of the Parmesan for a cheesy flavor. Have fun playing with your fillings and let me know what you come up with.

Where To Buy Wrawps

I found Wrawps at Lassens and Mothers Market in Southern California. Check out the Wrawp.com store locator page for other markets in your area, or order them online. (Note – 6/2015 I found them on Thrivemarket.com at a great price!)

I started with the original flavor and plan to try other flavors soon. Surprisingly I did not find them at my local Whole Foods, so I asked customer service to check them out and please order some. I will (politely) bug them until they do!

Avocado Hummus Wraps

While you can make wraps with tortillas, try this flatbread called a Wrawp as a fun and healthy alternative. They are gluten-free, vegan, raw, grain-free and totally delicious. Great for a school lunchbox or packing for the office. Serve alone or with cucumber slices, a green salad or fresh fruit. Make your hummus ahead of time to make assembly even faster.

  • 1 handful fresh sprouts or soft lettuce leaves
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil optional
  • 2 pinches salt and pepper
  • 1/2 small lemon optional

Instructions

  • Lay Wrawp flat and spread on hummus. Layer or spread on avocado, top with tomato and sprouts. Drizzle the sprouts with olive oil and season. Squeeze on lemon juice for fresh flavor.

Notes

If you can't find Wrawp's, substitute brown rice or your favorite tortilla. You may need one per person depending on size.

    Sally, love those wraps! I’m a big fan of avocado and chickpeas. Seeing both ingredients work in these wraps means a lot to me:-)
    I’m living and working in Europe right now, and my local store has very basic wraps. S, i do my own… If you have a good wrap recipe suggestion for me, I’d be very appreciative. Thank you!

    Hi La T – To make good vegan wraps you would probably need a dehydrator. My friend and fabulous raw vegan chef, Jenny Ross, wrote a cookbook on dehydrating and I bet there are recipes in her cookbook. You might check it out. If you get back to the states or have a friend or family coming over to visit, have them stick a few packages in their suitcase for you. They last for months and don’t have to be refrigerated. Check out the Wrawp.com website. Is there a vegan or raw restaurant anywhere near you? If so, you might see if you can buy some from them (if they make or carry them). If you eat wheat, use a soft, large whole wheat tortilla instead. One more idea, steam large green leaves, such as kale or collards or whatever is the equivalent where you are living. Steam until soft, then use as the wrap with the same filling. Let me know what you do!

    Hi there La Torontoise,
    I am a representative here at Wrawp Foods and I think I can help you get our wrawps in Europe. We are working with rawliving.eu, the carry and ship out product world wide! You may also place an order directly with us, if that was a more preferable option for you as well! Either way, we hope you enjoy!
