hummus-bell pepper-feta wraps


We live a few hours away from our immediate family.  Which means we have had to create our own support network here to help us with our little people.  And sometimes my crew can be a teeny bit of work (the joy that is the age of 3 is quite the mommy secret – and I mean joy in the most sarcastic means you can conjure).  So I try to be as considerate as possible for the wonderful men and women that babysit for us.  Good coffee, money for take out, home cooked meals when I can swing it, lots of great cable tv to enjoy, etc.  I want to treat them in the same manner I know they treat my children – with care, consideration and respect.

More days then I want to admit, my lunch consists of leftovers picked off the plates of the munchkins.  I try to do a good breakfast every day, but my mommy energy reserves are pretty drained as we creep towards the post lunch naptime, so feeding the kids, and then diving into bed for a nap when they do is my priority.  Unless there is another grown up around helping me.  Then I get to use my creative juices to assemble a lunch that does not involve melted cheese or copious amounts of jelly.  This is what I came up with yesterday.

Quick side note – I always buy organic peppers because they are high on the dirty dozen list.  Here is a link to the complete list for your reference:

hummus-bell pepper-feta wraps


  • wrap or lavash bread (I found this great brand at my store - Joseph's - I get the Flax, Oat Bran & Whole Wheat Lavash Bread)
  • hummus
  • thinly sliced bell pepper (if the pepper has 3 bumps on bottom they are bit sweeter and better for eating raw - 4 bumps are better for cooking)
  • french feta
  • pickles
  • arugula
  • lemon
  • olive oil
  • sriracha
  • salt and pepper


  1. Spoon about 2 Tablespoons worth of hummus down the middle of the wrap.
  2. In rows lay down sliced peppers, arugula, feta and pickles.
  3. Drizzle a little olive oil and squeeze of fresh lemon - about a 1/2 of lemons worth - over arugula.
  4. Sriracha those pickles if you are feeling it.
  5. Sprinkle all of it with salt and pepper.
  6. Wrap up and devour.
