Ingredients

  • 1 whole wheat tortilla (fajita size)
  • ¼ cup hummus
  • 1-2 slices cheddar cheese (optional)
  • ¼ cup vegetables (thinly sliced, such as bell pepper, lettuce, or carrot; optional)

Instructions

  • Place the tortilla on a clean work surface or cutting board. If it's not at room temperature, warm it on a heat-safe plate in the microwave for 10 seconds.
  • Spread on the hummus to about ¼-inch away from the outer edge.
  • Add the cheese and veggies, if using, layered on one side.
  • Working from the side of the tortilla with the fillings, tightly roll it up. Slice it in half or into rounds using a serrated knife.

Notes

  • This is best made on the day you plan to serve it. Keep cool in a lunchbox with an ice pack or in the fridge as needed.
  • Use homemade hummus or store-bought.
  • Do your best with portions and include a mix of food groups to help the kids stay full until their next chance to eat.
  • Pack the food in a lunchbox in an insulated bag with an ice pack to keep it safe and cool until lunchtime.
  • Add milk or a water bottle as needed.
  • Adjust any of these for allergies and include Peanut-Free Snacks as needed.
