Meatless Monday: Hummus and Grilled Vegetable Wrap

Meatless Monday is a global movement, a way of life. It’s not a campaign to turn everyone in the world vegetarian or vegan; in fact, many involved are meat-lovers. Eating less meat has been proven to reduce the risk of disease, curb obesity and has important environmental impacts, too. Will you join us in giving up meat, just for one day a week?

Wraps can be deceiving. They usually sound super healthy but are often stuffed with not-so-great ingredients that are usually doused with way too much sauce or dressing.That’s why I prefer to make my own.

For a quick dinner tonight and excellent lunch tomorrow, try Ellie’s hummus and grilled vegetable wrap. The tender zucchini gets matched against crisp bell peppers, toasted pine nuts and a handful of baby spinach to create a wonderful contrast of textures. It’s not fancy and doesn’t demand much thought or effort, but it’s a satisfying Monday meal that will have you feeling great and ready for the week ahead.

You can throw in just about anything, so use this recipe as a guideline. Substitute your favorite veggies (I like to use crunchy ones here), use your favorite flavored hummus, or swap in walnuts or almonds. There’s no reason to spend a bunch of extra money. This is a fabulous way to clean out your fridge.
