Mixed Veggie & Houmous Wrap

Any crunchy vegetables you have on hand will work in this wrap. Cauliflower, bell pepper, and cucumber would all be yummy additions.

Serves 4


  • 1 carrot
  • 1 celery stalk
  • 90g (3.1oz) broccoli florets
  • 280g (10oz) container plain houmous
  • 4 individual pitas, or 2 large round pitas, halved
  • Optional toppings: Lettuce, sliced tomato, sliced avocado, sliced vegan cheese of choice


  1. Prepare the veggies. Peel the carrot, then chop the carrot and celery into about 1-inch pieces. Put the carrot, celery, and broccoli in a food processor. Pulse for 6 to 8 seconds, or until the vegetables are in very small pieces
  2. Mix the spread and build the wraps. Transfer the vegetable pieces to a medium mixing bowl. Stir in the houmous. Spoon one-fourth of the mixture into each pita and add any desired toppings

Vegan Life tip

Take this wrap up a notch by using a flavoured or spicy houmous. Grocery stores carry a wide variety of flavours, many of which would go well with fresh, crisp veggies.
