An Ode to Simplicity, Part 2

No surprise here – I’ve got another SUPER simple, but delicious meal to share.

This one is for lunch. Like many people, I try to switch up my lunches at work so I always look forward to it. I’m a first grade teacher so it’s important to have a satisfying meal to reboot me for the afternoon. And summer is the perfect opportunity to try out some different ideas.

You could call this a hummus wrap, but I’ll call it…

The Hummus Taco

Now, the most important part of this is the hummus. I am completely obsessed with roots hummus. Firstly because it is creamy and delicious, but secondly because it’s made right near me! I think that’s pretty neat.

Keep in mind that this recipe, like any other I post, is open to interpretation. If you’d like to switch out the bean sprouts with lettuce or use sautéed chickpeas instead of hummus, do it! I know my best cooking stems from an idea that I slowly turn into my own creation.

Here’s what I used:

  • Hummus (of your choice)
  • Small tortilla
  • 1/4 of an avocado
  • Small handful of bean sprouts
  • Olive oil
  • Salt + Pepper



1. Spread on hummus and drizzle with olive oil. I also added a bit of pepper.


2. Slice avocado in the shell and scoop out with a spoon. Generously sprinkle with salt. Trust me.


3. Add a small handful of bean sprouts.


4. Eat up! I usually have a couple of these for lunch with some fruit. Or one of these is perfect for a pick-me-up at work.


That’s it! Let me know if you try this. What kind of fun recipes do you like to bring to work?
