Grilled Zucchini Hummus Wrap

Grilled Zucchini Wrap

I am so happy to be sharing today’s recipe with you. Actually, all of the recipes for this week make me excited. It is a full week of girl food!

That sweet Mr. Maebell ran off a couple weekends ago to do manly things with his manly friends and left me and the pups to fend for ourselves. I don’t especially like when he leaves, but to be totally honest with you I had a pretty good weekend. :)

I watched Steel Magnolias three times and bawled like a baby. I made Greek Salad, this Zucchini sandwich, sipped on smoothies, and perfected the best granola bar ever. I made sangria, gave myself a pedicure, and took a bubble bath. I made an avocado face mask, went shopping, and binged watched Gossip Girl until I couldn’t handle Blair Waldorf anymore.

I didn’t do a single load of laundry, I didn’t put away a single dish. I never ventured to the grocery. I only have clean floors because we have one of those robot vacuums and I decided it wasn’t too much effort to, ya know, just push a button. I decided it is appropriate to forgo adulthood one weekend out of the year. Turns out, weekends like that are good for your soul.

Today, I have my favorite wrap! This wrap is packed with grilled zucchini, veggies, cheese and hummus! It is my version of Jason’s Deli Zucchini Grillini, and it is great and so simple!

Sliced zucchini is tossed in olive oil and sprinkled with salt and pepper then grilled. The grilled zucchini is then placed on a nice big tortilla topped with kale,  red onion, tomatoes, cheese, and then a heaping dose of hummus.

Mercy. This is good.

One of my favorite things about this is how versatile it is. You can change up the veggies based on your personal preferences. Don’t have kale? No big deal, just throw in some spinach! Just use whatever fresh summer produce you have on hand! Just be sure not to skimp on the hummus. It is what makes the whole wrap come together so nicely. I used Sabaras Roasted Red Pepper Hummus, but you can make your own or use whatever flavor you like most.

    Sounds like you had a fabulous weekend! I like when my husband goes away every once in a while too…then I have the house to myself and I can do whatever please. And I always cry at Steel Magnolias, too! This wrap looks amazing! I’ve never tried Jason’s Deli’s version, but I’m sure this is even better. And especially with that hummus and gouda cheese…yum!

    Love this hummus wrap! I could eat hummus everyday and this wrap sounds like the perfect way to eat it! I used to work at a restaurant that served a hummus wrap and I was just thinking about how good it was the other day! Your weekend sounds amazing! I’m always a little sad when my husband leaves for the weekend, but then I always love alone time where I can do whatever I want and eat whatever I want!

    This is like my ultimate lunch wrap! Literally everything you piled into these wraps sounds drool-worthy, especially that hummus and grilled zucchini. Since I don’t want to wait to enjoy these wraps at lunchtime tomorrow, I really need someone to make it for me NOW for a midnight snack tonight! LOL. Pinned!

    Sounds like the perfect weekend! I miss my husband when he leaves to go out of town, but I sure do like being in full control of the TV and food menu! I do the same thing and watch a ton of girly movies. It’s just the best!

    These wraps sound delicious!
