Wrap-it-up like your Momma told ya with the Hummus-Caesar Spinach Wrap!

Raw-vegan Caesar Hummus Spinach Wrap

Good afternoon fellow earthlings,

 

I had a little bit of a late start to my day today and I woke up extremely hungry since I’m coming off of a four day juice cleanse which is why I haven’t posted in a little bit. I felt the fear inside of me that I might over indulge after coming off of the cleanse, and I knew I needed to make a raw-vegan dish quickly or I would soon mess everything up! I figured that a nice spinach wrap would fill me up without sending me off the raw-vegan wagon, but what would go nicely together in the wrap? Well, luckily for you, I’ve been taking a specialty class at famous raw chef Matthew Kenney’s Culinary School in Miami Florida called Culinary Nutrition and I’ve learned a thing of two about food combining to make digestion and absorption of nutrients easier. Avocado pairs well with leafy greens such as arugula making this wrap easily digested even for the most sensitive so I used both as the core of this wrap!

Ingredients:

1 spinach wrap (wrap-itz)

1 cup of arugula

2 Tbsp. Hummus

2 Tbsp. dried cranberries

1 slice tomato (diced)

1/2 of an avocado (diced)

2 Tbsp. Vegan Caesar Salad Dressing (follow your heart)

 

Step 1: So first we’re going to start off with the spinach wrap. My personal favorite taste-wise can be found at Publix and it is called Wrap-itz Savory Spinach see picture of the product below.

Step 2: Next, I spread about two Tbsp. or one spoonful of store-bought hummus on top of the spinach wrap. You can use whichever brand or flavor you prefer, I just used a plain so that the flavor of the Caesar dressing is more prevalent.

Step 3: I spread about one handful (1 cup) of arugula that I pre-washed in cool water on top of the hummus. Tip: Do not wash your fruits or veggies in hot water otherwise you will kill some of the nutritional quality before eating.

Step 4: Sprinkle about two Tbsp’s of one spoonful of dried cranberries on top of the arugula. Any dried fruit will do but the cranberries go well with this dish.

Step 5: Chop up one tomato slice and sprinkle it on top of the arugula mixture.

Step 6: Slice one half of an avocado and sprinkle it on top of the arugula mixture.

Step 7: lightly drizzle about two Tbsp’s of Vegan Caesar Salad Dressing (follow your heart) on top of the salad mixture. This brand might not be available at your local Publix so check out whole foods. Salad dressing pictured below:

Step 8: Wrap-it up! Go ahead and wrap the wrap and you’re good to go! If you want to create a mini side salad like I did then put about a 1/2 a cup of arugula with some diced tomato’s and avocado on top. Then lightly sprinkle some avocado oil or olive oil on top of the salad and BOOM! Whomp there it is!!

      Hey Dana!

      That’s great! The Vegan Caesar Salad dressing is at Whole foods in a fridge with some other vegan goodies. If you’re located closer to a Fresh Market they might carry it as well. If you can’t find it, go ahead and use a balsamic dressing because most balsamic brands are vegan naturally. I hope this helps! 🙂

        That helps a great deal! I am not meat eater and this happened after a surgery I had..strange I know but something happened in my body and everything changed. I am struggling with going all vegan or I just don’t know. I eat more salads with balsamic dressing then anything and I eat a lot of soups. I have been researching the difference between Vegan, Vegetarian and all the different kinds of things a person can be when they do not eat meat LOL…I am on of those strange people because there are still things I eat that wouldn’t classify my all “all vegan”
