carrot and hummus roll ups

These carrot and hummus wraps are great for if you are looking for something new and healthy to make for lunch and are extremely filling.

We made ours with homemade hummus, which only takes around 5 minutes to make and you can also try experimenting with adding different flavours, like chopped jalapenos, curry powder and red peppers. Adding some pepper or falafel is also another combination you can try out.
