Keep reading to learn all my tips for building a homemade hummus wrap that tastes amazing and stays fresh and crunchy hours later!
Hummus Wrap with Turkey & Veggies
This Turkey and Veggie Hummus Wrap is made with fresh, crisp vegetables and creamy homemade hummus. Tuck it all in a jumbo-size wrap and you’ll have an epic healthy lunch idea that is unbelievably easy to assemble.
The double-duty protein from the turkey and hummus provides the fuel needed to get your kids through a day of school and sports or keep you full throughout a long workday.
While homemade isn’t necessary, my Greek Hummus recipe definitely takes all those fresh flavors up a notch. Homemade hummus is an affordable way to enjoy more hummus lunches and it’s surprisingly easy to make.
You can also change up this recipe by swapping out your tortilla. Swap the whole wheat wrap I used today for a burrito-size flour tortilla or for your favorite gluten-free wrap or tortilla. As long as what you’re using is large enough to hold all the ingredients, you’re good to go.
What to Put in Hummus Wraps
There’s no wrong way to make a lunch wrap. You can use the exact ingredients I did for this turkey hummus wrap, or swap a few of the ingredients for what you have on hand to really make your own wrap.
This hummus wrap includes:
- Burrito-size tortilla or wrap: whole-wheat, gluten-free, or traditional flour tortilla.
- Hummus: helps to hold up the ingredients while adding nutrition. Use your favorite.
- Greens: fresh chopped arugula or salad greens.
- Shredded carrots: crunchy and tasty!
- Deli turkey: adds protein. Use any kind of sliced deli turkey you have on hand.
You’ll find the measurements in the recipe card below.
Here’s a quick list of other ingredients you can include in your hummus wrap for added protein or bonus veggies:
- red onion
- lettuce or mixed salad greens
- sliced bell pepper
- hard-boiled eggs
- deli ham or chicken
- sliced or shredded cheese

I love making hummus wraps because they’re so easy! It’s a fill lunch idea you can pull together in less than five minutes.
Here’s how to make a hummus wrap:
Spread the hummus over the tortilla, top with the arugula first, then carrots and turkey meat.

How to Meal Prep Hummus Wraps
You can certainly prep this hummus wrap the night before and have it ready to grab the next morning. However, you’ll want to skip adding wet veggies like tomatoes, cucumber, and pickles since they give off excess moisture and make the wrap soggy.
Here’s how to make wraps ahead, so they stay fresh and intact:
- Prepare the hummus wrap using the directions above.
- Fold and roll tightly before slicing in half and wrapping with a moist paper towel (this helps everything hold together and prevents sogginess).
- Pack into lunch containers and refrigerate overnight.

How to Pack Healthy Hummus Wraps for Lunch
A perfect hummus wrap for lunch is possible if you follow these tips:
Separate wet from dry ingredients
Just like a sandwich, wraps should be kept away from any wet ingredients like fruit or sauce and packed in a sturdy container to prevent them from getting smashed.
Use a compartmentalized container
Having compartmentalized lunch containers comes in handy for that reason and allows me to pack additional items like fruit or a couple of oatmeal no-bake bites in one container.
Prevent tortilla from getting soggy
If you’re making a gluten-free wrap, pack a moist paper towel on top of your wrap inside the lunchbox. Gluten-Free tortillas tend to dry out quicker than traditional flour tortillas and this will help your GF tortilla stay fresh until you’re ready to eat your wrap.
