Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

  • Can I make these wraps in advance? Yes, you can prepare them a few hours in advance. Wrap them tightly in cling film and refrigerate.
  • What other spreads can I use besides hummus? Try cream cheese, pesto, or a yogurt-based spread for variety.
  • How can I make these wraps vegan? They are already vegan-friendly! Just ensure the tortillas and spreads you use are vegan.
  • What is the best way to keep the wraps from getting soggy? Avoid using very wet ingredients or dressings, and if preparing in advance, keep the more moist ingredients like cucumbers and tomatoes in the middle, surrounded by drier ingredients.
