Anyone else having a hard time with lunch ideas? I'm always looking for fast and easy nutritious mid day meals. Sometimes peanut butter and jelly sandwiches just doesn't make the cut anymore. I love adding this Avocado Hummus Roll Ups recipe to the rounds to change it up a bit. I couple it with some dairy free yogurt and it's a huge hit!
A word on picky eaters. Just like many adults, at least me anyway, I get bored of eating the same foods everyday. Making it a different shape or size brings a new dynamic to a meal. These look like sushi rolls and are so fun to eat! They're perfect little bite size sandwiches. These Avocado Hummus Roll ups are also vegan and vegetarian for folks on a specific diet.
Also, hummus is best tasting in room temperature, so I've packed these on road trips before. It is however, a perishable item so I'd pack an ice pack in your kids lunch to be safe. You can also spritz a little lemon to prevent browning if your kids care about the change in color.
Avocados have more than 20 vitamins and minerals .On a recent trip to the farm, I learned a fun fact. Anything with a seed is a fruit, at least from the botanical standpoint. So essentially an avocado is a fruit. Would you believe that beans, corn, bell peppers, and eggplants are all fruits? So even nuts are fruits. Grains, which are really just oversized seeds, are also fruits. Anyway, I thought that was a fun fact!
Avocado Hummus Roll Ups
- 1 Avocado thinly sliced
- 4 slices Bread
- 4 tbsp Hummus
- Using a rolling pin or glass, flatten bread completely
- Remove crusts if deisred
- Spread hummus on bread making sure to add on ends for easy sealing

Another fun fact: Did you know this is all paper and takes about 1,000 photos to create?
