Can I use something in place of the veggie pinwheels with hummus?
You can absolutely substitute something else in for the hummus if you don't have it on hand or just don't like the flavor. I'd suggest if you are looking for a homemade option you give this white bean dip a try.
It's a great substitute for hummus because it has a similar texture and the taste is a little more mild. It's really easy to make as well which makes it a nice alternative to store bought products without adding a lot of work for you!
How to make veggie pinwheels with hummus:
This is truly a simple recipe. You can easily scale it up or down to suit your needs as well. If you have kids who like to make their own lunches or snacks this is a great recipe to teach them! No cooking required and if you have all the ingredients prepped ahead of time they can toss them together even during the busiest of seasons!
Prepare your vegetables. Chop the cabbage into thin strips. Dice the red pepper. Peel and shred the carrots.
Lay out the spinach wrap on a plate or platter, and spread 2 heaping tablespoons of hummus on each of them.
Top each wrap evenly with ½ cup of shredded cabbage, ¼ of the shredded carrots, and ¼ of the diced bell pepper.
Start from one end, and roll the wrap tightly, until you meet the other end.
Set on a baking sheet, and chill for 2 hours.
Remove from the refrigerator, and cut off the end of each rolled wrap, then cut into 1-2 inch sections, discarding both of the ends, or snacking while you prepare them.
Set pinwheels flat on a platter, and gently form into a circle.
Chill until ready to serve.
