This recipe is a true impact of International Hummus Day, which we celebrated two days ago and you might have some hummus left, so a good idea for finishing it can be highly appreciated. In fact, this is my favourite takeaway meal, which usually takes only 20 min to cook.
The recipe includes only a few basic ingredients and you have a huge field for various editions. You just need buckwheat groats for flatbread; hummus, vegetables and quinoa for filling.
I like to cook buckwheat flatbread adding garlic, sometimes turmeric and chilli pepper to the dough, as well as spinach suits it well and gives the dish amazing green colour. Especially, spinach is an excellent ingredient for valuable nutrition and happy summer colour of the flatbread.
Hummus also gives a variety of tastes and colours to the dish in addition to vegetable colours and variations. I like to use beetroot, sun-dried tomato, spirulina or edamame hummus. These are my favourites.
So actually, every hummus wrap that I cook is completely different and that’s what I really like about this dish and it never gets boring. You can see how different results I get on the pictures.
There are also various ways of serving hummus wrap. If you are cooking for takeaway, so it’s very convenient to roll it up in foil. But if you are up to serve it as a snack for many people, just put less filling and roll it up more tight and thin, and cut it into pieces.

! Use pan with diameter D~25 cm for cooking flatbread
- Grind buckwheat groats in a food processor to make the flour, in case you do not have green buckwheat flour at home. Place flour in a bowl, add spices and water and whisk all together until you reach homogenous consistency. Give it a time to rest for a few minutes before to bake the flatbread.
- Grease the baking pan with 1 tsp of oil and cover it with thin layer of the dough to make the flatbread as think as a pancake. Cook it both sides about 30 seconds or up to 1 minute each side.
- Prepare all ingredients for filling: grate the carrot, cut the celery, paprika and cucumber in narrow pieces, boil quinoa and prepare hummus if you don’t use pre-cooked one.
- Spread hummus over the flatbread, then put over salad leaves, veggies and quinoa.
- Roll it in the baking paper or foil in order to keep the shape, this also will make your eating more comfortable.
