Rainbow Chard Hummus Wraps

Jump to Recipe

Say hello to rainbow chard appearance number TWO. The first time sweet, this time savory. I don’t know which I’m more excited about. Think I’ll have to eat both.

Rainbow chard is so beautiful I could just stare at it all day. I mean look at those color contrasts and the hot pink vein! Get outta here. One of nature’s most perfect works of art, for sure.

But eventually I want to eat it. Contrary to what some may think it’s not bitter at all. Quite the opposite actually – tender, sweet and mild – making it the perfect vessel for creamy garlicky hummus (and peanut butter, banana + basil).

I used my favorite hummus but if you’re short on time or just prefer store bought, go ahead! I’m all about saving time and hassle. I just make a batch of my own every couple weeks to have on hand for snacks and quick lunches.

This concept is so simple and customizable. Simply smear your favorite spread onto the chard and top with tons of veggies. I kept mine simple with cucumber, tomato and onion, but you could also easily add herbs, a grainy mustard or even fruit.

This wrap makes the perfect bite to take on the go, such as for work lunches, picnics or beach outings. I suspect they’d taste better on the beach than in an office cubicle, but it’s just a hunch. Food tastes better in nature if you ask me.

    Great idea I forgot about. Perfect timing. I have some Swiss chard, cucumber, onions and tomatoes ready to harvest in my yard..oh and little hot red peppers too.

    I didn’t know you could eat swiss chard raw. I always cook mine. It has a very strong taste which is why I always cook it.

  3. Nadia Rehmansays

    These are soo good! I made mine simple, with cucumber, hummus and sundried tomato. My leaves were a bit small, so I just made five tiny wraps which was just fine with me!

      We’re so glad you enjoyed them, Nadia! Thanks so much for sharing!

    My Swiss chard leaves were extra large and stiff and tended to crack open when I tried this. I remembered that grape leaves are parboiled for grape leaf rolls, so I put the chard leaf in the microwave on a plate for 10 seconds. Problem solved. It made a collard leaf work as well. I’m so happy to have wraps back in my life! Definitely going to try your falafel in a collard wrap.

    This recipe looks really great !!!!!!!!! Excellent choice Dana, it is perfect to use with red beans and celery seed. My friends will love it.

    This recipe sounds great – I’m definitely going to make it for lunch during the school year. Even better, I think your “Better Than Restaurant Falafels” would go in great as a filling!

  7. Valeriesays

    WOW! These look amazing!! I love the idea os using swiss chard as a wrap, as opposed to lettuce. My dinner dilema is now solved!

    I LOVE your idea to use swiss chard as a wrap! I love the idea of wraps, but don’t love the taste of the actual wrap part, so this is the perfect solution! Also, I actually wrote a blog entry of my own on the beautiful colors of swiss chard, please feel free to read it!

    hope you enjoy! God bless!

      How can I find your blog. I would love to read how you overcame the strong taste of the chard for this recipe.

    This look wonderful…I am making it this weekend. Thanks for the idea.

  10. Eileensays

    Oh yes! I love chard and definitely want to eat a lot more of it raw now that it’s warm out. These wraps sound like the perfect fast vegetable-filled lunch!

  11. Katrina @ Warm Vanilla Sugarsays

    I’m SUPER into these! We make a similar recipe at home and love them! Yum!

  12. Tieghan Gerardsays

    Looks so pretty and I love making wraps using lettuce, but I think I need to try chard. Your wrap looks delicious!
