It could pass as sushi!

Hey guys- Happy April! Obviously, I am a little behind on the posts for April...but man it started with a bang and kept on running! I thought I would share a quick, SIMPLE, healthy recipe that I did for a cooking demo last week at work; I did this demo to round out the end of March aka National Nutrition Month. The theme this year was eating right with color. This is a simple way to add a ton of color in the way of vegetables to your lunch or the next party you attend...

It's a Veggie and Hummus Pinwheel that could pass as sushi!
Quite impressive...right?
Perfect for a lunch box or as an appetizer at a cocktail party!

Veggie and Hummus Pinwheels

Serves 4
Ingredients:
4 Tbsp hummus
1/8 C. Tomato
2 spinach or tomato tortilla
1/8 C. Red onion
¼ yellow pepper
1/8 C. Spinach
¼ of a cucumber
2 Tbsp Garlic-basil cream cheese

Directions:
1. Spread cream cheese out on tortilla and then spread layer of hummus over cream cheese.
2. Chop all vegetables and lay flat covering all hummus.
3. Roll tortillas up jellyroll style. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours.
4. Remove from refrigerator and slice at ¾ inch intervals. Arrange on tray and serve.

  3. It's really just so simple; you can eye-ball the veggies. I made the cream cheese but store-bought or plain are just as tasty! Enjoy and be sure to let me know what you think!
