Hummus and baked sweet potato add heft along with luscious texture to these vegan veggie roll-ups. You can also skip slicing and enjoy them as wraps. 

Note that this recipe calls for baked sweet potato. One of our favorite healthy-eating hacks is to bake a few potatoes or sweet potatoes at once and stash them in the fridge (wrapped individually in cling wrap) to use throughout the week. 

Sliced veggie roll-ups shown from the top down, stuffed with spinach, sweet potato, hummus, and roasted red bell pepper

Ingredients

  • ⅔ cup oil-free hummus
  • ¼ cup sliced scallions (green onions)
  • 4 6-inch whole wheat tortillas
  • 1½ cups fresh baby spinach
  • 1 cup chopped baked sweet potato (no skin)
  • ¼ cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower kernels, toasted

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl stir together hummus and scallions. Spread over tortillas. Top with spinach, sweet potato, bell pepper, and sunflower kernels; gently press into the hummus.
  2. Roll up tortillas and wrap individually using plastic wrap or reusable wrapper. Refrigerate at least 1 hour. Slice rolls into 1-inch pieces.

I’ve never liked sweet potatoes much, but I want the nutrients they have. I’ve eaten and really enjoyed yam tempura sushi, but tempura is deep fried food. Delicious, but not healthy. So, I had the thought to make savory dishes with sweet potato, and see if I like them that way. Enter the Forks Over Knives Sweet Potato Veggie Roll-Ups. They have hummus, sweet potato, sweet peppers and spinach, and they’re really good!! First attempt is officially a success!!

Silly question- how is everyone preparing the sweet potato for this?

Baked until still firm or steamed only until fork goes thru but still firm.
Hope that helps.

Delicious. I used red lentil tortillas – red lentils, water, dried herbs of choice – and freeze them. I cook them in a non-stick pan.

Great! My husband and I both loved these! The hummus, scallions and sweet potato taste so good together. Doesn’t take much time to put together and cutting them up into pieces makes it so much easier and neater to eat. I don’t usually like raw peppers but it only adds a nice crunch, along with the toasted seeds.

Used rice wraps and was absolutely delicious. Then it was rolled and cut into pieces like sushi rolls.

Is there a gluten free adaptation to this recipe?

I have Celiac Disease so this was adapted. Rice Wraps were used instead of tortillas. It was rolled and cut in portions like sushi. It was delicious!

In the FOK app, this recipe makes 24 pieces. Nice! And it makes it easy to track the nutritional information based on that proportion. Thank you!

Where do you find whole wheat tortillas that are oil-free? Stacy’s whole wheat tortillas contain 3cc of sunflower oil per tortilla. That seems like a lot to me.

Nutritional details for all of the recipes on this site can be found on the FOK app (Forks Plant-Based Recipes). Best $5 you’ll ever spend.

Absolutely love this recipe. If you stick to the amounts it says the flavors blend in so nicely together that you don’t taste anything specific. If you really like an ingredient just put a little more than what it says. I have been recommending this to everyone I know.

Just wondering, why do you say no skin on the sweet potato? Is this just a personal preference? I’ve always left mine on because I thought this added more nutritional value, so I’m curious why you instructed to remove. Maybe you know something I don’t . Thank you for the recipe, going to try it this week!

I leave the skin on. It’s your choice. The recipe probably looks prettier for pics with the skin off.

Please, please, can you tell me what is one serving/or meal amount?
This is my only complaint about FOK recipes. Recipe sounds great but I would probably over eat without someone telling me correct amount. Thanks

One serving/meal amount is *as much as it takes you to feel satisfied*. I would recommend taking a tour around the FOK site; you will understand that this way of eating is about gaining nutrition/health, not “portion control for weight loss,” as that direction never works. The more nutrients your body absorbs, the easier the excess pounds will melt off, naturally. Eat healthfully in abundance!

Why did you only give it 4 stars though? You can’t dock a star if you don’t state why.

That’s the beauty of eating this way. You can eat as much as you need to feel satisfied. “Diets” don’t work because people feel deprived. This WOE is built for the long term.

Haven’t tried it yet, but it sounds easily doable. Just gotta figure out where to find an oil-free brand of hummus.

I found one in my local market, they used the aqua fab from the can of chickpeas in lieu of oil ; )

Oil free hummus is easy to make if you have a small food processor or blender. Drain a can of garbanzo beans (chick peas) and put in the food processor. Add some lemon juice and garlic and blend until smooth. Use amounts to your taste.

People who have concern for the environment are now being attacked? How ridiculous- instead of focusing on the accurate point made.

Is there a brand of tortilla that is recommended? We are limited here and can only find the Mission brand which has lots of ingredients. Lots!

Ezekiel brand has the best ingredients that I’ve found. They sell them at Sprouts and Trader Joe’s and many other stores. Ezekiel also makes great pita bread, English muffins and cereal. Check them out!

Maybe look for a recipe online and make the tortillas from scratch. I did that many years ago. 🙂

The recipe looks great. But cling wrap? That seems wasteful, and creates more plastic in the landfill. Why not just re-use one or more plastic bags – for example, the bag that the tortillas came in?

Go ahead and re-use a plastic bag! Why so critical?

Joanne has a valid point and you could have responded with a new outlook and be open to her suggestion. We all live together on this planet. Every little effort goes a long way into our children’s future. The recipe, of course, is appreciated. This is merely the next step in awareness.
