Hummus Veggie Wraps


Hummus Veggies Wraps

This recipe is delicious!  I saw this recipe on Facebook and just had to make it.  It's so yummy and crunchy... and it's perfect for hot summer weather.  The recipe is basically hummus made with garbanzo beans, olive oil, salt, and PEANUT BUTTER.  The trio of veggies makes for great flavor and texture.  I tried to make my hummus with a little less olive oil; my hummus was a little crumbly but it tastes just fine. It's just a little difficult to spread the crumbly hummus evenly all over the tortilla.  The recipe recommends that you rollup the tortilla like a cigar and then slice the cigar shaped wrap into pinwheels. This is very pretty but I found it's much easier to just eat this like a wrap or a burrito. Don't bother slicing into pinwheels. They just don't hold together very well.  

I think this idea would also work really well with smashed up avocado in place of the hummus.  You can use other veggies as well. This is a meatless dish, but I think it would be good with chopped up hard boiled egg or maybe chopped up cooked shrimp.  The possibilities are endless.  

Hummus for Veggie Wraps

1 can (16 oz.) garbonzo beans/chickpeas (rinsed and drained)
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (I used 2 tablespoons oil and 1 tablespoon water)
1 teaspoon natural peanut butter

In a food processor, combine the beans, salt, oil, and peanut butter. Pulse until creamy.

Spread a few tablespoons of the hummus on a tortilla.  Layer veggies (cucumbers, carrots, red bell peppers slices) over hummus and then roll up cigar style.  If desired, slice into pinwheels or enjoy as a wrap.
