Hummus and salad wraps



Hummus and salad wraps
Hummus is a healthy alternative to butter or margarine and combines together perfectly with flat bread, salad and cheese to make this tasty wrap.

2 heaped tablespoons store-bought hummus (or homemade)
2 whole grain flat breads (such as lavash or pocketless pita bread)
¼ cup grated cheese
1 cup shredded lettuce
1 small carrot—grated
1 tomato—chopped
1 scallion (spring onion)—thinly sliced
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to season

SPREAD equal amounts of hummus in a horizontal line down the middle of each flat bread. ARRANGE the cheese, lettuce, carrot, tomato and scallion on top of the hummus. SEASON with salt and pepper, roll up and cut each wrap in half to serve.

Variations: Wrap other salad vegetables in the hummus-spread flat breads—onion, radish, red and green peppers, avocado and sprouts (such as alfalfa or snow pea) are all tasty additions.

  Greek Salad Pita Pockets. Pita bread spread with hummus and filled with all the ingredients of a classic Greek salad including tomatoes, peppers, olives and feta cheese.

  Hummus. A creamy and flavorsome blend of chickpeas, tahini (sesame seed paste), garlic and lemon juice.
