Hummus Wraps

This great kid-friendly wrap was born when i was asked to teach 5-year-olds about healthy snacks. The kids got totally into the making of the wraps and then chowed down gleefully on their handiwork.

2-3 fresh garlic cloves, minced
2 cups cooked or canned chickpeas
grated zest and juice of 1 fresh lemon
1/3 cup sesame tahini
1 teaspoon cumin (optional)
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 -1 teaspoon sea salt
2-3 sprigs parsley, finely minced
whole wheat soft tortillas or pita halves
romaine lettuce leaves
alfalfa sprouts
sliced tomatoes

Combine all ingredients for hummus in a food processor, adjusting salt to your taste.

Puree until smooth, adding water or olive oil if the mixture seems to thick for your taste.

To assemble the wraps, lay a soft tortilla on a dry work surface, lay lettuce, sprouts and tomato slices. Spoon hummus generously over top, roll, jellyroll style, securing with a toothpick.

Slice in half crosswise to serve. 
Note: You can use store-bought hummus to save time and work.

Makes 4-5 half wraps.
