Protein-Packed Hummus Wraps

Hello there, Beautiful People! 
 

Who's in the mood for a plant-based-protein-packed wrap? Say that five times fast.

Wraps are quick, easy, and can be super healthy. This recipe calls for homemade hummus which is actually easy and more cost-effective than store-bought hummus. 

Give your digestive tract and arteries a break, and substitute an animal protein-based meal with the following recipe. It's packed with heart-healthy plant-based protein from the garbanzo beans. And, if you use a Sprouted Grain wrap such as, Ezekiel, you up the plant-protein, fiber and B-Vitamins even more!

This can certainly fit into any weight loss regimen as one of your main meals. 


Serves: 2

Ingredients

  • 1 non-BPA-lined can of Garbanzo Beans

  • 2 Garlic gloves finely chopped/mashed

  • 2/3 cup of roasted Tahini

  • 2 Tomatoes

  • 1 Cucumber

  • 1/2 medium lemon (squeezed)

  • 1/3 medium red onion

  • 6-8 basil leaves, sliced

  • 4 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil

  • 1/2 teaspoon of iodized sea salt, to taste

  • 1/2 teaspoon of freshly ground pepper, to taste

  • 1 tablespoon of ground Cumin, to taste (I add lots of this special spice)

  • Wrap: Choose a high-fiber, whole wheat wrap. If you can get your hands on a Sprouted Grain wrap, such as Ezikiel- even better!

  • Optional: Sprinkle of shredded Plant-Based Cheese (They are not all healthy - I recommend the brand, "Parmela Creamery")


Directions  

Hummus
Give garbanzo beans a quick wash with water in a strainer. In a food processor, blend: garbanzo beans, garlic, tahini, lemon juice, basil leaves, water, onion, olive oil and cumin. Process until nice and smooth.

Add salt and pepper, to taste.  If you prefer a little kick, add a dash of Cayenne pepper. Then, process once more. 

Put your wrap on a plate. Add 3-4 tablespoons of fresh hummus onto the wrap. Sprinkle with chopped tomatoes, cucumbers and Plant-Based Cheese. 

Voila! Eat to your hearts' content.


Tip: If you are in a real time crunch, you can substitute the homemade hummus with a healthy, preservative free store-bought hummus. But, that's only if you're really time-restricted!


 

Until next time...
