Hummus Wraps

I am a big fan of any types of wraps. It's fast, easy and yummy.
I have been dying to try this recipe since i came across it first on Lizzy's blog. She always comes up with yummy recipe posts and each and every post i come across i feel like trying on my own.
You can check her blog HERE.

I finally tried his recipe some time back but busy schedule allowed me to post it only now. But i think it's a good time as it is summer approaching and also i can send it to Preeti's Green Gourmet event and Priya's Avocado event !


Ok so let's get started. :)

Let's collect Ingredients:

3-4 corn tortillas (
2 medium sized ripe avocados
1 cup dates, sliced
10 oz (300g) mixed salad greens
Italian salad dressing
15 oz (425g) canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1½ T. tahini paste
1 T. lemon juice
6 T. olive oil
½ cup roasted red bell pepper
1-2 small cloves garlic
½ tsp cumin powder
dash of cayenne pepper
2-3 pinches crushed red pepper flakes
salt and pepper, to taste

Let's start preparing:

1. Toss the greens in Italian dressing. If you prefer your lettuce very crisp, do this step last.

2. Blend the chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, roasted red bell pepper, garlic and seasonings in a blender for Hummus until smooth and creamy.



3. Mash the avocados with salt and pepper to taste.


4. Microwave the tortillas to soften. Lay them out on a flat surface. First spread the hummus on it and on the top of that, spread the avocado puree.


5. Next spread some sliced dates.


6. Then some salad.


7. Roll up and cut in half on the diagonal. Your wraps ready. Easy, isn't it? Enjoy :)



And i send this post to....

Lopa,
This is worth trying - definitely! And like you say, ideal for summer days... very healthy.
Where do you buy tahini? In a delicatessen shop or in the supermarket? We used to have a very nice shop in the neighbourhood selling tapas, and ingredients like tahini, etc., but they closed! :( So I just have two big supermarkets close by.
Thanks for the recipe!!
