Ingredients

  • FOR THE CHIPOTLE HUMMUS:
  • 3 cups cooked chickpeas rinsed well if canned
  • ½ cup tahini paste
  • 2 garlic cloves smashed and peeled
  • juice of 1 lemon about 4 Tbsp
  • 1-2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • ½ - 1 tsp salt
  • ½ cup cold water
  • FOR THE WRAPS:
  • 6 large whole wheat tortillas
  • chipotle hummus
  • 3 cups cooked quinoa
  • 6 cups mixed greens rinsed and dried
  • 3 large carrots grated

Instructions

  1. TO MAKE THE HUMMUS:
  2. Place chickpeas, tahini, garlic cloves, lemon juice, chipotle pepper(s) and ½ tsp of salt into the bowl of a food processor.
  3. Pulse a few times to combine, then run the processor while adding water, one Tbsp at a time, until the hummus reaches a desired consistency.
  4. You may need to stop the processor and scrape the sides from time to time.
  5. Taste the hummus, and add a bit more salt if needed, and an extra chipotle pepper (or just a spoonful of adobo sauce) if you’d like more heat. Remember that the flavours tend to develop over time, so tread carefully.
  6. TO MAKE THE WRAPS:
  7. Spread a whole wheat tortilla with chipotle hummus. You want to spread a generous layer, but don’t go right to the edge or it’ll get messy when you start rolling.
  8. Next add ½ cup of quinoa, a large handful of mixed greens (about 1 cup) and a small handful of shredded carrot.
  9. Now you’re ready to roll! Carefully fold the sides in, and then fold one end over the other, pull back to roll the contents into a log, and finish rolling your wrap.
  10. Wrap tightly with foil, and store in the fridge for up to 4 days.

Recipe Notes

This recipe makes more hummus than you'll need for the wraps. Store the extras in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
Start the hummus with just one chipotle pepper and go from there. Remember the flavours tend to bloom with time, so if you don't like a lot of heat, tread carefully.
Don't feel like making wraps? Layer the greens, quinoa, carrots, and hummus into a bowl and serve with the tortilla on the side.
