Wegan Original Recipe of the Week:

Veggie Wraps with Hummus and Cilantro Sauce

Winner, winner, veggie wrap dinner.
Or lunch. Or late-night snack. Or whenever else you wanna eat, you just can’t go wrong with this taste sensation. The secret here is surprising, know what it is? Texture. Like, you already know the taste is gonna be great, we wouldn’t share it otherwise, but the texture is a mega important, but often overlooked, component of a meal.
Sometimes you get hummus that’s all runny and bordering on liquidy. The hand-mashed (use a fork, keep it classy) hummus really does change the game.
And that cilantro sauce…*chef’s kiss*…match made in heaven, they may as well be married.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup red pepper diced
  • 1/4 cup green pepper diced
  • 1/4 cup yellow pepper diced
  • ½ cup cucumber diced
  • ½ avocado sliced
  • ¼ cup radish thinly sliced
  • 4 small lettuce leaves
  • 2 wraps

For the handmade hummus

  • 1 ½ cups cooked chickpeas
  • 2 tablespoons tahini sauce
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 teaspoons lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon salt

For the cilantro sauce

  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 garlic clove peeled
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup cilantro washed well

Instructions

For the hummus

  • Place the hummus ingredients in a medium bowl. With a fork, mash them all until roughly combined, then set aside. By mashing it with a fork instead of a food processor, we try to preserve the texture of the chickpeas, so the whole combination has a more interesting bite to it.

For the cilantro sauce

  • In a food processor, blend together all ingredients from the cilantro sauce. Set aside.

For the wraps

  • Prepare all the filling ingredients for the wraps.
  • Place the tortillas on a working surface. Spread over the hummus, then top with the lettuce leaves and sliced vegetables. Season with cilantro sauce.
  • Gently fold the wrap and serve.
