Grilled Vegetable Hummus Wrap

1 Mar

IMG_9229

This recipe came about after a dear friend and I had horrible grilled vegetable hummus wraps. Actually, I should say alleged grilled vegetable hummus wraps. Our wraps were composed of previously frozen carrots and broccoli and maybe a tablespoon of hummus. We were so disappointed that I decided to take matters into my own hands and make my own! I grilled some vegetables, whipped up some hummus and voila, everything for real grilled vegetable hummus wraps!

Let’s talk a little about nutritional yeast. If you’re not already a vegetarian or vegan then this ingredient may seem a little, well weird. For non-meat eaters, nutritional yeast is an excellent source of the vitamin B-12. Since B-12 is primarily only found in meat, we need to find alternative sources of this very important vitamin. So, it’s nutritional yeast to the rescue! The flavor of nutritional yeast is not at all like the taste of common bread yeast. It has a very creamy texture and a cheesy flavor. It’s really is quite delicious.

Ingredients
1 Ezekiel 4:9 Tortilla
Mix of grilled vegetables (red peppers, zucchini, red onions and carrots)
2 tbsp hummus
1/8 cup sprouts
1/2 avocado
1 tbsp nutritional yeast

Directions

  1. Spread the hummus onto the tortilla
  2. Add vegetables, avocado, sprouts and nutritional yeast
  3. Enjoy!

These burgers are one of our favorites. I think Michael would eat the mayo on its own! I can’t blame him, it really is that delicious.
