It might seem a little ridiculous to post a recipe for a sandwich, however, when I was introduced to this by a friend I was surprised at how much I loved it. The next day I couldn’t stop craving the different textures and flavour, so I went to grab the ingredients in time for lunch. My husband liked it so much, he asked for it for it to be made to take to work. Which I did, and subsequently made for myself as well.
We tried hummus made with chickpeas and with cannelini beans. We also tried different types of sprouted seeds – my favourite being the ones with peas and Mung beans. The base stayed the same. Then suddenly they ran out of sprouted beans at the grocery store. This led me to checking out the others in search of them – truly the wrap was not the same without them! When they came back in, I bought as many as the best-before-date would allow, for me to finish them all up in time.
I think, if the sprouted seeds has not become so scarce we would likely still be eating this for lunch everyday. And I am not the type of person who likes repetitive food. Honestly, the thought fills me with dread. I cannot even tolerate the three-weekly food schedule for the kids school dinners!! I need a lot of variation. Unless I find something worthy of course. This is worthy! (Of course, you could sprout your own seeds.)
It earned its name from its originator early on, in our household. Goodness knows if she realises the impact serving me a wrap over lunch has had.
- 1 Seeded wrap (Gluten free if needed)
- 1/4 cup of Hummus (chickpea or cannelini bean)
- Handful of Baby leaf lettuce
- 1-2 Tbsp Sprouted Seeds (I like the one with several types of seeds, mung beans and peas)
- 4-6 Baby tomatoes, halved
- Cheese cubes, optional
Lay your wrap down and place a handful of baby leaf lettuce in the middle. Top with a couple of heaped tablespoons of hummus. (If I am eating this right away then I will put the hummus on the bottom as I find it holds everything together. However, if it needs to last some time then I start with the lettuce to stop it making the wrap from going soggy.) Cut the tomatoes in half and lay these on top. And a handful of sprouted seeds on top and the optional cheese cubes, if using.
