The other night I was cleaning out the freezer in our cellar. I found 2 little American steaks from Germany, a package of bacon with nitrates - how did that get in there?, a cervelat for grilling on field trips from last school year, a package of Nürnburger sausages and two packages of chicken.
As we are eliminating these such products from our home - more on that later - I decided to thaw out the steaks and grill 'em up for the engineer. Not really grill, more like broil. My girls usually love a random steak too so I thought they might enjoy this last one from my kitchen :)
I on the other hand was craving something light and healthy.
My creation - the random hummus wrap!
I love hummus. Maybe a little too much sometimes, perhaps?
We already had the hummus on the table with veggies and pita chips.
I took a tortilla, smeared hummus on it, then opened the fridge and added a few items to my wrap.
Random Hummus Wrap
base - tortilla wrap
sauce - hummus
chopped grape tomatoes
quinoa pilaf (or Spanish rice would be great too)
If I had not just run out of tahini the day before making the hummus I would have made a tahini sauce to drizzle all over the wrap. It was still fabulous and Miss M ended up eating some and loving it.
After I took the picture below I added a spoon full of quinoa pilaf to my wrap and wrapped it up. In case you are not a professional wrap maker or burrito wrapper or an Arizona native (this means you should know how to fold a burrito?) let me give you a hint . . . I had twice as much filling as I should have had.
It was a tad messy but oh so good.
I was eating my random hummus wrap and my family was eating steak, green beans and quinoa pilaf. Miss M said to the engineer that she could not chew through the steak because her teeth would not chew it. He only replied, "that is music to Mommy's ears."
Hummus wraps could definitely be built like a salad bar - everyone gets to choose what toppings they want - think of all the yummy possibilities.En Guete!
