Edamame Hummus Wrap
The edamame in this hummus gives it an extra special flavor.
- Edamame usually comes frozen. Steam or boil the shelled edamame until it is easy to
bite. This takes about 10 minutes. You can put the frozen edamame right into a
steaming basket or boiling water.
- Remove the steamed or boiled edamame and run under cold water in a colander. Then
allow it to cool down for another 10 minutes.
- Place the edamame, tahini, lemon juice, water, garlic, cumin and salt in a food
- Pulse the ingredients to your desired consistency.
- Place tortilla on a non-stick pan and heat it up for about 2 minutes, flipping it from side to
- This makes the tortilla, especially the sprouted grain versions, a little less tough.
- Allow the tortilla to cool.
- To get a good roll up, and to ensure the ingredients are evenly distributed and tightly
enclosed, place the items, not in the middle of the tortilla, but closer to one edge, leaving
a small rim.
- Place the spinach first. This will give additional support to the edamame hummus.
- Place ½ cup of edamame hummus on top of spinach.
- Place the cucumber, bell peppers and red onion on top of edamame hummus layer.
- Sprinkle the red chili flakes on top of vegetable layer.
- Roll it up, cut it in half and serve.
