Nutrient Booster: Chickpeas + Grain Free Tortillas
We love how nutritious these wraps are, especially because they are so delicious and easy to prepare! In addition to protein and fiber, the chickpeas used in hummus provide a great source of folate, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, copper, and manganese. Studies show that supplementing a diet with chickpeas can lower overall cholesterol levels due to the small amount of polyunsaturated fatty acids present in these beans. Go ahead and spread the health benefits (and big flavors!) found in hummus offers–it’s a great way to enhance your daily diet and make your food taste delicious!
Grain Free Tortillas not only taste great but are also filled with healthy ingredients. Siete Foods Almond Flour Tortillas contain almond flour, tapioca flour, water, sea salt and xanthan gum; that’s it! They’re gluten-free, paleo, dairy-free, non-gmo, soy free and vegan. We love to use these for tacos, enchiladas, wraps and more! Find our more information about these tortillas and where you can purchase them on the Siete Foods website!

Hummus Vegetable Wrap
- 2 grain-free tortillas, or tortilla of your choice
- 2/3 cup hummus
- 1/2 cup seedless, grated cucumber
- 1/2 cup grated carrots
- 2 red leaf or romaine lettuce leaves
Heat the tortilla in a warm skillet. Place the tortilla down and heat it for about thirty to forty seconds on each side, until it has a darker color and a nutty aroma.
To assemble: Place tortillas on a flat surface. Evenly spread 1/3 cup of hummus onto each tortilla, and sprinkle 1/4 cup grated cucumber and 1/4 cup carrots on top. Add the lettuce leaves, roll up, slice on a diagonal and serve.
If cucumbers seem watery place them in a paper towel and roll up the cucumbers in the paper towel to remove excess water.
