Chicken Wraps with Minty Pea Hummus

Serves 4.


    Chicken Wraps with Minty Pea Hummus

    A spread of vibrant pea hummus adds an extra layer of nuance to these lunch wraps—a great way to breathe new life into your sandwich routine. If desired, sorrel or basil can replace the mint in the hummus. And if you want to go plant only, slices of smoked/baked tofu are a good stand-in for chicken. Go ahead and use leftovers of the hummus as a dip or a spread for other sandwiches.


    Nutrition bonus

    Green peas contain more plant-based protein than most people would think—about 8 g in each cup (250 mL).

    Bowled over

    You can go bread-free by turning this into a lively lunch bowl. Place some lettuce greens in a bowl and top with cooked grains such as spelt or quinoa, then chicken, carrot, and roasted red pepper. Whisk together some hummus, with additional olive oil and lemon juice to thin, and drizzle over contents of bowl. Top with microgreens or pea shoots.
