Zesty Lemon Hemp Hummus and Veg Wrap

There’s something about a bit of lemon that makes savoury hummus instantly fresh. In this healthy recipe, you’re getting all the pH-balancing benefits of lemon juice (the acidic fruit is alkaline once metabolized by your body) with the wonderful plant-based protein from chickpeas and hemp hearts. Hemp is particularly high in protein, with 11g per 3 tablespoons, and contains all nine essential amino acids, making it a complete protein. Try spreading it on your favourite Organic Sprouted Power™ tortilla, add some fresh vegetables, and dig in.

Ingredients

1/4 cup hemp hearts
1 15oz can of chickpeas, rinsed and drained
2 garlic cloves, peeled
1/4 cup tahini 
2 tbsp olive oil
2 lemons, zest and juice
1 tsp Herbamare aromatic sea salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Directions

Make the hummus by blending all ingredients until desired texture is reached. Spread on your favourite Organic Sprouted Power™ tortilla—we used Spinach and Turmeric—and add fresh vegetables. We made ours with sweet peppers, tomato, microgreens, sprouts, carrot, red onion, and vegan cheese.
