It's a Wrap!!!

Tomorrow, I finish my ethics course. It's been interesting, concerning, and enlightening. I hope that I will be able to put into practice what I've learned and the things I'm convicted of. With spring on the horizon, here is a light and healthy lunch that my mom and I enjoyed over Christmas. It was based off of a sandwich that she had from Panera bread. It was the veggie sandwich. Her sandwich had a pesto on it, but we just used hummus instead. I used a La Tortilla Factory wrap (which I love!) but this would also be delicious on any other tortilla, focaccia bread, or beer bread...of which I will be providing a recipe soon!!! Veggie Wrap
1 tortilla
hummus (see "recipe" below)
lettuce
tomatoes
red onion
cucumber
olive (not on this one but would be GREAT!)
goat cheese

Spread hummus on one side of the tortilla and goat cheese on the other side. Place lettuce on one side. Top with tomatoes, onion, cucumber, and olives. Roll and enjoy!

Hummus (this is how I make it about once a week)
1 can chickpeas, drained
2 Tablespoons olive oil
salt
parsley
garlic or garlic powder
1/2 cup water

Place all ingredients (except water) in food processor. Process (!). Gradually add water until processor runs smoothly. Taste and season as desired. Be careful not to add too much salt! I did this time and the only way we could eat the hummus was on this wrap!

Oh yum! I love veggie wraps. Yours looks delicious. I haven't made hummus since last summer. I need to make some.

I wanted to tell you thank you for your prayers for baby Caiden. It just breaks my heart to think of him over in that big city hospital hooked up to the ventilator. But I know he's where he needs to be, it's just hard. :(
But I really REALLY appreciate your encouragement. And I know you know what you are talking about!!
:)
Thank you.

Pearl - :-)

Pamela - Thanks!!! I really enjoy your blog...some great thoughts. Hope you find some things you enjoy.

Maria - Thanks! I got the ingredients just recently to make it again. :-)

FTF - Hope you enjoy it.

Jane - I hope that Caiden is improving. Thanks for allowing us to pray for him.

Gail - I recently discovered that the hummus is even better if you use chicken stock instead of water and process it a lot longer than you think you should...very creamy!
