Butternut Squash WRAPS WITH HUMMUS

makes 4 wraps

4 pieces of mountain bread (a paper thin flat bread, low calorie and low fat I am still looking for this)
Butternut squash slices (leave skin on, slice thin)
1/2 large red onion, finely sliced
Baby spinach leaves and alfalfa sprouts
1 can chickpeas
1 Tbsp tahini
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp smoked paprika

Char-grill the onions and Butternut Squash over a high heat until tender when pierced with a fork. While it's cooking, prepare the hummus: drain about half the liquid from the chickpeas, pour the rest with the chickpeas into the food processor. Add tahini, lemon juice, cumin and paprika. Blend until smooth.

When Butternut Squash and onions are cool enough to handle, lay each piece of bread flat and spread 1/4 of the hummus down the center of each wrap. Top with pumpkin slices, onion slices, spinach and sprouts. Roll carefully (these wraps are thin and tear easily, but once you get the hang of it they're fairly easy to use) and wrap in cling film or pack firmly in lunch box or other container.

I thought that recipe looked familiar -- it's mine, taken from my blog post.

Hope you enjoy them, they're really tasty. Mountain Bread is easy to find in Australia, but I'm sure there's a similar style flat-bread available where you are. They are about half the calories of a tortilla, so you could substitute that and just adjust the nutritional info accordingly.

Sorry, I saved that recipe on my hard-drive back in March and forgot to include a link to your blog. I have edited the URL to link back to your blog now.

It is a yummy recipe!

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
