So this has definitely been a big hummus week in our household :)....hence all the hummus based recipes...
Dawnell Kent, one of our readers (who is also an AMAZING personal trainer) sent in this recipe...I made it last night...changed a few things because of what I had in my fridge...and my husband and I absolutely loved it! Fennel is such a great vegetable...definitely not used enough.
These are the following replacements I made: Instead of using the yellow onion I used 2 fennel bulbs, 1 tablespoon of soy sauce and a pinch of asafoetida. I replaced the spinach with Kale (and threw this in while cooking the sauté mixture), omitted the raisins and used artichoke and mixed herb flavor hummus (which I probably used about 2-3 tablespoons for each of ours.. :) a little bit more than what the recipe called for).
Overall, the wrap turned out great...super easy and super tasty... really hit the spot for us last night, thanks for sharing Dawnell!

  2. Warm tortillas in same pan with left over (now flavored) olive oil. You should only have a small amount left.
