Preparation

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. To prepare Cilantro Hummus: With the motor running, drop 1 clove peeled garlic through the feed tube of a food processor fitted with a steel blade attachment; process until finely minced. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Rinse and drain one 15-ounce can no-salt-added garbanzo beans (chickpeas). Add garbanzo beans, 3 tablespoons lemon juice, 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 tablespoon tahini (sesame seed paste), ¼ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon white pepper. Process until completely smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides as necessary. Add ¼ cup fresh cilantro leaves. Pulse several times or until cilantro is evenly distributed and chopped. Chill until ready to use (see Tip).
  2. To prepare Mediterranean Wraps: In a large bowl combine greens, cucumber, tomato, red onion, feta cheese and banana peppers. In a small bowl whisk together vinegar, olive oil, garlic and black pepper. Pour dressing mixture over greens mixture. Toss to combine.
  3. Spread each wrap with about 2½ tablespoons hummus. Top with dressed greens mixture. Roll up. Serve immediately.
  • To make ahead: Hummus may be prepared and chilled up to 3 days before using.
  • Serve with Mint-Berry Spritzer.
