This is one of the recipes we used in our Wellness Notebook project (see previous post). I created this recipe when I discovered, shocked, that only one of my students had eaten hummus before. Well, either that or everyone was not paying attention enough to raise their hands. Actually, that second one sounds more likely. At any rate, I determined we were going to eat hummus. And spinach. And we were going to like it.
4 large spinach tortillas
2 c. baby spinach leaves, washed
2 roma tomatoes, sliced lengthwise
1 1/3 c. plain hummus (I used Sabra brand)
salt and pepper
1. Lay out 4 tortillas on a flat work surface. Using a butter knife, spread 1/3 c. of hummus on each tortilla.
2. Over the hummus, lay a layer of spinach leaves. Use enough leaves to cover the surface of the tortilla.
3. Lay 3 or 4 tomato slices down the center of each tortilla. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
4. Roll the tortillas up tightly, like a burrito. Slice each tortilla on the diagonal, creating 5 or 6 slices , about 1 1/2 inches thick.
5. Serve the slices on a plate.
This turned out to be one of the favorite recipes of the semester! It received the highest compliment one can get from a teenager: "This tastes kinda like Taco Bell!" Yesssss.
Share, comment, and let me know if you try this recipe out! I kept it simple for teenage tastes, but you can add any veggies you like in there!
