Lettuce Wraps with Hummus, Kalamatas, Feta and Basil

IMG_6718

Aren’t we all just looking for something else to put hummus on?

Baby carrots and hummus… been there done that.

I love a good hummus sandwich, but sometimes it ends up being a little too bready. (And you know how we Californians feel about our carbs…I want to make a kale juice just thinking about it ).

This is a perfect solution to the question that we are asking ourselves every day, if not every minute…. “What will I put hummus on next!?”


Ingredients:

*This recipe yields about as much as you want it to. I’m not going to give you amounts, but look at the pictures for a guideline. Feel free to adjust amounts to your liking.

  • nice crisp leaves of Romaine lettuce (I like the layer just inside the outer layer). Iceberg would work too but ends up cracking a lot.
  • Finely chopped red onion
  • Hummus of any variety
  • Chopped kalamata olives
  • crumbled feta
  • chopped tomatoes
  • fresh basil, chiffoned
  • S&P to taste

Directions

(if you would call them that)

  1. Separate leaves from head of romaine. Rinse and dry.
  2. Spread a layer of hummus on the leaves, about 1 Tbsp plus a little more (eyeball it depending on the size of the leaf).
  3. Top each leaf with a sprinkle of each of the rest of  the ingredients.
  4. Serve immediately and enjoy!
