Mini Lettuce Roll Snack

So simple this is hardly a 'recipe'. Add fiber and reduce the fat in hummus by adding more beans. Use a salad green as the 'wrap'. Add extra flavor with fresh herbs.

Ingredients:
-1 tablespoon hummus (home made or store bought)
-1 cup of canned chickpeas, rinsed
-leaves of lettuce
-carrots in thin sticks
-mint leaves or other herbs



Mash the chickpeas with the hummus. Chunky is ok.

Put the chickpea mix on the lettuce.


                      Add carrots, mint. 



                                                                                                               Roll. Eat. 


Use other vegetables - cucumber or red pepper.
Try other fresh herbs - coriander, basil.
Good with swiss chard, tender kale, spinach leaves, too.

Add crushed garlic, a little hot sauce, salsa.  

Doll up jarred salsa with these additions:
-chopped avocado
-fresh parsley, coriander, basil 
-chopped green onion or garlic
-chopped tomato- chunky

Doll up store bought hummus with:
-chopped roasted red pepper
-chopped roasted tomato
-other types of canned beans
-more fresh garlic
-drizzle of good olive oil and fresh lemon juice
-fresh parsley
-more black pepper
-dash of hot sauce
