Have I ever mentioned before that I am a crazy hummus lover? I believe so… hummus, to me, is about the crossing of cultures. It is a Palestinian food, where I come from, but has been appropriated by many Israelis and served in Israeli hummus joint as well. A stealing of culture, yes. I long for the day when we can have cultural exchanges, and food will become “ours”. When we can celebrate culture because it will become everyone’s. But that’s not until we work through our many, many problems back home.
And until then, I will present you with an amazing raw vegan hummus that tastes just like the real thing, and may I dare say, even better? This hummus is housed in none other than wrawp – a delicious, versatile, raw wrap that you can use for so many yummy things, and so quickly too! I love wrawps and get them as a treat every once in a while, because I don’t have a dehydrator and thus, lack the capability to make such wraps on my own. Plus, they do the best job at thinning the dough out to the point of perfection. Amazing!
Easy and Quick Raw Vegan Wrap
It’s very easy and quick to make your very own raw wraps. It took me 20 minutes to create this beautiful and delicious dish, and it is such a fun variation from my normal salad dinner. I hope you enjoy it too! And hey, if you do, I’d love it if you share this recipe with others! If you make this recipe, please tag me on instagram and facebook at @SoulintheRaw.
Rolling wrawps is very easy. It is just like a burrito. Just line all of your ingredients at the bottom of the wrap, keeping a small space for rolling, and roll easy. I like to eat them with a knife and fork so that my ingredients are not flying all over the place. (Can you tell by the photo that I always go overboard and put way too many ingredients in there? ;))
