Who needs bread when you can have your sandwich wrapped in mineral-rich cos lettuce leaves? One of the real powerhouses of nutrition is the live sprouts, an excellent source of minerals, amino acids and phytochemicals. Add living sprouts to as many meals as you can.
SERVES – 1/2
- 4 large cos lettuce leaves
- 8 tablespoon raw hummus
- 1 cup baby spinach
- 1 cup live sprouts, such as broccoli or alfalfa
- 1 small carrot, peeled and grated 1 small beetroot, peeled and grated 1 large ripe tomato, thinly sliced
- 1 avocado, sliced
- salt and ground black pepper
- cooked skinless chicken breast (optional)
Remove 4 large lettuce leaves and remove the tough stem of each leaf.
Put 2 leaves on each plate, placed on top of each other so the stem ends are on opposite sides.
Spread half the hummus down the centre of each set of leaves.
Arrange the baby spinach on top of the hummus.
Layer the sprouts, carrot and beetroot over the hummus on each set of leaves, then top with the sliced tomato and avocado and season with salt and pepper.
Add the sliced chicken breast at this point if you are going to use it.
Roll the wrap, starting at one of the stem ends and rolling the wrap up lengthwise.
