Recipe for a hummus and sprouts wrap – a good way to use leftover rotis
I can watch most movies, except science fiction. There are exceptions to the rule. Like attending the pre-release show of Star Wars III that started at 11.30 pm and ended in the wee hours of morning, when we were in the US. The things we do for love, I tell you. (This was in 2005)
(2016 Update: Star Wars VI The Force Awakens was also promptly watched before its release, for the Star Wars love of my 7 year old son. Some things never change)
I chanced upon Hasperat on the blog Vegan Yum Yum (food from the Star Trek), it looked anything but science fictional…instead it looked hearty, fresh and colourful and perfectly bite-worthy and was instantly tempted to try them out.
Hasperat is a spicy wrap, made with brine, that’s often talked about and enjoyed by inhabitants of the planet Bajor in the Star Trek series.
There were no tortillas on hand, but our roti is after all an Indian version of tortilla. With homemade hummus in the fridge, cucumbers peeled into ribbons and sauteed sprouts, I was all set to make my own version of the hasperat, heavily inspired from the Vegan Yum Yum blog
Rolled sandwiches with hummus, cucumber and sprouts
These go well for a hearty breakfast or a light lunch / dinner
