Somehow I've always got hummus ingredients on hand so I at least had that going for me...
chick peas, tahini, lemons, salt, garlic
then all I had was carrots, golden raisins, four grape tomatoes, a big piece of romaine lettuce and some slivered almonds. Hmm...
"Well, I could finely chop some carrot and those little tomatoes. Then I could toss in some raisins for sweetness and add some slivered almonds for crunch! THEN I could mix it all up and make it like a lettuce wrap of sorts and top it with my fresh hummus!"
So I did. And I'd do it again any day... don't judge until you try it. It's actually not boring and it's actually so good. The only trouble was that I literally only had one romaine leaf left so, I ended up eating the rest of the filling drizzled with hummus straight out of the bowl, almost like a salad.
(there's one photo of this because honestly, I wasn't expecting a blog post out of my barren fridge)
Okay! So whip up some of our homemade hummus. So fast and so easy. Then chop two carrots, and a few tomatoes into small bits... the smaller (or thinner) the better I say. Toss those in a small bowl with a handful of golden raisins and a sprinkling of slivered almonds. You can use regular raisins if that's all you've got on hand but, I really like the mild sweetness of the golden compared to regular... personal preference! Lay out a few romaine leaves, fill with your yummy chopped carrot salad and go to town with that hummus. Wrap it up like a burrito and enjoy!
Some days you've just gotta keep it simple, amen?!
