1 tablespoon pure lemon juice
0.5 navel oranges
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 sprinkle of hemp seeds
1 cup cooked millet
2 teaspoons harissa seasoning (ground)
2 medium (unpeeled) garlic clovesShop this recipe
Prep: Cook and drain chickpeas. Juice Orange. Shave 2 carrots into ribbons. Slice Cabbage.
1. For the carrot hummus: Heat coconut oil in a medium skillet, add 3 carrots, garlic cloves, and a pinch of salt. Cook, rotating occasionally, until the outsides begin to char, about 8-10 minutes. Remove the garlic if it starts to burn. Add the harissa seasoning and let the carrots cook for just a minute longer. Remove from pan and let cool slightly. Peel the garlic.
2. Chop carrots into 1-inch pieces (it's ok if they're a little raw in the middle). Add the carrots, garlic, chickpeas, lemon juice and orange juice to your high speed blender or food processor. Puree, drizzling in the olive oil as you blend. (Note, I used a vitamix to get mine really smooth. Yours might be a chunkier texture if you use a food processor).
3. Taste and adjust seasonings to your liking. Chill until ready to use.
4. For the wraps: Trim off the coarse part of the stem. (Note: my leaves here were on the small side, if yours are bigger, slice more of the tough stem off).
5. Optional step: blanch the leaves in boiling water for just a second, then transfer to ice water. Let them dry before assembling. (recommended if your leaves are large and coarse).
6. Assemble with the above ingredients. Eat like a taco.
If your leaves are larger, you may want to wrap it up and tuck the edges like a burrito.
If you don't have harissa, sub in other spices such as: cumin, corriander, chile flakes and/or smoked paprika.
For a quick red cabbage slaw: thinly slice red cabbage, splash with sherry vinegar and a pinch of salt, let sit for at least 15 minutes.
