Pea Hummus

1 cup fresh or frozen shelled peas

¼ cup fresh cilantro

2 tablespoons tahini

2 tablespoons lemon juice 

1 small clove minced garlic

⅛ teaspoon ground cumin

Pinch of salt (about 1/16 teaspoon)



2 medium-sized, whole wheat tortillas

1 cup black beans, drained and rinsed

¾ cup corn kernels

½ cup celery, chopped



Pea Hummus

Bring a small pot of water to a boil. Add peas; cook until tender (about 2 minutes). Drain and run under cold water.

In a blender or food processor, pulse peas, cilantro, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, and cumin for 30 to 40 seconds. Season with salt.



Lay tortilla down flat. Spread hummus over the entire width of the tortilla. Sprinkle ¼ cup of celery, ¼ cup of corn and ½ cup of black beans on top of the hummus. 

Roll the tortilla up. Cut off a small portion of each end and discard. Cut the remaining rolled tortilla into six to eight 1-inch thick coins.
