Ingredients

FOR BULGUR

½ cup dry bulgur wheat

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

¼ cup plus 3 tablespoons water

¼ teaspoon fine sea salt, to taste

¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper, to taste

½ teaspoon onion powder

1 clove garlic, pressed

 

FOR HUMMUS

1 can (15 ounces) chickpeas, drained and rinsed

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 heaping tablespoons tahini

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1 tablespoon brine from jar of capers

½ teaspoon paprika

2 cloves garlic, pressed

Salt, to taste

2 tablespoons capers

 

FOR VEGGIES

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 ⁄3 cup chopped red onion

4 cups mix of shredded green cabbage, red cabbage, and carrots Salt and pepper, to taste

 

FOR WRAPS

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil or fresh lemon juice

Six 10-inch flour tortillas

Directions

To make the bulgur: Combine all the ingredients in a medium-size bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 2 hours, until the liquid has been absorbed. Fluff with a fork. Set aside.

 

To make the hummus : Combine the chickpeas, olive oil, tahini, lemon juice, brine, paprika, garlic, and salt in a food processor. Process until mostly smooth, scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula. Add the capers and pulse a few times, just so the capers are partially chopped.

 

To make the veggies: Heat the oil in a large skillet. Add the onion and shredded veggies and cook over medium-high heat for 6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the veggies just start to soften. Remove from the heat, add a pinch of salt and pepper, add to the bulgur, and stir to combine. Let cool completely.

 

To assemble the wraps : Stir the oil into the cooled bulgur mix. Spread 1/4 cup hummus onto each wrap. Add 1/3 cup bulgur mix on top and roll up tightly, tucking in the ends midway through rolling. Cut in half and serve.
