GASTRONOMY'S

Swiss Chard Summer Vegetable Wrap, Herb Hummus, Ginger Pepper SauceWrap ingredients:

10 - 12 Large swiss chard leaves, stemmed

1 cucumber, peeled and cut into thin strips

1 red bell pepper, cut into thin strips

½ medium jicama, peeled and cut into thin strips

1 small carrot, peeled and cut into thin strips

1 stalk celery, cut into thin strips

2 cups herbed hummus (recipe follows)

1 ripe avocado, sliced

½ cup cashews, toasted and slightly crushed

20 fresh basil leaves

1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives

Instructions

Steam/boil the swiss chard leaves for 1 minute in salted water. Remove immediately and let cool.(Ice bath optional) Lay the leafs flat on paper towel and an additional paper towel on top. Using a rolling pin roll over the swiss chard to crush the hard veins. (remove paper towel which has just absorbed excess moisture from leaf)

Put the cucumber, bell pepper, jicama, carrot, and celery in a medium bowl and stir until well combined. (toss in a vinaigrette OPTIONAL)

To assemble a wrap, put a leaf of the swiss chard on a cutting board and spread approximately 3 -4 tablespoons of the hummus along one of the longer edges, then arrange 3-4 slices of the avocado on top of the hummus and a handful of the cucumber mixture, cashews, basil, and chives alongside the hummus. Roll up halfway, tucking in the ends so the filling won't squeeze out. Finish by rolling the wrap as tightly as possible.

The wraps can be cut into coins like sushi or eaten whole.
