Raquel’s Almost Weekly Recipe

My wife Raquel is a wonderful cook.  It’s always a delight to come home a find some new dish on our table or open the handlebar bag to find a yummy lunch.  Raquel has agreed to share a few bike-friendly recipes for both touring and day rides.  Here’s the first, Jack

Sprout and Hummus Wrap: a great day ride lunch.


The first step is growing fresh sprouts.  You could buy them from your local market, but growing sprouts is a fun way to save a few dollars.  You’ll also have the freshest, tastiest and guaranteed organically grown sprouts.  We use an Easy Sprout from The Sprout People (a good online source for seeds and sprouters). 

The spouting process takes about a week but, apart from rinsing your sprouts a couple of times a day, there’s really no effort involved.  Counter top farming at its best!

Next prepare the hummus.  This recipe makes about 1-1/3 cups spread and takes about 10 minutes.

1 can 15-16oz garbanzo beans, drained
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
1 clove garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons lemon juice
½ teaspoon salt, to tastec
hopped fresh parsley
½ tablespoon horseradish (optional, to taste) 

Spread onto wrap (we use Mission brand flavored tortillas), cover with sprouts, roll up and enjoy.   Happy feasting, Raquel
