When the weather is gorgeous, who wants to waste time in the kitchen? This no-cook recipe is ideal for hot Summer nights because it comes together quickly and is 100 percent portable. It does, however, require a food processor or blender to make the thick artichoke-chickpea hummus-style spread. To create the crunchy slaw, shredded cabbage, carrots, and bell pepper are tossed with a yogurt, lemon juice, and parsley dressing.

Folded into a soft flour tortilla, the two elements make a filling, flavorful vegetarian meal. Check out the recipe and keep reading.

Ingredients

Artichoke spread
14-oz. can artichoke hearts, drained and halved
1 cup canned chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1/3 cup tahini
Small handful fresh parsley leaves
1 medium clove garlic, coarsely chopped
1/2 to 2 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 to 1/4 tsp. freshly ground pepper
To assemble:
1 1/4 cups very thinly sliced green cabbage
2 medium carrots, shredded (3/4 cup)
1/2 medium green bell pepper, very thinly sliced
3 Tbs. plain low-fat yogurt
1 Tbs. chopped fresh parsley
1 Tbs. minced red onion
2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. freshly ground pepper
5 (9- to 10-inch) flour tortillas

Directions

  1. Make artichoke spread: In food processor or blender, combine all ingredients and 2 tablespoons water. Process until mixture is almost smooth but retains some texture and is slightly thicker than hummus; if necessary, add more water by teaspoon to thin. Adjust seasonings to taste. Set aside or refrigerate if not using right away.
  2. In medium bowl, combine cabbage, carrots, bell pepper, yogurt, parsley, onion, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Mix well.
  3. In large skillet, warm each tortilla over medium heat just until soft and flexible, about 1 minute per side. Spread some artichoke mixture over each tortilla, leaving 1/2-inch border. Top with cabbage mixture, dividing equally. Fold bottom end of tortilla partially over filling, then roll into a bundle and serve.

Serves 5.
