Hummus and Grilled Vegetable Wraps

February 12, 2015

I’m currently staying in the UK and cooking here is not as easy as I would have thought. The grocery store is an adventure. They don’t have some standard things or they are located with things you wouldn’t have expected. The only peppers I’ve been able to find so far are bell peppers. Or an item is called something else. For example, zucchini is called courguette and molasses is treacle. And everything is measured by weight in grams. Even liquids are measured in grams making cooking based off some of my old recipes somewhat difficult. So it lends to a bit of creative cooking. This is an easy recipe that doesn’t really requiring measuring and would be a good summer grilling recipe as well.
