Wrap with sprouted chick peas, avocado and pesto

A nice hearty wrap with fresh sprouts.
1 person
20 Chickpeas
1 teaspoon Endive, Rape, Broccoli or Clover
1/2 avocado
1 tortillia wrap
2 medium tomatoes
¼ onions
Olive, walnut or pepper pesto
Step by step
Let the chickpeas soak for 10 hours and sprout for 4-5 days untill the white tip is 1,5 cm long.
Soak the Endive, Rape, Broccoli or Clover for 8 hours and cultivate in a sprouter for 6-7 days untill the first leaf unfold.
Once the sprouts are ready, rinse them thoroughly to remove all hulls. (Chick peas do not have hulls). Give the sprouted chickpeas a short boil for 3-5 minutes and mash them mixed with pesto, avocado and the liquid inner of the tomatoes.
Chop the sprouts with leaves on the middle and put a few sprouts aside for decoration.
You can eat the roots, but I find they look best, if chopped well. Slice the remainder of the tomatoes. Warm the tortillia in a pan without oil and butter with the pesto spread. Spread the tomato and sprouts on the tortillia, roll it and cut into 5 cm pieces. Arrange on plate and serve with garnish of sprouts.
Tip You can use raw, sprouted Mung beans or Lentil sprouts instead of Chickpeas, if you prefer uncooked sprouts. Only chickpeas must have a short boil after the sprouting due to their naturally high levels of Lechtins.
