    To make hummus: In a blender or food processor, blend together the garbanzo beans, water, flax seed, olive oil, Sesame Oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt, Cumin, cayenne and pepper until it reaches a creamy light texture. Lay tortillas flat on counter. Divide hummus equally onto each tortilla (approximately 1/3 cup each). Spread to within 1/2 inch of edge. Lay 1/4 cup cucumber down center of each tortilla. Top each with a quarter of diced tomato. Pinch off desired amount of alfalfa sprouts, lay on top. Sprinkle with pepper. Roll up, tucking in one end and kepping the other end open. Serve with olives, marinated peppers or hot pepper sauce, if desired.
