Curry Turkey Meatball Wrap with Chick Pea Yogurt Mint Hummus

This meal was so full of flavor that my 2 year old even ate the meatballs! I spread the hummus onto Flatout bread, added the meatballs and a little plain yogurt. I served it with Lentil, Bulgar and Spinach Salad (recipe to follow). Enjoy!
