From the Star Trek television series  

All of you trekkies will be familiar with this one. Hasperat is a notoriously spicy Bajoran dish in the Star Trek universe, and I'm sure it's going to be one of many Star Trek dishes to come... Oh yeah, I mean Gagh. Hasperat looks a little bit like a burrito and is made using a specially prepared brine, which if made correctly causes the eyes to water and sears the tongue. I guess it would be pretty nerdy of you to sneak this yummy wrap into the theatre and enjoy it while watching the midnight showing of the upcoming Star Trek movie by J.J. Abrams, which I'm totally not going to do...

Edit: Earlier today a smokin' hot Bajoran woman (She said her name was Ro?) beamed into my apartment and told me that my Harperat recipe was good, but slightly off. She said it needed to be brined in order to be an acceptable hasperat recipe, and she finds that the easiest way to do this is add some hot pickled veggies. You can either buy these or make your own. Also, she said, the green stuff is more like spinach than alfalfa sprouts. Go figure.


2 large flour or wheat tortillas

¼ avocado, peeled and thinly sliced

½ c. shredded jack cheese

1/2 c. hot pickled vegetables, chopped

1/4 c. spinach

3 tbsp. chopped red onion

1/2 c. cream cheese

sriracha or hot sauce of choice

Zap (or phaser) your tortillas in the microwave with a damp paper towel for a few seconds so they’re pliable. Mix the cream cheese with desired amount of hot sauce. Spread the cream cheese mixture on your tortillas, and make sure you cover the whole thing because this is what’s going to hold the wrap together. Layer the cheese on top. After the cheese, layer on the avocado, onions, spinach and vegetables. Roll the tortillas up tightly and tuck in the ends. If you wish, lightly grill each side for a few minutes. Cut each wrap in half diagonally and serve.

  1. Oh, this is right up my geek/trekkie alley on information! I will be talking to my hubby who also is a fan...good one! I had a bottle of 'Blood Wine' for a while, but it could not age, so I gave it away...

  2. Haha, always good to meet fellow geeks and trekkies. Bloodwine, huh? I hope this lucky person who received your bloodwine could hold their alcohol like a Klingon!

  3. I love your recipe. When I saw Hasperat on DS9 I had to try it :) I make mine as a main course using a thin suet roll with loads of chillis and brine pickled vegetables.

  4. I will try the full recipe later but I made some with what I had and thought I should share this because i think it puts a new spin on it. I substituted cheddar for jack cheese, used my homemade sauerkraut (cabbage in bread and butter pickle brine) for pickled vegetables, lettuce, onion, cream cheese and sriracha. I found that it had a very good sweet and spicy thing going on. I definitely recommend it.

  5. My sister and I just made this, and oh my god! It's delicious! We're both absolutely in love with hasperat now. Thanks! :)
