Roasted Veggie Wrap with Hummus and Goat cheese

I once had a roommate.  This roommate and I didn't often agree on our food choices.  Then one day she made this and it was delightful.  Then we were friends. : )

This isn't her exact recipe, but like all recipes it is open to personal interpretation.

This is a great recipe that can be made ahead of time and made to impress guests.

I used a gluten free brown rice wrap for this, and since they are pretty fragile you can't really roll them, just fold them like a quesadilla.  Alternately you can also put it on bread.

This guy would probably opt to put it on bread and slather it with bacon : )

This guy is Gunnar, aka, Brodo Baggins, aka, little brother.

He just joined the Marines and they make him dress like this.

We are proud of his decision...that is his decision to join the Marines...not his fashion decisions...we do not endorse those.  For obvious reasons. : )

Roasted Veggie Wrap with Hummus and Goat Cheese

(you can always buy this pre made from the store, but really it is so simple to throw together)

In food processor or blender blend until smooth the following ingredients:

3 cups canned chickpeas, drained (which is 2 cans)
1/2 cup tahini (which is ground sesame seeds and can be found in the international food isle)
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tsp salt
3 cloves chopped garlic
3 TBS olive oil
1/4 tsp paprika
2 tsp chopped fresh parsley (optional)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Place the following vegetables on a sheet tray and drizzle with olive oil and salt and pepper:

1 eggplant (peeled and sliced into 1/2" disks
2 red peppers (sliced into large slices)
1 yellow pepper (sliced into large slices)
2 cups fresh mushrooms (sliced into quarters)

Roast in oven for 15-20 minutes until peppers are tender, but still have a slight crunch to them.
FYI you can use a variety of veggies here instead of what I put...zucchini, other peppers, spinach, asparagus, carrots, onions...anything you have or like should work fine.


Heat a frying pan up and place each wrap into pan for a few seconds to slightly soften and warm.  (Or you can keep it all cold as well) Or you can assemble to whole thing and pop it in the oven or a toaster oven for a few minutes.

 Remove from pan and lay on flat surface.  Spread each tortilla/wrap with 1 TBS Goat cheese and 2-3 TBSP Hummus.  Layer on as much of the veggies as you like.  Optionally add lettuce and spinach to up the veggie content.  Drizzle with olive oil, then salt and pepper if you like!  Fold, sandwich, or roll and enjoy!

Eat your heart out,
