The dish I have to share with you today is a continuation of the Hummus recipe. You will notice that the photos are in the same setting, and obviously they were served on the same day. This meal is completely meatless and if it were not for the feta (made from goat's milk) we could call it a vegan meal. Is there vegan Feta cheese? My husband the carnivore loved this meal, he said it was one of the best ones ever. Pretty nice compliment I think.

The funny thing is that it was one of those meals where I went into the kitchen in the morning wondering what the heck to make for dinner, but most importantly what was left to eat. (Not that I ever plan ahead anyway.) We urgently needed to make a proper grocery store trip so there was not much in our empty fridge. I'll tell you a little secret, I love those days. It makes me be creative and more often than not we get to enjoy a fantastic meal. Just don't tell my husband I said this. We do our main or large grocery shopping together, it's actually more enjoyable and we both get an input as what will be on the menu. I also need him to tell me what meat cuts are what, I'm so clueless. Do you guys like grocery shopping with your significant other?

Besides being a good meal because it is meatless it is inexpensive, healthy, nutritious and oh so easy to prepare. It's a total brainless meal, see win win all the way. During the day I boiled the garbanzos for the hummus and roasted the vegetables all while I went back to my desk to write and edit photos. Of course you could also just buy ready made hummus or canned garbanzos instead. By the time dinner was ready to be served all I needed to do was warm the pitas and plate it all. I just served all of the veggies on a large plate, hummus and bread on the side. Easily laid out for each of us to assemble our own wraps. It may look like a small or un-filling meal, but we actually had leftovers and were stuffed like little piggies. I hope you guys try this out either for an easy dinner or even as party food.

Ingredients:
Serves 2
2 large red bell peppers, roasted
2 large yellow bell pepper, roasted
1 large eggplant, roasted
4 whole spring onions, or more
Hummus (my homemade recipe is here)
mild pickled Bulgarian chiles, they are long
fresh Feta cheese
olives of choice
pack of wheat pitas or any arabic style bread

olive oil
salt
ground black pepper

The peppers and eggplant need to be roasted first, and if you are also making your own hummus have it ready.

Roasted Peppers:
Instructions on how to roast the peppers can be found here, How to Roast Bell Peppers .
Roasted Eggplant:
Remove the stem, slice length wise. Brush with a little olive oil and sprinkle salt and ground black pepper. Roast at the same time as the bell peppers, How to Roast Bell Peppers .
Roasted Onions:
Cut off roots and rinse well. Roast with the bell peppers and eggplant. These will be cooked through sooner, remove from oven and set aside.

Assembling the wraps:
Spread a layer of hummus on top of a warm pita (or any arabic bread), then layer the other ingredients on top as desired.

Serve with a glass of red wine.

Yes the perfect lazy day meal. Happy Spring to you as well :)

Nancy! I would love this wrap too! I like roasted bell pepper and eggplant. Olive is a nice touch and a kick in this wrap. No wonder why you husband thinks this is one of the best ones!

Spicie Foodie March 22, 2011 at 8:10 PM  

Hi Tanantha, I think the roasted peppers and eggplant were my husbands favorite part :)

Sandra March 22, 2011 at 8:18 PM  

This look so beautiful and tasty Nancy!
Yes I love shopping with my hubby, it is much easer for me!

Michelle Chin March 22, 2011 at 8:27 PM  

Wow, it's like a mixture of many different things in one meal! My kind of thing!

What a beautiful wrap! I also enjoy those particularly lean days where the fridge and cupboard are stocked with some interesting things. It really stretches my food creativity. You've made a delicious vegetarian plate, the roasted vegetables look delectable.

A splendid wrap and what a lovely presentation. Feast for the eyes!

Now that is my kind of meal. Beautifully colored, easy to prepare, and packed full of flavor! Too bad for me the hubby is a carnivore at heart, no way would this suffice.

Honestly this is one of my favourite meals to eat, what more could you want.....it looks perfect. (wishing I could eat it!!!)

I love all of the flavors you've put in these wraps! I wouldn't miss meat at all. :)

Such a healthy and delicious vegetarian dish!

I have to have this. It just snowed and I am done with comfort foods - I want... nay - I crave those vegetables (and the hummus does add a wee bit of comfort without being obnoxious). I do love a grocery outing with husband-person - he sees things I do not.

A little bit of everything March 25, 2011 at 11:04 PM  

roasted veggies and hummus, what a delicious meal. i'd definitely enjoy two wraps.
i rarely plan ahead what to cook and almost never go shopping without hubby. someone has to watch our daughter while i loose myself between the store isles. :))
