Even though I LOVE salad, sometimes, I like to mix it up. Instead of making a Greek salad, for instance, put your salad in a Greek wrap. I love vegan lavash bread, and I found an oil-free version I adore! Although any wrap or tortilla, all the ingredients for a Greek salad can go right inside a toasted Greek wrap.
For this Greek wrap, I chose almost everything I put in my Greek salad, but I skipped the Greek dressing. Instead, I opted for some fat-free Engine brand hummus. Again, any hummus will do. And, I also added a little tahini dressing to give my Greek wrap a little Greek love.
WHAT INGREDIENTS ARE IN A VEGAN GREEK WRAP?
- Oil-free Lavash (Trader Joe’s Clay Oven Baked Whole Wheat Lavash Bread)or any vegan tortilla or wrap
- Non-fat hummus, or hummus of your choice (I used Engine)
- Tomato cut into slices
- Red onion, slivered or Simple Rosemary Infused Pickled Red Onions
- 1/2 Recipe Tofu Feta
- Roasted chickpeas
- Tahini dressing
OTHER POSSIBLE INGREDIENTS TO ADD:
- Kalamata olives
- Roasted Beets
- White onion
Trader Joe’s Lavash Bread, for instance, has four simple ingredients and no oil.
- Stoneground fine whole wheat flour
Now, that’s my kind of bread! And, its the perfect bread for a healthy Greek wrap.
HOW TO MAKE ROASTED CHICKPEAS FOR VEGAN GREEK WRAP
Despite the belief that oil must be used in roasting chickpeas or anything for that matter, it is not necessary. The aquafaba, for example, allows for the seasoning to stick to the chickpeas.
- Chickpeas (drained NOT rinsed)
- Smoked paprika
- Garlic powder
- Sea salt
Once seasoned, simply bake the chickpeas in a single layer, on a baking sheet lined with a silicone baking mat, in a 400-degree oven for 30 minutes.
TIPS FOR MAKING A CRISPY GREEK WRAP FROM GETTING SOGGY
In order to keep the Greek wrap from getting soggy, I place my wet ingredients in between the layers of drier ones.
Although you may be tempted to use hummus first, don’t. Instead, start with the spinach and place it in the middle of the wrap. Smear the hummus on the fresh spinach. Add sliced tomatoes, sliced red onion, beets. Top with a second layer of fresh spinach. This will keep your sandwich fresh, and work safely.
You can add anything you want; you just have to make sure it will roll up inside. I wrap with saran wrap to hold it tight and cut directly through the saran wrap. Place in your lunch bag, and hours later, you will have a wonderful Greek wrap.
