If you like to make easy grilled vegetable recipes, you might like to try these wonderful, Middle Eastern style grilled vegetable wraps. Succulent grilled vegetables are combined in this recipe with flavorful hummus, aromatic herbs, and crispy warm tortillas, making this a delicious lunch or even a light dinner.

If you fancy a change from plain grilled vegetable recipes, try this tasty recipe. You will love the combination of textures and flavors in the vegetable wraps.

So what is in there? Well you have eggplant, mushrooms, 2 colors of bell pepper and green onion, which is certainly a lot of variety to thrill vegetable lovers. As well as the veggies, this recipe includes lemon, juice, hummus and fresh herbs and of course the tortilla wraps too. You do not have to be a vegan or vegetarian to enjoy such a meal. It makes a tasty change from similar chicken or beef tortilla wraps, and you will find the vegetables to be really flavorful. Cooked perfectly they will be succulent and juicy and the flavor is so good it is hard to describe. Ensure these are served lovely and hot from the grill for the very best results. If you have some vegetables left over you can always serve them in a salad the next day. Some people will deliberately make extra so this is a possibility for the following day’s lunch.

Into the wraps goes some hummus as well as the fresh herb and lemon mixture. You can grill the tortillas before assembling the wraps too, to warm them up, make them more pliable and bring out their flavors. The grill marks on them also look really good. Choose your favorite kind of hummus to add to these. Some people have a preference and others like to make their own. Hummus is a Middle Eastern spread made from garbanzo beans (chickpeas) as well as lemon, tahini, garlic, and cumin. To make your own, you just need to whiz the ingredients in a food processor to get a nice thick texture. Hummus makes a lovely dip with chips or vegetable crudités so if you are making your own just make extra and you will find plenty more uses for it.

These grilled vegetable wraps offer a Middle Eastern flavor. Although you might associate tortillas with Mexican cuisine, stuffing them with hummus, lemon and fresh herbs does offer an unmistakable taste of the Middle East. A lot of people find they have the same things most of the time when firing up the grill, and there is nothing wrong with enjoying hamburgers and grilled chicken, but sometimes it is nice to have something different, and this exciting Middle Eastern veggie wrap certainly fits the bill. Offer this to visiting vegetarians or enjoy it yourself. You cannot go wrong with this very easy recipe and once you have tasted the harmonious flavors you will want to make this delicious dish again and again.
