Mediterranean Vegetable Wraps With Hummus & An Award

Know what you eat: Set aside your normal chip dip, and try healthier alternative hummus..Chickpeas, or garbanzo beans, are the main ingredient in hummus It have no saturated fat, and no cholesterol. They aid in improving blood sugar levels and help fight cholesterol. They are also high in protein, making them a perfect addition to a vegetarian’s diet or one who would like to cut back on red meat.This wrap goes to "GLOBAL KADAI" event started by Cilantro, hosted at Divyablogs.

Preparation time: 10 mins
Cooking time: 10 mins
Serves 2

2 Whole Wheat Wraps (Damascus Bakery Whole Grain Roll Up "Whole Wheat Wraps")
2 Tbsp Sabra Hummus Sun dried tomato flavoured

For Stir Fry
 1/2 C Diced Paneer / Tofu
1 C Mix Vegetables (Carrot,Brocolli,Zucchini,Cauliflower, Water Chestnuts,Bell peppers, Yellow Corn,Baby Corn) Washed & Diced in similar pieces.
2 Tbsp Chopped Lettuce
2 Tbsp shredded Pepper jack cheese OR any cheese you prefer

For Seasoning:
 1 tsp (EVOO) Olive Oil
1 tsp Sesame Seeds
1/2 tsp Dried Coriander Pwd
1/2 tsp Turmeric Pwd (optional)
2 tsp Taco Seasoning Mix OR Garam masala pwd ( both taste equally good with this recipe)
1/2 tsp red chilli flakes (optional)
1/4 tsp Sambhal Olek ( chilli flakes + vinegar)
Salt to taste

Method for veg. stirfry
 1. Heat oil in large non- stick skillet / kadhai.
2. Add all the vegetables, now add sesame seeds & toss it well, then add all the seasonings except salt. Put the flame on high and cook it for 3- 4 mins for that crunch needed in this recipe, you can cook more if desired.
3. Add salt.

Putting together to make veg.wraps:
 1. On a hot griddle, place the whole wheat wrap, apply shortening if desired (butter), turn around when you see its cooked, lower down the flame.
2. Now with a spatula or butter knife spread hummus all over the wrap, then immediately add the cooked veg. (stir fry) that you just prepared. Add some chopped lettuce over it, now add cheese.
3. Fold over the 2 ends together one over other, to pack it like we do it for masala dosa or frankie.
4. Serve hot with the salad of your choice / tomato ketchup / hummus.

Thanks For Sharing This Award.. "We are truly Honoured" Parita
Talking about our accomplishments ??....NO ...the make our tummies happy as well.....The first time when I saw these Damascus Bakery Whole Grain Roll Up "Whole Wheat Wraps"at nearest Costco..I simply fell in love with it..little handy dandy wraps to just put any vegetable i make at home & add some cheese , give a nice name to it and tadaaaa...My kids think its a new dish wowwww & my goal of giving them to eat anything healthy is done....About the wraps they are different than usual wrap..they are rectangular in shape which makes it perect for any stuffing I put into it.. I just thought to be little more innovative in my way, making it as a mediterranean wrap with a touch of Indian spices ..My kids simply love this dish, and whenever we go to has become mandatory to buy one.. Story time over... now lets get onto to recipe..b4 that ((( Thanks Cham for reminding me of different versions availabe & the one you found was sweet... I immediately did the editing for the brand I bought)))
