Healthy Recipe: Grilled Veggie and Hummus Wraps

admin - September 16, 2014



veggie and hummus wrap recipe

Summer is officially coming to a close, so now’s the time to take advantage of the season’s delicious fresh vegetables – quick, before the leaves start changing colors!

No matter how you slice them, veggies are the perfect healthy complement to any meal. Sauté them, bake them, serve them fresh – you can’t go wrong! In this recipe from CookingLight, you’ll find a most delicious combination of grilled vegetables and hummus wrapped in a healthy whole-grain flatbread.

Grilled Veggie and Hummus Wraps

4 (1/2-inch-thick) slices red onion

1 red bell pepper, seeded and quartered

1 (12-ounce) eggplant, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices

2 tablespoons olive oil, divided

1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

1/8 teaspoon kosher salt

1 (8-ounce) container plain hummus

4 (1.9-ounce) whole-grain flatbreads (such as Flatout Light)

1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

This recipe provides a great alternative to your typical grilling-out routine. Remember to keep in mind some key factors before throwing your veggies on the grill.

Vegetables are much easier to gauge when grilling because you don’t need to worry about over- or undercooking them, as you do when working with meat. It all depends on your desired consistency! Be sure to lightly coat your vegetables in oil before grilling so they don’t dry out. Some vegetables also take longer to grill than others. To avoid burning, keep denser vegetables lower on the grill.

Vegetables have always been known to benefit any diet. Maintaining a regular intake of vegetables can very well reduce the risk of stroke, cancer, heart diseases, and diabetes. For more information on preventive health care, visit lifelinescreening.com.
