Eggplant, Chickpea, Tomato Roll Ups


I still am using all my fresh garden produce while it lasts. This was tonight’s fast dish. I like this recipe, if it marinates, it is even better. if you are not a chickpea fan, try black beans or skip all together.

Eggplant, Chickpeas, Tomato Roll Ups


1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon coarsely chopped fresh thyme leaves
1 tablespoon coarsely chopped fresh oregano leaves
Vegetable oil cooking spray
2 large eggplant, cut into 1-inch cubes (with skins on)
1 small onion, peeled, root end left intact, halved lengthwise, cut into 8 wedges
1 cup drained canned chickpeas, rinsed
6 ounces cherry tomatoes (about 11 tomatoes), halved (quartered if large) or any other tomatoes you have  to make about 1 cup.

4 garlic cloves

1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
Freshly ground pepper
4 ounces fresh part-skim mozzarella, thinly sliced
4 whole-wheat lavash pieces or whole-wheat wraps (2 ounces and 8 inches each)

1.Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Whisk vinegar, lemon juice, 1 tablespoon oil, and 1 teaspoon each thyme and oregano in a small bowl; set vinaigrette aside.

2.Lightly coat a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. Toss eggplant, zucchini, onion, and garlic with remaining 2 teaspoons each thyme and oregano in a large bowl. Spread in a single layer on prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with remaining 2 tablespoons oil. Roast, tossing occasionally, until golden, 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool slightly.

3.Transfer vegetable mixture to a large bowl. Add chickpeas, tomatoes, and salt; season with pepper. Drizzle with vinaigrette; toss to coat. Arrange mozzarella in center of lavash pieces or wraps. Top each with 1 1/4 cups vegetable salad. Roll up, and cut in half.
