Lavash Wraps

Lavash wraps are very thin wheat flour-based flatbreads of Armenian and Middle-eastern origin. They are soft and pliable but have a coarse and slightly rustic texture (not smooth like a commercial tortilla.) In the US, Lavash are sold commercially in large supermarkets, Trader Joes and Whole Foods. Find them near tortillas, pitas, flatbreads and other wraps. They are packaged four or more to a bag and sometimes refrigerated.

A popular brand is Joseph’s Bakery. I like their Multigrain lavash because they have three grams of fiber and only 100 calories each.

If you cannot find lavash wraps sub in Lebanese Mountain Bread or another thin unleavened flatbread.

Tzatziki

To bring the flavors together, add moisture and help hold the wraps closed you’ll need a cup of tzatziki.

To make this easy enough for a weeknight dinner, I recommend buying premade tzatziki which can be found near hummus and other refrigerated deli spreads and dips. However, if you want to make it from scratch here is my Tzatziki recipe.

If you want to make this recipe vegan, substitute Baba Ganoush or Roasted Garlic Hummus instead of tzatziki and omit the feta cheese.

Vegetables

The roasted veggies in the filling are a combo of sweet onion, bell pepper and eggplant tossed with oil, salt, dried oregano and freshly chopped garlic.

If you do not like one of these veggies, simply substitute another one of your favorites. (Zucchini, Yellow Squash, and Mushrooms would be good alternatives.) Note harder veggies like carrots will take longer to roast and should be paired with similarly textured veggies that cook at the same rate.
