Instructions

 

  1. Place the eggplant in a large bowl and rub it with olive oil, za’atar seasoning and oregano until well coated.
  2. You can either roast or use the skillet to cook your eggplant, both work. If you are going to double the recipe to make more wraps, we would recommend roasting.
  3. To roast: Place your eggplant in a baking dish and roast at 200°C for 30 minutes, until they are very soft.
  4. To sauté: Heat a bit more oil in a large cast iron skillet (or other non-stick skillet) over medium heat. Add your eggplant and cook for 10-15 minutes until very tender.
  5. Combine the thinly sliced onion and vinegar in a bowl. Let it sit while you cook the eggplant and make the hummus sauce. Drain before serving.
  6. To make your sauce, combine your hummus, lemon juice, garlic, dill and a pinch of salt and pepper. Set this aside.
  7. To make your wraps pile the onions, cucumber, tomato and cooked eggplant on your wraps. Drizzle with the hummus sauce and eat immediately.
