Za'atar & Mint Veggie Wraps

20 min

Meal

Za'atar is the name of a herb that's traditionally dried in the sun and then mixed with sesame seeds, sumac, and several other flavourful spices. It's commonly eaten with pita (round flatbread) and dipped in olive oil, or used on baked bread, hummus or to season vegetables with! For this recipe, we chose to season the veggies with our own homemade Za'atar spice mix. These wraps are filling and flavour-packed, quick to make, and incredibly wholesome.

Directions

Click:

  1. To a large pan on high heat, add the oil, and when hot, add in the cumin seeds. Give this a couple of stirs in the hot oil, just to toast it a bit, before adding the zucchini, eggplant, and salt. Cook this for 3 - 4 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent burning.
  2. Add the lentils, bell pepper, and za'atar mix to the pan. Stir, drop the heat to medium and cover with a lid.
  3. To make the yogurt sauce, to a medium bowl, add in the yogurt, garlic, lemon juice, mint leaves, and salt. Stir, and set aside.
  4. Toast your bread, if desired. We like to brush a bit of water on both sides of the pita bread, and then add it to the preheated skillet to toast for a few seconds, or until it warms up and crispens a bit.
  5. To assemble the pita, lather on a few spoonfuls of the yogurt sauce, followed by some lettuce, the sautéed veggies, diced tomatoes, and then finally, we'll drizzle overtop some tahini. Spreading some hummus in the wraps is always delicious, but optional. Fold the wraps, and enjoy!
