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. Cook until the veggies are softened to your liking, about 8 - 10 minutes.
  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!

Storage

  • Best if enjoyed immediately.
  • Wraps, fillings, and sauce can be stored separately in airtight containers in the fridge for up to 3 days.

I love this recipe ! All the spices work so well. We usually add some roasted potatos, they also go very well in this dish ! But even without them it's so good and also very easy !!!

Love the addition of potatoes, Clara, thank you!

I made this for my family for dinner last night and it was delicious! It's very easy to make so will definitely be a regular dinner for me when I'm back at uni, plus the leftovers make a great lunch 😋. Thank you so much for this recipe, and all the amazing recipies you make!

Thank you for sharing the review, Rebecca, we're so glad the recipe was enjoyed! Best of luck with your studies when they begin again :D


Lynda - July 28, 2021, 12:43 a.m.

I made this for dinner and it was so comforting and full of flavors! This will definitely become a staple recipe in our house. I used whole-grain wraps but will try with pita bread next time (would love a recipe from you on this by the way if you have any!).

Just one detail: it would be great if you could add the recommended cooking time for the vegetables once they are on medium heat with the lid on (I did manage without it though by simply tasting it as I went).

Cheers from France !

PUL Team - July 29, 2021, 5:43 p.m.

So good! First it sounded just ok to me, but i wanted to cook something with my Zaatar. But it left me overwhelmed, what a mix of tastes. Cooked this again and again after my first try.

Thank you again!

These were delicious! Made for quick and easy lunch. I was surprised by how much I loved the mint in there-- definitely will be looking to work it in to more of my recipes in the future. I added a pinch of red pepper flakes to the sauteed veggies and a tiny bit of a bite.

PUL Team - May 30, 2021, 8:06 a.m.

Love the addition of red pepper flakes, Max! So happy to hear 😃
