Wrap with Grilled Vegetables 

Wrap with Grilled Vegetables

 

Since last year I have decided to eat more vegetables. Since then I am always looking for ways to add vegetables to my lunch and dinner. These wraps are filled with sweet potato, roasted pumpkin, avocado and arugula. I add a drizzle of tahini sauce, coriander and some za’atar. Za’atar is an herbal blend of wild oregano, sesame seeds, sumac and salt.

You can have the wraps for lunch, but they are nice as well for dinner. They taste delicious, hearty, warm and the sauce and herbs give it an extra touch.
