After a week of pretty heavy meals, tonight we needed something lighter. An easy vegetarian dinner. So I turned to a meal that is usually a staple during the summer months. I don’t even really know what to call it, but since it only has one consistent ingredient, it should be named after that. Tonight I made Flat Bread Wraps.The strategy is simple. Get all your usual salad ingredients, chop or grate them up and instead of tossing them together, lay them out on a platter. Rummage around for a couple of vegetarian protein ingredients, make a dip (if you can be bothered) and plonk everything on the table with a stack of some kind of flat bread.
Everyone can choose which combination they have in their wrap. In our house, at least two vegetables per wrap are mandatory. Tonight, people could choose from:
I also made a quick tzatziki (yoghurt, finely diced cucumber, crushed garlic mixed in a bowl).
For protein we had some falafels (from a packet mix) and I cooked some brown rice and lentils for those who wanted extra bulk. Other nights, I would have used refried beans or soft boiled eggs. We wrapped everything up in lebanese bread, but other times we’ve had tortillas, souvlaki wraps or pita breads.
This meal is extremely fuss free and a good way to keep everyone happy! It’s an idea that can easily be adapted for if you are feeding one or 21.
