Now, let’s get right into the heart of the matter – the recipe itself. Making these lentil and roasted vegetable wraps is a simple and easy process that can be completed in just a few quick steps.


For this recipe, we will need:

  • 1 cup dry lentils, rinsed
  • 4 cups low-sodium vegetable broth or water
  • 1 eggplant, diced and roasted
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped and roasted
  • 2 medium tomatoes, diced
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Juice of half lemon

And for the dressing:

  • 3/4 cup lemony marinated lentils (see ingredient list below)
  • Lemony tahini sauce (1/4 cup tahini, juice of half lemon, 1/2 tsp paprika, salt to taste)

Step-by-step instructions:
Step 1: Cook the lentils

In a pot over high heat, add lentils and enough water or veggie broth to cover them by an inch. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to low and simmer for about 25 minutes until they are cooked but still hold their shape. Drain any excess liquid and set aside.

Step 2: Roast the Vegetables

Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). On a lined baking sheet, spread diced eggplant and chopped red pepper evenly. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with cumin, salt and black pepper. Toss everything together so that everything is coated evenly. Roast in the oven for around 25 minutes or until browned.

Step 3: Prepare the Lemony Marinated Lentils

While the vegetables are roasting, prepare lemony marinated lentils by mixing rinsed cooked lentils with minced garlic, chopped green onions and juice of half lemon. Toss everything gently so that the lentils are well-coated with flavors.

Step 4: Make the Tahini Sauce

Make tahini sauce by whisking together tahini paste with lemon juice, paprika powder and salt until it’s smooth as possible.

Step 5: Assemble Your Wraps

Take one tortilla wrap at a time and spread hummus or spinach dip evenly over it before adding mashed lentil stew over it.

Divide roasted veggies evenly over each wrap/flatbread before topping them off with sun-dried tomatoes stripes if using.

Drizzle some tahini sauce on top of everything then sprinkle za’atar seasoning overwrap loaded veggies before folding them up tightly.

Enjoy !

These lentil wraps are perfect for lunch or dinner as they are packed full of flavor as well as high protein with red lentils

Who says you can’t enjoy a healthy meal on-the-go? Try these wraps!

Mmmh, there are so many ways to make this recipe your own! Here are some interesting substitutes and variations for the original recipe.

– Sweet potatoes instead of eggplants: If you’re not a big fan of eggplants or want to add some more sweetness to your wrap, sweet potatoes could be a great substitute. Dice them into small chunks and toss them with olive oil, cumin, and smoked paprika before roasting them in the oven.

– Red lentils instead of brown ones: I know we mentioned this in the ingredient list, but red lentils cook faster than brown ones and also have a slightly sweeter flavor. You can use them in this recipe and make a delicious lentil curry or stew.

– Use Trader Joe’s Mediterranean Lentil Wraps: I understand that cooking the lentils and roasted veggies from scratch can be time-consuming. So, you can cut down on prep time by using Trader Joe’s Mediterranean Lentil Wraps. They already come loaded with veggies and marinated lentils, making it easier for you to enjoy this recipe without much hassle.

– Swap spinach for another leafy green: If spinach isn’t your cup of tea, feel free to swap it out for kale, arugula or watercress for an added peppery flavor.

– Spiced lentil veggie wraps: To add some more heat to your meal, try making spiced lentil veggie wraps. Simply add 1 tsp of za’atar seasoning to the lentil mixture before stuffing it into the wraps.

Remember that these variations still go well with the lemony marinated lentils and lemon tahini sauce that gives this dish its distinctive Mediterranean flavor! Get creative and experiment with different combinations of ingredients for your next batch of veggie wraps.

Achieving perfection in cooking depends on technique, timing and a little bit of intuition. Allow me to share some tips that will take your Lentil and Roasted Vegetable Wraps Recipe to the next level.

1. Soak and rinse the lentils properly: Before cooking lentils, soak them in a large bowl of water for at least an hour, then drain and rinse them. This will make them easier to digest and minimize their cook time.

2. Don’t overcook the vegetables: While roasting eggplants and bell peppers thoroughly is important, be cautious not to overcook them. The vegetables should be tender but not mushy; they should have a slight firmness to them.

3. Mix up your spices: Although the recipe calls for cumin and oregano, don’t hesitate to swap in other spices such as paprika or za’atar to give your dish a different flavor profile.

4. Use high-quality tortillas: The type of tortilla you use will significantly affect the overall taste of this wrap recipe. I suggest using freshly made tortillas or even homemade ones if possible. If you don’t have either of those options available, opt for organic or non-GMO store-bought ones.

5. Cook the lentils with vegetable broth or water: Cooking lentils with low-sodium vegetable broth instead of water can add depth to their flavor.

6. Mash some of your lentils: Mashing some of your lentils can help bind together your ingredients so that they adhere better to the tortilla.

7. Add the lemon tahini sauce/hummus at the right time: Drizzle the lemon tahini sauce or hummus onto your wraps just before serving, as these dressings may cause sogginess if left sitting too long.

By following these tips, you’ll elevate this Mediterranean Lentil Veggie Wrap recipe from “good” to “great”, impressing all who try it.
