Roasted Eggplant, Squash, Asparagus and Chickpea Wraps


If I were stranded on a desert island and could only bring three recipes, this would be one.

... I mean it! The fresh thyme and oregano pairing is amazing and the veggies are roasted to delicious perfection. And tomorrow's lunch? Check.

What you'll need:

2 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon coarsely chopped fresh thyme leaves
1 tablespoon coarsely chopped fresh oregano leaves
Vegetable oil, cooking spray
1 eggplant, cut into 1-inch cubes
3 medium yellow squash, cut into 1-inch cubes
1 bunch asparagus, cut into 2-inch pieces
1 sweet onion, halved lengthwise and sliced into wedges
1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1/2 pint grape tomatoes, halved
1 teaspoon coarse salt
Freshly ground pepper
8 ounces fresh part-skim mozzarella, thinly sliced
Whole-wheat wraps (2 ounces and 8 inches each)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Slice/dice/prepare vegetables.

Whisk vinegar, lemon juice, 2 tablespoons oil, and 1 teaspoon each thyme and oregano in a small bowl; set vinaigrette aside.

Lightly coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray (you may need two). Toss eggplant, squash, asparagus, onion, and remaining 2 teaspoons each thyme and oregano in a large bowl.

Spread veggies in a single layer on prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with remaining 2 tablespoons oil. Roast, tossing occasionally, until golden, 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool slightly.
(mmmm.... roasty)

Transfer vegetable mixture to a large bowl. Add chickpeas, tomatoes, and salt; season with pepper. Drizzle with vinaigrette; toss to coat.

Fill wraps and top with fresh mozzarella slices. (And if you're really in the mood for something different, try these with chili sauce. So good.) Serves 6.
