Ingredients

  • 1 medium eggplant (1 pound), peeled and sliced lengthwise 1/4-inch thick
  • 2 tablespoons oil-packed sun-dried tomato strips
  • 2 red bell peppers, seeded and quartered
  • 1 pound zucchini, sliced lengthwise 1/4-inch thick
  • 1 small red onion, sliced crosswise
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup fat-free Greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup reduced-fat cream cheese
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano or 1 teaspoon dried
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 4 whole-wheat lavash (12-inch size)

    How to make it   30 minutes

  • 1

    Heat a grill to medium-high heat.

  • 2

    Place the eggplant in a colander, sprinkle lightly with a pinch of the salt, and toss well. Let stand in sink for 30 minutes, then rinse under cool water, and pat dry. Meanwhile, drain the oil from the sundried tomatoes.

  • 3

    Grill the eggplant, peppers, zucchini and onion directly over the heat until nicely grill-marked and just tender, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Let cool slightly, then slice all of the vegetables crosswise into pieces about 1/2-inch wide.

  • 4

    Chop the sundried tomatoes and place in a small bowl. Stir in the yogurt, cream cheese, oregano, 1 tablespoon of the lemon juice, and the remaining pinch of salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper.

  • 5

    For each wrap, spread a lavash with about 3 tablespoons of the sundried tomato mixture. Starting about 1 inch up from the bottom of the lavash, arrange rows of eggplant, peppers, zucchini and onion, keeping the ingredients on the bottom third of the lavash. Sprinkle with a generous 1/4 teaspoon of lemon juice.

  • 6

    Fold the bottom of the lavash over the filling then fold in about 1 inch of the sides. Roll firmly away from you and cut each wrap in half on a diagonal.
