STEP TWO:
Take a whole wheat lavash bread (flatbread) and soften it in the microwave oven for about 20 seconds. (This helps it roll easier without it cracking.) Next spread the warm lavash with with garlic hummus. Sprinkle your minced vegetables over two thirds of the hummus-spread flatbread, as shown below.

STEP THREE:
Starting at the vegetable end, roll the lavash tightly, enclosing the vegetables within the lavash as shown. At this point, you can leave the lavash whole, if desired, and eat it as a wrap;How to make MEDITERRANEAN SPIRALS.

  • 4 pitted Kalamata olives, chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon finely minced parsley
  • 2 Tablespoons oil-free sun-dried tomatoes, chopped (optional)
  • 2 Tablespoons toasted pine nuts (optional)

Directions

  1. Finely dice the vegetables. Choose from seeded cucumber; red onion; red bell pepper; Kalamata olives; parsley;  sun-dried tomatoes. and whole toasted pine nuts.
  2. Take a whole wheat lavash bread (flatbread) and soften it in the microwave oven on high for about 20 seconds. (Lightly warmed flatbread will roll easier without cracking.) Working quickly, spread the warm lavash with with garlic hummus. Sprinkle your minced vegetables over two thirds of the hummus-spread lavash. (leaving one end with no toppings and just the hummus to help seal the spirals together when rolled.)
  3. Starting at the shorter vegetable end, roll the lavash tightly, enclosing the vegetables and hummus within the lavash. At this point, you can leave the lavash whole, if desired, and eat it as a wrap; Or, you can slice the lavash roll into one inch thick slices, to make spirals, as shown in the picture above.
  4. Put the spirals into a bag, or storage container with a lid, and place them into your lunchbox. (Spirals will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days, so why not make up another batch and pack 2 days worth of lunches at once, saving you time later!)
