Ingredients

  • 1 large eggplant (1 1/2 lb.), cut into 1/3-inch thick rounds
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 4 large whole-wheat pitas
  • 1 cup prepared hummus
  • 3 cups chopped lettuce

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 425F. Brush eggplant slices on both sides with oil and arange in single layer on baking sheet. Bake 15 minutes, turning slices over halfway through, so they brown on both sides.

2. Split each pita in half, forming 8 rounds. Spread hummus on each pita round, leaving 1-inch border around the edges. Divide eggplant among pitas; top with lettuce. Roll sandwich tightly, but not so tight that filling spills out. Wrap each roll in waxed paper, twisting ends to hold together. (Can be made 4 hours ahead and refrigerated.)

3. Just before eating, cut wraps in half diagonally with serrated knife and serve still in waxed paper.
