This easy vegan Grilled Vegetable Wrap Sandwich is made even better with a smear of hummus and a sprinkle of fresh basil. It’s perfect for Meatless Monday!

If I was ever struck with the urge to open up a lunchtime cafe, this grilled vegetable wrap sandwich would be the first thing on the menu. It’s that good. And it only took about two neurons to figure out how to put it together. Because it’s that easy. And in the description of my fake restaurant’s menu, I’d be sure to mention that it’s vegan, too.

I never used to be an eggplant fan, unless it was drenched in a creamy béchamel sauce in a Greek moussaka. That is, until I tried grilling it. First came the Grilled Zucchini & Eggplant Parmesan {Vegetarian}, which is a much healthier and less time-intensive than the original version. I was already sold, but then the fresh flavors of my Grilled Eggplant & Zucchini Salad with Feta, Chickpeas & Mint really sealed the deal.

Of course, if eggplant really isn’t your thing, regardless of how it’s cooked and seasoned, then swap it out for some other vegetables. You could replace it with yellow summer squash, orange bell pepper or some grilled onions (ooo, now that would be really good!)

But if you are not sure whether or not you like eggplant, I urge you to give this a try. When seasoned with crushed rosemary, salt and pepper, and grilled until tender, the flavor becomes miraculously mellow and completely alluring.

I cheated and used store-bought hummus to smear on the tortillas. If you feel so inclined to make your own hummus, then go for it! A flavored hummus, such as roasted red pepper or roasted garlic would add another punch of flavor.

And what if you don’t really care whether or not your sandwich is vegan and you really can’t imagine eating a wrap sandwich without cheese? Sprinkle in some crumbled feta cheese.

In other words, this wrap sandwich is customizable to the nth degree, which makes it perfect for a last-minute “clear out the fridge” kind of lunch or dinner.

Note: For wraps and burritos, we typically buy the large size low carb, high fiber whole wheat tortillas from La Tortilla Factory that we find at Costco. Each tortilla only has 80 calories and 3 grams of fat, but also packs 12 grams of fiber and 8 grams of protein. The nutritional information listed below is calculated using these tortillas.

I’ve had a random hankering to make something with eggplant – even though I haven’t actually ever cooked it! And, then you posted these…perfect! Pinned :D

This sounds scrumptious! Just a quick editorial note: I assume you mean 1/4 cup hummus (not tsp) and then Step 6 is to spread 1 tbs on each tortilla? In any case, can’t wait to try this! Maybe tomorrow’s lunch. Thanks!

Thank you for catching that, Rachel! Yes, it is supposed to read 1/4 cup (updated now). I hope you enjoy this!

Love this combination of veggies, and if they are grilled there even better. I make a salad like this except use sun dried tomatoes instead of the red peppers. Gorgeous Dara!

That sounds wonderful, Cheri! Any sun-dried or grilled vegetables add wonderful flavor to any recipe.

I love eggplant. I am glad you became a believer. Isn’t it amazing how good veggie wraps and sandwiches can be. I don’t why, but I am always surprised. Probably leftover from kid talk about ick vegetables. The basil leaves really add a snap. Its amazing how much flavor you can get from a couple of leaves.

Dara,
This looks like a terrific simple summer supper, once our CSA farm share is giving us boxes of veggies each week.
Thanks!
