I love sandwiches, but hate the carbs! Lavash is a soft, thin unleavened flatbread, which is not only low in carbs, but it contains no fat. Lavash, like a tortilla is a perfect wrap for any sandwich or burrito without the carbs. In fact, you can use Lavash for pizzas, or tacos.
Instead of eating roasted vegetables in a bowl, adding them to a sandwich gives them a wonderful crunch. For this particular sandwich I used a little hummus, but you could use a bean spread, smashed avocado, or a vegan pesto.
Although I use my panini maker to grill my sandwiches, you can also grill in a large skillet without oil, or an outdoor grill. The vegetables you choose are up to you. I picked vegetables I had on hand in my refrigerator.
I chose a combination of raw and roasted vegetables. The spinach I used, for instance, was raw, as were the shredded carrots, and tomatoes. The broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini, and yellow squash, and onion were roasted together.
Not only is this a quick dinner, you can actually roast the vegetables in advance. When you grill your sandwich, the contents will heat up.
Try this low carb, crunchy sandwich stuffed with roasted and raw vegetables with a smear of hummus.
- 2 Vegan Lavash Wraps (I bought mine at Trader Joes)
- 1/2 cup broccoli florets
- 1/2 cup chopped cauliflower
- 1/2 cup yellow onion
- 1/2 cup yellow squash
- 1/2 cup zucchini
- 1 cup raw spinach
- 1/2 cup diced tomato
- 1/2 cup shredded carrots
- 1/4 cup hummus (I used plain oil-free, but you can choose your flavor)
- Preheat your oven to 400 degrees
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat
- Chop broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini, yellow squash, and onion in similar sizes because you will be roasting them together.
- Toss the chopped vegetables in garlic powder, onion powder, pepper and salt
- Put in a single layer on the baking sheet.
- Bite sized pieces will roast in 30 minutes; the smaller you cut the vegetables, the quicker they will roast, so watch them carefully.
- In the meantime, chopped tomatoes and spinach into smaller pieces; set aside
- Removed vegetables from oven, and allow them o cool enough to touch.
- Pre-heat the panini maker, grill or skillet (you do not need oil)
- Using the lavash on a flat surface, put a thin layer of hummus on the base of the bread through the middle.
- Add raw vegetables first: Spinach, carrots, and tomatoes (they provide a barrier for the roasted vegetables, so you can roll your lavash without it breaking from the moisture in the cooked vegetables.
- Roll it like a tortilla, tucking one side in first before tightly rolling.
- Place on panini maker and grill on medium low until toasted.
- Cut and serve.
- I served on the side with a salad.
