Grilled Harvest Wraps

Grilled Harvest Wraps

How many of you have overlooked some of the those summer zucchini (courgette) in your garden and now they could be used as floatation device?

Grilled Harvest Wraps

Don't you worry I have a fabulous way to celebrate the end of harvest vegetables. The fruits of your labours should be enjoyed while they are at their peak.

Grilled Harvest Wraps

Grilled harvest wraps are made with marinated grilled zucchini, eggplant, fresh tomatoes, balsamic onions topped with fresh buffalo mozzarella, fresh basil, marinated artichokes, rocket, hummus and red pepper pesto and wrapped in a garlic flat bread and then toasted lightly on the grill until the cheese melts.

Grilled Harvest Wraps

There is something wonderful about biting into that crispy wrap and then tasting the freshness of the garden in each bite and then as you pull away the long string of delicious melted cheese is what really makes these sandwiches delightful.

Grilled Harvest Wraps

I had a little gathering and laid out all of the ingredients in the kitchen and let everyone assemble their own wrap and then put them on the BBQ grill to toast. This is a very fun activity with only a little prep work and clean up is a snap. Each guests can make it just the way they like it with their choice of ingredients. The choice of ingredients is wide as your imagination and your garden or market potential.

Grilled Harvest Wraps

Maybe, you would also like to add some grilled chicken or skirt steak to your choices for the meat eaters in the bunch. Maybe you would like to add some different assortment of cheeses like feta or grilled peppers or other veggies from your garden. I think you see where I am going with this, just add anything your little heart desires.

Grilled Harvest Wraps

As you know, I am gluten-free girl so I swapped out gluten-free corn tortillas for the garlic flour tortillas. If your lactose intolerant, add hummus to your wrap to give it some extra protein instead of cheese.

Grilled Harvest Wraps

My only suggestion is that you do not use really wet vegetables as they will make your sandwich soggy. If you want to use tomatoes, then use Roma sliced ultra thin or de-seed your juicy tomatoes before using.

My red pepper pesto is really delightful in this dish. http://bamskitchen.com/dietary-restrictions/glutenfree/caramelized-red-pepper-pesto-steak/. Please head on over to Sandra's site for two great hummus recipes. http://www.thefoodieaffair.com/2013/02/19/hummus-basic-and-spinach/

Grilled Harvest Wraps

I served my wraps along side a refreshing watermelon, cucumber and mint salad. Another great side would be some sweet succulent sweet corn grilled on the BBQ with chilli lime butter.

Back about 2 years ago,  please pardon my early sad photos, but the chili lime corn on the cob recipe is really delicious http://bamskitchen.com/sides/vegetables/juicy-teriyaki-burgers-and-buttery-chili-lime-corn-on-cob/

Grilled Harvest Wraps

Let send off summer with a big bang with a delightful end of the harvest grilled veggie wrap party. However, don't delay as there is still time if you want to sell those oversized zucchini to the coast guards to use as lifesaving devices.

Grilled Harvest Wraps

By HWC Magazine  , , , ,

August 26, 2013

Grilled harvest wraps are made with marinated grilled zucchini, eggplant, fresh tomatoes, balsamic onions topped with fresh buffalo mozzarella, fresh basil, marinated artichokes, rocket, hummus and red pepper pesto and wrapped in a garlic flat bread and then toasted lightly on the grill until the cheese melts.

  • Cook: 1 hr
  • Yields: 6 Adults or 1 Hungry Teenager

Ingredients

zucchini (courgette) - 1 sliced on an angle about 1/2 inch thick

eggplant - 1 sliced on an angle about 1/2 inch thick -I used an Asian eggplant

olive oil - 1/2 cup

Tuscan seasoning - 1 teaspoon (dried basil, oregano, rosemary, dried garlic, dried red peppers)

salt and pepper - to taste

fresh mozzarella cheese - 1 large round cut into thin slices (also try feta, gouda, swiss, etc)

basil - 1 large bunch fresh leaves ( washed and removed from stem)

pickled balsamic onions - 4 ounces- cut in half or quarters (http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/7723/balsamic-pickled-shallots)

artichokes - 8 ounces marinated in olive oil and herbs

rocket - large handful washed

tomatoes - 2 roma tomatoes cut ultra thin

red pepper and caramelized onion pesto - 8 ounces (1 cup) http://bamskitchen.com/dietary-restrictions/glutenfree/caramelized-red-pepper-pesto-steak/

hummus - 8 ounces (1 cup) http://www.thefoodieaffair.com/2013/02/19/hummus-basic-and-spinach/

flour tortilla - 1 package (I used garlic flat breads)

corn tortilla - 1 package (optional)

egg - 1 beaten

olive oil - 1/4 cup

Directions

1Place your sliced zucchini and eggplant slices in a plastic baggie with olive oil, Tuscan seasoning and salt and pepper to taste. Seal and shake to distribute marinade to all the vegetables. (If you want to add other veggies on the grill such as onions, bell peppers, etc, add them to the marinade.) Preheat your grill.

2Gather and prepare all your supplies and place them in little bowls or dishes for the party so that your guests can make their own wrap sandwiches. Set out slices of fresh mozzarella cheese, fresh basil leaves, pickled balsamic onions (store bought or home made http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/7723/balsamic-pickled-shallots), marinated artichokes quartered, large handful of fresh rocket, ultra thin slices of roma tomatoes, red pepper and caramelised onion pesto, hummus and tortillas or flat breads of choice, beaten egg and olive oil for brushing the wrap before grilling. (These are just suggestions so add anything your little heart desires)

3Grill your marinated zucchini, eggplant and other vegetables until fork tender and have nice grill marks. Set you grilled vegetables out with your other topping for your grilled harvest wraps.

4Assemble your wraps. Microwave, for 15 seconds, your flour or corn tortilla or flat bread so that it is warm and easier to fold. Set your wrap on plate or a clean counter and add your hummus, red pepper caramelised onion pesto, toasted vegetables, cheese, artichokes, pickled balsamic onions, fresh herbs, rocket and really anything your little heart desires. However, just be careful that you do not make it too full as then it becomes difficult to wrap up. Brush the outer ring around the tortilla with egg wash to help seal the edges. Fold up your wrap like a burrito. Start at one end and fold up end over fillings. Fold in the sides to the centre and then roll all the way up. You may need to add more egg wash at the end just to help the ends seal. Brush your wrap on all sides with a little olive oil.

5Grill the wrap for about 2 minutes on each side just until the cheese melts and you have nice grill marks on both sides.

6Enjoy while warm-hot off the grill.

  • I want to come over to your house! Your wraps look wonderful and sound delicious :). No sad photos!

  • This wrap looks delicious–I love all the ingredients in it!

  • Eha

    Oh yummy, this truly is ‘my’ kind of food 🙂 ! I have no gluten or other intolerance problems and I am not a vegetarian, but aim for 2-3 vegetarian mains every week! We are so lucky in Australia, as beautiful local eggplants and zucchini are available year round [even now at the tail end of winter]. Letting everyone makee their own has always worked out well with me too. Possibly partly because of our quite large and growing Middle Eastern population there are so many kinds of flatbreads, wraps, tortillas and mountain breads available . . .no lack of choice in the smallest hamlet or supermarket 🙂 ! Warm greetings, Bobbi, from a springlike Australia and thanks!

    • Bams Kitchen

      Hello Eha and a warm greetings from hot and steamy Hong Kong! I really love eggplants grilled or baked or really anyway you name it. I forget all about meat when you have such an abundance of fresh veggies to choose from. As you remember, the markets in HK have produce from all over the world so at times we can enjoy many fresh veggies once they come to port. I would love to have access to a Middle Eastern market as I love the spices. I can’t enjoy all the flat breads like I used to but that does not mean that I have stop making them for my family.(PS: I have tried some of the gluten free wraps and they are just down right disgusting, cardboard might be a better alternative.HaHaha I guess that is a mission for me to perfect a gluten free non-cardboard wrap in Bam’s test kitchen. Have a super week and take care, BAM

  • Really Tempting……..Love this zucchini cooked……….Wanna have this……….

  • Great way to use zucchini! Wraps are great, and it’s so nice to stuff them with fresh veggies. Love the combo of flavors you came up with. The red pepper and caramelized onion pesto would be sensational in this. Truly good stuff – thanks.

  • These look seriously delicious BAM!

  • Love your roasted vegetables wrap that is grilled!

  • These look fantastic BAM 🙂

  • Buona notte, BAM! Do these ever sound good! As big a carnivore as I am, I would definitely enjoy the meatless version of these wraps. With so many vegetables at there peak, I’d rather take advantage of the bounty. There’ll be plenty of time for meat dishes come November and beyond. Besides, these wraps are so filling, a slice of beef or piece of chicken would be gilding the lily. 🙂 Have a great week, BA!

  • I want to eat in your home, You always have these most wonderful ideas!
    🙂 Mandy xo

  • Maureen | Orgasmic Chef

    I like that you not only roasted the vegetables, you roasted the wrap as well. I love it!

  • abby

    I have to try it this weekend! I am looking for more delicious veggie meals and this looks so good. I love zucchini. I love grilled veggies with Zucchini. They are so so good!

  • Those look fantastic & I’m imagining the cheese all melty….I’d load mine up with every single thing if the wrap would handle it all. Okay I’d pass on the hummus but I’m glad you did suggest tofu in there 🙂

  • Oh my, these look awesome! My parents grow zucchini and I think no matter how many times you check, there is always one “little” guy that goes unseen until somehow the size of a club 🙂

  • My daughter would love this. We did let our zucchini get like flotation devices but fortunately they were still usable. 🙂

  • A delightful sandwich indeed. I am sure your guest enjoyed making their own customized sandwiches, what fun.

  • These wraps remind me of the summer time – they look absolutely great!

  • Mmmm, courgette is my favorite. You can use it in everything else, including eating it raw as pasta.

  • You know when you’re in love with a dish, when you look at it through the photos and start licking your lips preparing to eat it even though you don’t have it in front of you LOL. Yeah, I did that lol

  • Any fresh igedients brings a good meals for sure…..
    i think dipped in hot, spicy and tangy tomato and chillies based would be lovely within the wraps

  • I love all the ingredients, this wrap looks really yummy!

  • I must try making it. i love wrap.

  • Bam, these grilled wraps are such fun! I love these get-togethers, where you have lots of fun, spend quality time with friends and eat good food!
    Oh, how I wished I had a garden full of veggies and fruits. It is just a dream in desely populated Mumbai, you know. Lucky you. Gardening is also a great stress-buster. Looking at those garden babies makes us feel so happy and content!

    I loved this recipe. Fabulous!

  • Two things came up for me here, BAM. First, I have 5-6 big lengthwise slices of zucchini to use up. You saved them! Tomorrow I’ll get out my George Foreman grill and grill them up. The other thing is, I looked back at the post about Chili Lime Corn on the Cob. Yeah, I know what you mean about the pictures. Wow, back then, you didn’t even get comments! And look where you are now, practically famous. Did you know that you, CCU and I all started our blogs about the same time?

  • Liz

    OH, YUM! I have some fresh mozz in the fridge, tomatoes, hummus and tortillas…I will make something wonderful for my lunch tomorrow. Why have I never thought of grilling a wrap? Love it!!!

  • Love this idea! I guess this is a very underrated vegetable. Have to make this as well as my moms zucchini bread, zucchini is statting to show up in the supermarket lately.

  • Those are pretty awesome grill marks there ! Love the layering of those vegetables that all work so well together.

  • hotlyspiced

    What a yummy wrap. I love all of the ingredients and they would work so well together. Love how you toasted the wrap too. What a great lunch xx

  • YUM!!!

    I will have to go and plant some zucchini 🙂

  • Amazing wrap, healthy and tasty.
    Love the idea of the melon cucumber mint salad as a side dish. Sounds so refreshing!

  • I enjoy cooking with zucchini a lot but have never tried adding them in wraps! That’s such a brilliant idea, Bam!

  • Wow, these look like restaurant-quality wraps! I have not eaten NEARLY enough zucchini this summer–these look fantastic.

  • Anything with hummus and grilled veggies gets my vote! The mozzarella looks gorgeous too… all oozy and delicious – looks lovely Bam!

  • This is a wonderful idea, Bam! I often don’t know how to finish tortillas (come in big package) but I actually love to make this first before fajita night! Great use of hummus, cheese and veggies here.

  • Um, yeah… these look pretty much amazing. The tortillas look excellently crispy, it’s making my full stomach hungry again!
