Eggplant, Heirloom Tomatoes and Olive Wraps

I am excited to post this wrap today. It has ingredients I do not normally combine. The summer has been very hot so far and no one is hungry for the same old recipes. Coming up with new combinations to the same recipes is a fun way to tackle the summer woes. I had bought a shiny fresh eggplant to make eggplant chips. I decided to present these in a wrap as opposed to having them as a side. I had heirloom tomatoes and they go well with eggplant. Next I chose olives and feta cheese. Not sure why I put these together other than a feeling that they would all go well together. The wraps made for a nice weekend lunch and were very filling.


I am not a fan of eggplant. It cooks up mushy and I have problems with mushy texture. My husband and daughter love it. When they feel like eating eggplant they buy, cook and eat it. I usually have nothing to do with the whole process. The only two recipes I make with eggplant are the eggplant chips with the large eggplant and the stuffed mini eggplants (bharli vangi).

You will need
whole wheat poli/chapati
20 eggplant chips (a large long eggplant)
2 large heirloom tomato, sliced
10-12 olives, sliced
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese

Using a large shiny fresh eggplant prepare the eggplant chips. You could skip the besan in the linked eggplant chips recipe and cook it sprinkled with salt, pepper and cayenne pepper. Keep aside. Slice the tomatoes, use heirloom tomatoes if possible. Slice the olives. You can use green or black olives.


Assemble the wraps. Heat the fully cooked poli on a hot griddle. This makes the poli less prone to tearing. Layer the eggplant over the bread. place the tomato slices and add the olives and feta cheese. Wrap it up and secure with a toothpick.


Enjoy!

  6. this is where my pickiness comes in. My food dislikes are very commonly liked by others like avocado, olives as well as feta and eggplant. But I know this combination would be much loved by most so I would definitely make it for the Vegetarians when I'm party hosting
