I don’t even know if it’s really called Fajitas, on the package it says “Tortilla”. In short, they’re kind of pancakes like that but closer to bread than pancakes, and we roll them with all kinds of good things in them. So this is it! One of our nutritherapy soon-to-be-graduate, Manon Coirre, has created a great bilingual blog with this recipe idea for this month: Grilled Vegetable Wraps! Even if I’m not even close to finish off my list of sugar-free recipes, I figured this would make a little break, although it is of course also sugar free. So, it was very quiet at the table yesterday, everyone was busy with their fajitas, trying to eat it without the food coming out from the other side … a real success! (I measure my culinary success by the words spoken at the meal. If I have a total of 3 words like “it’s delicious mom” then I know I’ve got a winner).
In short, I present to you the Wraps of Manon, or for the AMCC we will call them the Magical Fajitas (from the magical silence at the table).
Ingredients and Recipe
Step 1: bake the following vegetables (cut into strips beforehand):
- 2 zucchini
- 2 eggplants
- 2 peppers (let’s say one red and one yellow)
- a red onion
with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, garlic powder and your choice of spices: oregano, paprika, pepper and salt.
30 minutes in the oven at 100 degrees celcius.
Step 2: as a condiment, Manon offers us a turmeric / lemon humus. With us we love humus so I wasn’t going to miss the chance to make a new version! I think the secret of this recipe is to roast the lemon for 10 minutes in the oven before draining its juice into the humus mixture! Indeed, in the blender to mix this juice (we press once the lemon has cooled!) With a tin of chickpeas (rinsed and drained). We also add:
- 2 cloves garlic
- 5 tablespoons of tahini (sesame paste)
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- a little turmeric, curry, salt and pepper
Mix everything for 2-3 minutes and add water as needed. Then we spread the humus on the fajitas / tortilla with the grilled vegetables on top. You can add pieces of chicken, tofu or feta, or even olives, sundried tomatoes or alfalfa.
Here is the beautiful photo of Manon, I specify that she lives in Tahiti (is that why her fajitas are more colorful than mine?).
Mine looked like tree trunks, which ties in with our theme of the month: wood. You can see in the back some sweet potatoes fries I used as a side-dish.
