Eggplant Hummus Wraps With Smoky Tomato Confit [Vegan, Grain-Free]
For the Hummus:
- 1 can chickpeas
- 2 tablespoons liquid from canned chickpeas (or water)
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 2 tablespoons tahini
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 garlic clove
- 1/4 teaspoon cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
For the Eggplant Wraps:
- 2 large eggplants
- 1/2 cup pitted, chopped Kalamata olives or olive tapenade
- 1 cup hummus
- 1/2 cup smoky tomato confit (recipe below)
- 1/2 cup olive oil
For the Smoky Tomato Confit:
- 1 pound cherry tomatoes
- 2-3 tablespoons smoked olive oil or regular olive oil
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 tablespoon dried oregano leaves
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
Make the Hummus:
In the bowl of your food processor, add all ingredients for the hummus, and process for a minute, until smooth. Add more lemon juice or water, if too thick.
Make the Smoky Tomato Confit:
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Cut the cherry tomatoes in half, and mix with the olive oil, and spices. Spread on a baking tray, lined with parchment paper, and roast for about an hour.
- Let cool, and store in a glass jar. Make a double dose and use the rest in salads.
Make the Eggplant Wraps:
- Cut off the sides from each eggplant vertically and cut the flesh into 4 1/4-inch thick slices, for a total of 8 slices. Sprinkle with salt liberally, and leave in a colander for 15-20 minutes until they release their dark, bitter liquid. Rinse, and pat dry.
- Brush the eggplant pieces liberally with olive oil on both sides and sprinkle again with salt.
- Preheat your grill on high, or oven broiler, and cook the eggplant pieces for about 5 minutes per side, or until very soft, and charred on the outside. Let the eggplants cool completely.
- Cut the Kalamata olives into small pieces.
- Assemble the eggplant wraps by spreading 2-3 tablespoons of the hummus, top with 2 tablespoons roasted tomatoes, and 1-2 tablespoons of the chopped Kalamata olives. Secure with a toothpick or serve wrapped in lettuce leaves for easy picking.
- Optionally, add pita chip pieces in each wrap for added crunch and flavor.
