Now that Christmas has passed, I’m sure a lot of people are looking for healthier options for meals. Most likely there has been an abundance of cookies, comfort foods, yummy breakfast casseroles and all sorts of Christmas cheer over the last several weeks. And that’s ok! That’s what Christmas time is for ;)… but now it’s time to get back on track. Feel like your diet has been lacking in veggies? This Healthy Greek Veggie Wrap is a simple vegetarian lunch that you could whip up in a matter of minutes.
I have been obsessed with artichokes lately. They are such a unique and tasty veggie. They add such fun flavors to any dish. I made this very tasty and simple Sun-dried Tomato Artichoke Flatbread Pizza last week… if you’re also an artichoke lover and looking for veggie recipes check it out!

This Healthy Greek Veggie Wrap is LOADED with vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants. Most importantly it is seriously delicious. This veggie wrap is also rather low in calories which makes for a great lunch option for your weight loss plan. I have made this multiple times for both a quick and different lunch and dinner. My favorite version was when I added some lemon hummus to it — oh boy was that amazing.
The combo of the salty artichokes, melty mozzarella and feta cheeses mixed with the slightly sweet roasted red peppers all glued together with hummus in a low cal wrap was like almost too good to be true! The slightly crisp zucchini helped keep this little wrap all together. Either Roasted Red Pepper Hummus, regular garlic, or lemon are all good choices to use as the “glue” in your wrap.
I LOVE these Flat out wraps. They are perfect to get the fat out… ;). Haha – did you get what I did there? Flatouts get the fat out… (hey you gotta entertain yourself sometimes). But seriously, they only have 100 calories, 7 g protein, high in fiber, and have ingredients that you can actually pronounce! I also like their flavor and texture… different than the traditional “tortilla” (which keep in mind are usually not actually low in carb). In fact most of those tortilla actually have MORE carbs and calories than bread!
These Flatouts also contain flax – which is a bonus because typically our diets are lacking in omega 3 fatty acids and flax seeds are a great source!
Here is the simple recipe… as you know I love versatile recipes. Because as a busy workin momma I NEED flexibility in my life. If you don’t like one of the ingredients or don’t have something on hand… you can easily swap it out or leave it out altogether. Enjoy!
Healthy Greek Veggie Wrap
PACKED with veggies, therefore, packed with nutrients. This simple little wrap is the perfect healthy lunch option for weight loss.
- 1 Flatout Multigrain Flatbread or any flavor you desire
- 2 slices zucchini cut lengthwise
- 1/2 cup Red Pepper chopped
- 1/4 cup red onion sliced
- 1-2 tbsp feta cheese crumbles
- 1/4 cup artichoke hearts I used canned
- 2 Tbsp black olives
- 1-2 tbsp hummus I used lemon
- ~1/2 tbsp olive oil
- salt and pepper to taste
Wash your zucchini and red pepper. Slice your zucchini lengthwise from top to end until you have 2 nice slices about ~1/4 inch thick. Chop your red pepper and onion into slices or strips.
Heat a small amount of olive oil in medium sized pan on med heat. Saute your zucchini, onion, and red pepper for few minutes to soften slightly. Set aside on paper towel. Add salt and pepper to taste
Spread the hummus on half of your flatout wrap. Top with the zucchini, red pepper, onions. Add the artichoke hearts (quartered), black olives, and cheeses lastly.
Fold tightly and roll into wrap. Use additional hummus to keep edges together if necessary.
I browned all sides in pan with cooking spray to slightly crisp the outside and melt the cheeses. ~1 minute on each side. Enjoy!
I blotted the veggies after cooking and artichokes prior to putting into wrap to avoid the wrap from being too soggy. I highly suggest browning the outsides slightly as it gives the wrap awesome crispy yumminess.
