Lebanese Wrap Libanais

Here is a Lebanese sandwich easy and quick to assemble as long as you have all the elements that compose it on hand!

Express leftovers!

When I prepare a Lebanese mezze meal, I expressly overdo it. These leftovers, or rather these extras, serve as accompaniments or as items ready to add to other meals. It becomes easy and quick to prepare. Some extras serve me as dips to accompany raw vegetables. No matter how I reuse them, they are particularly practical and versatile.

A Wrap express sandwich

For a quick lunch, these extras make up a super tasty and fulfilling “wrap” sandwich.

To make it, you need:

  • 1 Lebanese pita bread
  • 3 to 5 falalfels
  • 1-2 spoons baba ganouj
  • 1-2 spoons humus
  • 60 to 80ml chickpeas
  • 1-2 spoons shiklish (spicy cheese)
  • 3-4 spoons tabbouleh
  • 1 handful of pomegranate seeds

  1. Reheat the falafels.
  2. On the Lebanese pita bread, spread hummus on one half and on the other, spread Baba Ganouj.
  3. Sprinkle the chickpeas all over the bread.
  4. Put the shiklish (cheese) in the center and on each side, the tabbouleh.
  5. Sprinkle the pomegranate seeds.
  6. Add the falafels (hot) in the center, over the cheese.
  7. Roll to close the wrap.

Voici un sandwich libanais facile et rapide à assembler pour autant que tu aies tous les éléments qui le compose sous la main!

Des restes exprès!

Lorsque je prépare un repas de mezzé libanais, j’en fait expressément de trop. Ces restes, ou plutôt ces extras, me servent comme accompagnements ou éléments prêts à ajouter dans d’autres repas. Cela devient facile et rapide à préparer. Certains extras me servent comme trempettes pour accompagner des crudités. Peut importe la façon dont je les réutilise, ils sont particulièrement pratiques et versatiles.

  • 1-2 cuillères shiklish (fromage épicé)

Lebanese leftover Bowl

I love using leftovers to make lunch. It creates beautiful, colourful and tasteful Bowls.

At our house, we love making Lebanese mezze from scratch. I try to make a little more so I can use leftovers to build Buddha bowls the following days. We usually make hummus, tabouleh, baba ghanouj, shanklish, foul m’damme, labneh or tzaziki, lamb and/or chicken brochette.

Here, in this leftover bowl, I had some tabouleh, hummous and foul.

I first put some fresh spinach and then added the three leftovers. Then added homemade broccoli sprouts, an avocado, slices of black radish and drizzled cold press olive oil. Accompanied by my flax and sesame seeds crackers.

Here are the recipes for those three leftovers I had.

To make tabouleh, you need

250ml dry quinoa

1 large bunch parsley chopped (remove long stems)

80ml mint leaves chopped

250ml of grape or cherry tomatoes cut in half (optional)

¼ of a yellow or white onion finely diced

1 garlic clove minced

15ml olive oil

juice of one lemon

salt and pepper to taste

Make quinoa according to package instructions

While quinoa is cooking prepare rest of the ingredients in a bowl

When quinoa is finished cooking combine all ingredients together and stir

To make hummous, you need

450g cooked Chickpeas

2 cloves garlic, minced

7ml salt

75ml freshly squeezed lemon juice

65ml water or better, aquafaba

85 ml tahini, stirred well

65 ml extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra for serving

Powdered sumac, optional

Place the chickpeas, garlic, and kosher salt in the bowl of a food processor. Process for 15 to 20 seconds. Stop, scrape down the sides of the bowl, and process for another 15 to 20 seconds. Add the lemon juice and water. Process for 20 seconds. Add the tahini. Process for 20 seconds, then scrape down the sides of the bowl. With the processor running, drizzle in the olive oil.

To serve, transfer the hummus to a bowl and drizzle with additional olive oil and sprinkle with sumac, to taste, if desired.

To make foul m’damme, you need

1 can of cooked beans/legumes (I like white beans)

1 onion

2 tomatoes

5ml salt

15ml of cumin powder

1/2 lemon

30ml of tahini (sesame purée)

30ml olive oil

Dice onion and tomatoes. Add salt, cumin, lemon juice, tahini over cooked and rinsed beans with tomatoes and onion. Mix all ingredients.

Serve in a bowl and drizzle extra olive oil.

Bon appétit!
