Mediterranean Warm Roasted Vegetable Wrap Preparation

Preheat oven to 425 F. In a bowl combine the oil, garlic, salt, and pepper. Lay all the vegetables in an oiled baking pan, pour in the oil mixture, and toss, taking care to coat each strip. Bake, turning once, until the vegetables are slightly charred and tender, about 40 minutes. Sprinkle with a little balsamic vinegar to taste. Cool slightly; the vegetables should be warm, not hot.

Spread the hummus on the warmed tortillas, lay the raw spinach on the hummus and top with the roasted vegetables. Roll up the tortillas and tuck in the ends. Serve immediately.
