Middle Eastern Pinwheels
The flavors of the Middle East, rolled into every bite.
1. Lay the lavash on a clean, flat work surface.
2. Use a spatula or the back of a large spoon to spread the Classic Hummus over the whole surface of the lavash.
Lavash is a flat bread commonly found in countries in and around the Middle East. It originated in either Armenia or Iran and is used to scoop or wrap up food. Click here to see how lavash is made in a tandoor. Yum!
3. Lay the spinach leaves in one even layer over the bottom 3/4 of the lavash.
4. Lay the tomato slices horizontally in an even layer over the bottom 3/4 of the lavash. (Horizontal will make it easier to roll up your pinwheel at the end.)
5. Lay the strips of chicken horizontally in an even layer over the bottom 3/4 of the lavash.
6. You are ready to roll! Start where the ingredients go all the way to the end of the lavash and begin to roll the lavash up from the bottom, rolling all the ingredients inside as you go. A nice, tight roll will produce beautiful pinwheels.
7. When you have finished rolling, lay the roll with the seam on the bottom. Choose a serrated knife to cut your roll into pinwheels. (A serrated knife has a jagged blade rather than a smooth blade.)
Make slices all the way through the roll, about an inch wide. To make beautiful pinwheels, gently but steadily draw the knife back and forth over the roll, allowing it to fall through the layers as it goes. Gentle pressure should be enough to cut through the layers without smashing everything down into a mess.
8. Carefully lay the slices on their sides to serve.
9. Your Middle Eastern Pinwheels are ready!
