OR 1 cup "hearty stew"

1 eggplant (1 pound), cut into 1/4-inch thick slices, then each slice cut in half

2 small (or 1 extra large) red, yellow, or orange bell peppers, stem and seeds removed, cut into strips about 1 inch wide, then each strips cut into 3 pieces

1 red onion, quartered and cut into bite-size pieces

2 yellow squash or zucchini, cut into 1/4-inch thick slices

5 teaspoons olive oil

1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning blend (or similar)

Salt and pepper (optional)

Canola or olive oil cooking spray

6 ounces light goat cheese (with 3.5 grams fat per ounce), use spreadable type if possible

6 whole-wheat tortillas (whole-wheat pita pockets can be substituted)

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a jellyroll pan with foil and coat the foil with canola or olive oil cooking spray.
  • Add vegetables, olive oil and Italian seasoning to a large bowl and toss to coat vegetables well. Add a sprinkling or two of salt and pepper, if desired. Pour mixture onto prepared pan and coat top with canola or olive oil cooking spray. Roast about 30 minutes.
  • Gently turn over vegetables and roast about 20 minutes more. Meanwhile, spread about 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) of the goat cheese over the top of each tortilla. Crisp the bottom of the tortilla by placing in toaster oven and pressing "toast," or warming in a nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat until bottom is nicely browned.
  • When vegetables are done, top each toasted tortilla with an assortment of the roasted vegetables (about 3/4 cup each). Cut each tortilla into 4 wedges.
