Baba ghanouj wraps with marinated tomatoes on Meatless Monday

This traditional eggplant spread is a savory filling for romaine lettuce leaves; paired with fresh, marinated tomatoes, it's a delicious light lunch with plenty of flavor. You can use ground cumin instead of toasting and grinding your own, but it's well worth the tradeoff in time if you want to take that step. This recipe was adapted from Forks Over Knives: The Cookbook.
