These Mediterranean Pinwheels are a super easy and ultimately delicious snack and party food. Made with tomatoes, artichokes, and olives, they get their awesome flavor kick by the homemade Tahini sauce. All vegan and gluten free.
Note: I made this recipe right after my move from Germany to the Netherlands, and here is part of my thoughts about the situation at time:
Friends, I’m still here! Yeah, I managed to get through the move in one piece. I’m right now sitting in a furnished apartment that will be my home for – hopefully – two months until the permanent home that is still under construction is finished.
Keep your fingers crossed that there will be no delays!
The place itself is quite ok – a bit small but bright and at a quiet street. The atmosphere is pretty relaxed and the people seem friendly so far. It’s a good start.
Would be better even if the hot water was running for longer than one minute and the drain in the kitchen sink wasn’t blocked…
Anyways, in spite of this little drama, I still made a quick recipe for you – even before unpacking all my things that didn’t go into storage: Mediterranean Pinwheels.
I just made a quick visit to the nearest supermarket (which had a surprisingly good selection, need to explore it more) and bought some cherry tomatoes, olives, artichokes, and lettuce. Some tahini as well as tortillas.
First, I whisked together a tahini sauce (yeah, you know I LOVE it) with some white vinegar and lemon juice. Adding some water to make it smoother, and garlic, salt, and pepper for taste – done.
That’s all one needs to prepare for the pinwheels, except for cutting the vegetables. I spread a spoonful of the tahini sauce on one tortilla, distributed the veggies and a handful of lettuce on top.
Rolling it tightly and cutting the roll into slices finishes the Mediterranean Pinwheels.
So simple and beautiful. And now, I can start unpacking. 😉
