I’ve been on a pita kick lately, and with good reason.
You can use them to wrap meat and veggies at lunch, you can scramble some eggs, cheese and turkey in the morning and eat a breakfast pita, you can even use pitas as a crust for mini-pizzas.
All in all, a handy, nutritious, tasty food. Especially the whole wheat version. :-)
I’ve got a recipe I want to share with you for a Grilled Veggie & Yogurt Sauce Pita that is awesome…I urge to give this a try. It’s kind of tangy and has a Mediterranean taste to it. It’s great by it self or with a salad.
Man, when I eat things like this it’s hard to believe that I’m eating healthy!
GRILLED VEGGIE PITA WITH YOGURT SAUCE
1/4 cup low-fat yogurt
1/2 clove garlic
1 whole grain pita (7-inch)
1 1/2 ounces feta cheese
1/3 bell pepper
1/4 medium onion
Seasoning of your choice
Chop the cucumber into small pieces, mince the garlic, and combine both with the yogurt to make the yogurt sauce. Let that marinate for awhile, somewhere between an hour and overnight. And yes, it makes a difference — the longer it marinates, the better is tastes. Slice the pepper, carrot, and onion in thin strips and place them on the grill. Spray lightly with olive oil and the seasoning. Grill for 5 – 10 minutes, to your taste. During the last minute or so of grilling, warm up your pita. Spread the sauce on the pita, then pile on the grilled veggies, and top with crumbled feta.
