Ingredients

    Broccoli, fresh, 1 cup, chopped
    Cauliflower, raw, .5 cup
    Carrots, raw, .25 cup, grated
    Cabbage, fresh, .25 cup, shredded
    Onions, raw, .25 cup, sliced
    Bread, pita, whole-wheat, 1 pita, large (6-1/2" dia)
    Kraft Mayo Light Mayonnaise (Mayo), 1 tbsp
    Dill Pickles, 1 spear
    Romaine Lettuce (salad), 0.5 cup, shredded
    Alfalfa sprouts, .5 cup
    Sweet Baby Ray's Honey Barbeque Sauce, .25 tbsp
    Canola Oil, 1 tsp

Directions

This recipe is from Fit for Life page 206 serves 1.

Prepare vegetables
Cut broccoli into small pieces using only florets and upper portions of stalk. Break cauliflower into tiny florets. Combine broccoli and cauliflower - steam. In a separate container shred carrots, cabbage, and lettuce. Add Sprouts. Slice pickle into 3 or 4 slivers set aside.

Barbecued Onions
Slice one whole onion. Heat oil in skillet, add onion and saute. And bbq sauce and saute for about 3 minutes. Adjust bbq sauce as needed. Set aside.

Assemble the sandwich
Heat the pita in the oven and make a small slit in top if there isn't one there already. Spread pita pocket with mayo. Combine all vegetables (except onions) and stuff into pocket. Layer with onions and pickle slices. Sprinkle with salt or salt free seasoning if desired.

I know this looks like a lot veggies to stuff into a pocket but it really fits! You have to shove it in though - make sure not to bust the pita! Wrap entire sandwich in plastic wrap so you don't lose all of the veggies and sauce. This sandwich may be a lot of work but it is nearly 3 servings of veggies for the day. Very healthy. The original recipe calls for yellow squash and an optional avocado although I never included them.

Enjoy!

    A winner every time I've served it! The NY Goodwich sandwich is incredibly tasty, healthy and has won over even die-hard meat eaters. Tip: Don't toast or overheat the pita or it will crack and all the delicious juice will drip out! - 2/7/10
