Veggie Hummus Stuffed Pita Pockets

Submitted by: RUBY214

Introduction

Easy & simple throw together vegetarian lunch or light dinner. I like the Joseph's brand of middle eastern products. They are lower in cals, fat, & sodium than their competitors and I find them to be very tasty. This throw together recipe creates a very nice sized sandwich. It is very filling and is packed with fiber, vitamins, & minerals that we need. You may decide that you only want to use a 1/2 cup of spinach to make the sandwich more manageable. I like all the nutrients 1 cup of spinach gives me and, after I squeeze the water out, the bulkiness of the spinach is greatly reduced.

You can easily split this with someone, cutting your nutritional info in half. Add some fresh cut fruit for dessert and you have a wonderfully satisfying and nutrtionally rich meal.

I forgot to take a picture so you can see the layering and how appetizing it is. I will upload it in a couple of days when I make another one.

Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    1 Joseph's Flax, Oat Bran & Whole Wheat Flour Pita Bread
    1 cup baby Spinach
    4 thin Tomato slices
    2 scallions, chopped & diced
    2 radishes, chopped & diced
    1/4 cup English Cucumber w/skin on, chopped & dice
    4 Tbsp Joseph's Vegetable Hommus Tahini (regular vegetable NOT the Roasted Vegetable which has higher calorie & fat content)
    2 Tbsp Joseph's Taboule Salad

Directions

Cut the pita in half which creates two pockets of bread ready for filling. Wash baby spinach and squeeze dry with paper towels. Make sure you get all the moisture out.
Slice tomato.
Set all of the above to the side.

Chop and dice scallions, radishes, and cuke, placing all in small bowl. Add the hummus & taboule. Mix all together to create a "salad paste."

Stuff each pita half with the spinach, tomato slices & veggie "salad paste" (making sure all ingredients are evenly distributed between the two pockets).

Done. :o)
