In general, I'm not a huge fan of sandwiches. So often, there is too much bread for my taste. I prefer open faced sandwiches. However, one day while I was studying for my Step 1 exam I found a whole wheat pita pocket bread on sale. I decided to try it out. They were pretty good.
For the past 12 weeks, I've been on my surgery rotation and you really need something quick and easy for lunch, especially if you take your own instead of buying something. I always take my lunch, it's much cheaper! Anyway, I wanted something other than salads and determined that these pita pockets would provide a perfect option...but what to put inside? Let's see...pita...hummus! What else is mediterranean?...Feta cheese...red bell pepper. I had a lunch coming together. My favorite way to put this sandwich together is to spread the inside of the pita with some sort of hummus. Then line/stuff the bottom of the pita with spinach. On top of that place some roasted veggies (see below). Top with turkey and feta cheese. Enjoy this sandwich with some fresh fruit and you have a nice, healthy lunch. With the roasted veggies, this is full of antioxidants. So, this is my entry for Sweetnick's ARF-Tuesday. Check her site for more great recipes.
Your choice of fresh vegetables: onion, bell pepper (I like red), eggplant, squash, zucchini
olive oil Cut veggies in thin slices. Preheat oven to 425. Place veggies in a roasting pan. Drizzle with a small amount of olive oil. Toss with your hands. Sprinkle garlic powder over veggies and toss with your hands. Sprinkle season salt over veggies and toss with you hands. Place in oven and roast for 15 minutes or until veggies are tender. Enjoy as a side for dinner or in a pita for lunch.
