pita sandwiches



my go-to on-the-go meal is a stuffed pita sandwich: it's warm, easy, flavorful and crunchy. i can substitute any of the ingredients with whatever i have in my fridge--i'm still using up leftovers from my party.

here's how i'm currently making my pita sandwiches:




ingredients:
- whole wheat pita bread
- zesty garlic hummus
- thinly sliced cucumbers
- roasted red tomatoes in oil

method:
1. warm up pita in toaster oven
2. cut in half to create 2 pita pockets
4. stuff with hummus, cucumbers and roasted tomatoes
5. enjoy!

ive actually made something similar before using hummus and veggies and sometimes chicken pieces, however my pita gets cold and hard really easily, do you know a way i could maintain the softness?lizs

hmm--i would suggest not storing your pita in your fridge if possible, and making sure the sandwich is tightly stored in a ziploc bag or container. gently warming it up in the toaster helps too if you're going to eat it immediately.
