Foodie Friday - Hummus Pocket

It's been a while since I shared any recipes. A few days ago I made the most delicious hummus pocket which I thought was a great cool summer type food.

Here's what I used but add more to your liking. It's a great user upper of odds and ends from the garden this summer.

I forgot the lettuce in the pic- oops!

Pita Bread
  • This is ideal but you could substitute tortillas to make a wrap or bread for a sandwich
  • I like to warm up my pita by toasting it a bit with a little olive oil. If you use a tort it's a good idea to warm it up a bit too so it doesn't break when you wrap. I'd like to toast up bread if I used it 'cause I like things crunchy.
  • I bought mine pre-made at our local co-op but you can make your own. There are lots of recipes on line just get your google on.
Veggies -these were what I used
  • lettuce- shredded
  • cumbers - thinly sliced
  • carrots - grated
  • red onion- thinly sliced
You could also use:
  • squash - thinly sliced or grated
  • red pepper - thinly sliced

I like to add some chili garlic sauce for some zing. If you do use this remember a little goes a very long way, it is very spicy.

Cut your pita in half then fill with the above goodies of your choice. One half is about good for a light lunch, eat both halves if you are really hungry.
