This the final post in three part series involving recipes for piquillo pepper hummus, homemade pita (or pitta), and now stuffed pita. The hummus is amazing and the pita is the best I’ve ever had. Combine with a few more simple ingredients and you have a scrumptious snack. This snack, or light meal, is also quite healthy even though it does not taste like it at all. I feel like it’s a treat even though it’s good for me, and I’m not one of those people that enjoy eating tofu and call it “yummy.” My skinny jeans wish I was though.
When I was going to make dinner, I was planning on making stuffed zucchinis. I’ve made them before, and they were awesome. I chopped up the onion, and I pulled out he zucchini and….the zucchinis had begun to rot. I was VERY bummed. But, I had just made pita and hummus and my mom sent me falafel mix I had been intending to try. So I took the lemons that life handed me and made stuffed pita. This turned out to be a very good decision. I didn’t have feta cheese which is typical in stuffed pitas so I used a different kind of goat cheese crumbles. The tangy flavor of the goat cheese really complimented the other flavors in this pita in an unexpected, yet harmonious, way.
Before the recipe, I would love input regarding what types of recipes you, my audience, would like to see more. More bread? Healthy options? Vegan recipes? I would also love input about my writing, photography, and recipes. Do you like having the nutrition facts and printable versions? Since this is a very new blog, I’m still trying to find out the best way to cater to my readers. I think the best way to do this is to ask my readers. Please comment or email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any suggestions, questions, or just want to say “Hi.” Now, for the recipe.
Since there were so many variants in this recipe, I have not posted nutrition facts. The pita is 100 calories, the hummus would be about 25 calories, and the falafel brand I used would contribute approximately 50 calories. However, I used a very specific brand of falafel mix and goat cheese and these factors could change the nutrition content significantly. I would say that it is likely to be no more than 250 calories per whole stuffed pita (2 halves). If you have questions about this, please leave a comment or email (address above) and I will do my best to answer.
