Pleasing Pita Pocket

Nutritional labelPrep time: 5-10 minutes

Recipe makes: 1 pita pocket (1 serving)

  • 2 tablespoons hummus
  • 1 whole-wheat pita bread, small size (or half of a regular-size pita)
  • ¼ cup shredded Romaine lettuce or mixed greens
  • 1 small fresh tomato, chopped up
  • ¼ cup sliced fresh cucumber
Equipment and supplies:
  • Knife and cutting board for chopping
  1. Using a knife, open up the pita and spread the hummus inside the pita pocket, then add the lettuce, tomato, and cucumber. Serve as soon as possible, so the pita bread doesn't soften.

Tip: If you're taking this as a packed lunch, keep the ingredients separate and put everything into the pita just before you eat it.
