Root Vegetable Pita Sandwich
We’re in the process of moving, so the kitchen is a bit…. out of sorts. Hauling all our books is a workout (which I appreciate) and it’s led me to rediscover some of my favorite standbys that had fallen dusty behind newer interests. I love to read. I love all sorts of books, not just cookbooks. The blog Civil Eats recently posted Farmers Talk About the Books that Inspire Them and I took some suggestions off their list, a few I haven’t had the privilege of reading yet.
Here’s what I’m adding to my winter reading list:
- How to Grow More Vegetables Than You Ever Thought Possible on Less Land Than You Can Imagine by John Jeavons
- Full Woman, Fleshly Apple, Hot Moon by Pablo Neruda
- Any suggestions you may have for me? I’d appreciate it!
Anyway, it’s been pretty convenient having lots of food cooked and ready to go – makes lunch and dinner a snap! Yesterday, I supported the internet protest of SOPA/PIPA. Today, I share with you….
Whole Wheat Pita with Root Vegetables
You could fill this any number of ways, but I used what I had on hand: roasted potatoes, cauliflower, turnips and carrots, fresh arugula, roasted garlic, and greens (rabe, kale, chard). Add a dollop of fresh ricotta and you’ve got a delicious sandwich going on. It’s easy to pack, and wrapped in tinfoil it’s wicked easy to eat in the car.
What’s your favorite filling for pita sandwiches?
