We’ve taken everything that’s delicious about the Mediterranean to bring you this easy, nourishing pita. This pita is filled with warm Lebanese spices, creamy garlic and lemon sauce and tangy pickled beets. This dish is ready under 25 minutes and will be a show stopper at the table tonight!
Cook the chicken: Turn on the oven to 375F.
Place the Chana Chaat chickpeas on a lined baking sheet and bake until the chickpeas are warm and slightly crispy – about 10 minutes.
Prepare the vegetables: Rinse and dry all produces. Cut the romaine lettuce in about 2 cm slices. Cut the tomato in half and cut in 1/2cm slices.
Place the vegetables in the pita & finish the sauce: Place the romaine lettuce and sliced tomato on each pita.
Place the yogurt garlic sauce in a small bowl. Zest half the lemon and juice it. Add the lemon zest (1/8 tsp, 1/4 tsp) and lemon juice (1 tsp, 2 tsp) to the yogurt garlic sauce. Taste and add salt, lemon zest and lemon juice if desired.
Finish filling the pita: Add the Chana Chaat chickpeas, the yogurt garlic sauce and the pink pickled beets to the pita.
Note: The pickle beets are very acidic from the vinegar. If you find them too strong soak them in water for a minute.
Serve: Roll up the pita, cut in half and serve.
Tomatoes are the greatest source of lycopene, a potent antioxidant that is important for mens prostate health and for heart health.
