Pita Veggie Sandwich

From Wikipedia:

Pita is a round pocket bread widely consumed in many Middle Eastern, Mediterranean, and Balkan cuisines. It is prevalent from the Balkans through Greece, the Levant, the Arabian Peninsula and Turkey. The “pocket” in pita bread is created by steam, which puffs up the dough. As the bread cools and flattens, a pocket is left in the middle.

When it comes to sandwich, pita bread is one of my favorite bread. The sandwich looks scrumptious with their pockets filled with veggies and sauces. Along with vegetables, you can also add potato fries or falafel or veggie patties. Use your imagination and fill your sandwich. Just like the filling, you can use your favorite sauce. This can be quickly prepared and so is apt for dinner or when you want to have a lite meal. Here you go…
