Day 39: Stuffed Pita Falafel Sandwich

     My boyfriend and I went to the store today to pick up some food for lunch, since his parent's house doesn't have much vegan friendly food. Today we decided to experiment with some new meat substitutes and picked up veggie falafel chickpea balls to stuff in pita bread along with some sauteed vegetables. We also found this new version of hummus that we hadn't tried before so we picked that up as well to smear in the inside of our pita falafel sandwiches.

     I wasn't to sure about the falafel balls at first but they were very filling and went great with the greek olive hummus we picked up at the store.

Stuffed Pita Falafel Sandwich

Falafel chickpea balls
Pita bread
Red bell pepper
Minced garlic
White Onion
Hummus (we picked up a greek olive hummus)
Olive oil

    Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and cook the falafel for 8 to 10 minutes.

    Step 2: While the falafel balls are cooking lightly oil a frying pan and saute the garlic, onions, bell pepper, and mushrooms until soft.

   Step 3: Cut the pita bread in half and gently open the center, before warming them up in the microwave.

   Step 4: Once everything is done coat the inside of the pita bread with hummus before stuffing them with the falafel balls and sauteed mixture. Once completely stuffed add a little bit more hummus on top and you are ready to eat!
