White Bean Greek Pitas (no cooking required)

Y’all! I LOVE this new recipe I tried just last night and can’t wait to share it with you! I’ve been doing less meat lately, so I set out to find some plant based protein dishes. Here’s the latest.

What you need

(I do the majority of my shopping at Aldi via Instacart!)

The Sauce:

  • 1/2 c non-fat plain Greek Yogurt
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

The Filling

  • 1 can cannellini or great northern white beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 1/2 c feta cheese (I choose reduced fat)
  • 1/2 c peeled and chopped cucumber
  • 1/2 c. halved cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/2 c sliced Kalamata olives
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbps olive oil
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

Holding it together:

  • Pita Flatbread (3)
  • Toothpicks

Let’s do this!

Start with the sauce. Mix all three ingredients together and set aside in the fridge to soak up the garlic and lemon goodness. I suggest using a dish you have a lid for to easily store leftovers

Next, prep where you need to. ie: chopping cucumber, onion, tomatoes, etc.

Time saver tip: buy minced garlic and Kalamata olives that are already sliced ready to go

Grab a medium sized bowl – again – having a lid is helpful, so you don’t need to dirty another dish to save any leftovers. Take all the filling items and mix ’em up. Easy peasy.

Time to assemble! Take one pita and spread with about a third of the garlic yogurt sauce. Then take about a third of the filling and place on one side. Fold in half and you are ready to eat!

I cut mine in half and secured with a toothpick. Then served with some fresh fruit. One of my fave meals yet!

Try it out! Let me know what you think? Did you add your own twist to it? I want to know!
