I'm on a pita lunch kick this summer because it's easy to vary pita fillings and they make a quick weekday lunch option. The idea for a radish and hummus filling came from The Live-In Kitchen and I'm so glad Lindsay suggested the combination because it's a great one!
Slicing small items, like radishes, on my mandoline makes me nervous despite the hand guard so I pulled out the slicing disc for my food processor and was impressed with how quickly and easily it produced thinly sliced radishes.
I was happy to find pitas included in my big box of free items from Stonefire because I have a hard time finding pitas that aren't dry, which causes them to crack when being filled and they don't taste very good. The Stonefire pitas I received were very soft, easy to fill and better tasting than any pitas I've tried before. I only wish I could get a regular shipment of them.
For this filling combination, I chose my favorite type of hummus (Sabra roasted red pepper), along with arugula, spinach, radishes and feta cheese. I thought the arugula and radishes together might be a bit too peppery but they were surprisingly good together.
I would love to hear suggestions for more pita filling combinations! What's your favorite? My other go-to pita lunch this summer has been the edamame pesto, feta & chickpea combo.
