Middle Eastern Stuffed Sandwiches

by Aviva Goldfarb


10 ounces hummus, any variety

1 cucumber, peeled and sliced

2 tomatoes, diced

1/2 yellow or red onion, thinly sliced

1/2 cup fresh mint leaves

1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled

6 pita pockets (“Mom” prefers whole wheat)


Put all the ingredients in separate bowls so that each family member can design their own sandwich. Warm the pitas in the microwave or oven until they are warm and soft. Cut them in half crosswise (so you have 2 semicircles), then cut the pockets open so you can fill them. Spread a layer of hummus in each pita half and top it will fillings of your choice. Enjoy!
