This Veggie Pita Sandwich with Avocado Hummus is the perfect lunch. The creamy avocado hummus sets it apart from your average pita sandwich. And as you know, avocado is an excellent source of several vitamins, minerals, healthy fats, and fiber. This stuffed pita is guaranteed to give you steady energy for the afternoon hours at work.
1 can (15 oz) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 large avocado, pitted
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
2 garlic cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 Whole Wheat Pitas, cut in half
1/2 medium cucumber, sliced
1 large tomato, sliced
1 cup alfalfa sprouts, washed and patted dry
In a food processor or high-power blender, combine the chickpeas, avocado, lemon juice, garlic cloves, pepper, and salt.
Turn on the food processor and blend until the avocado hummus is fully pureed and evenly mixed.
One at a time, take a pita half and open it up to form a pita pocket. In each pita, half spread 2 heaping tablespoons of the avocado hummus. Next, layer in the cucumber slices, tomato slices, and alfalfa sprouts.
Serve and enjoy!
