Hungry Girl Recipe: My Big Fat Greek Pita

This filling pita pays homage to Greek cooking (without all the oil!). HG Tip! If you can find it, a little bit of fat-free feta works GREAT with this recipe... Ingredients: 1 Western Bagel Alternative Pita 2 oz. Fage Total 0% Greek Yogurt 1 small onion; sliced 1/2 cup sliced red and green peppers 2 cups fresh spinach 1/2 cup halved cherry tomatoes salt, pepper, oregano, and garlic powder red pepper flakes (optional) Directions: In a small dish, combine yogurt with salt, pepper, oregano and garlic powder (season to taste). For some added spice, add red pepper flakes. In a skillet sprayed with no-cal cooking spray, cook onions and peppers over medium heat for 5 – 7 minutes. Add spinach and tomatoes, and cook until spinach leaves have lost their volume. Remove from heat, and mix veggies with yogurt sauce. Cut pita in half (toast if desired) and stuff with veggie mix. *HG Note: Feel free to substitute other brands of veggie burgers, tortillas, pitas, etc., just be aware that nutritionals may vary. We always like to recommend the ones that are lowest in calories and fat and taste the best!
