Veggie pitta delight

This is one of the easiest and tasty pitta bread sandwich recipe. This is oil free recipe and can be enjoyed during diet or weight loss. This recipe has good amount of raw vegetables which counts towards your 5 a day. Hummus adds up for protein required for body. Pitta bread provides carbohydrate and cheese counts towards dairy and fat.

Wholemeal pitta bread:
Hummus: 1-2 tbs per pitta bread (as required)
Tomato : 1 medium
Onion: 1/2
Green and red peppers: 1/4 each
Cucumber: 2 inch
Cheddar cheese: 3-4 thin slices per pitta bread (avoid if you are watching your weight)
Tomato sauce (optional)
Freshly crushed pepper (optional)

Wash and peel onions. Wash and remove seeds from peppers. Wash tomato and cucumber. Cut all of these into thin slices. I avoid salt as much as possible. For those who likes salt in their food sprinkle bit of salt on to the salad. Sprinkle crushed peppers on to the salad. Cut cheese into thin slices.
Take a pitta bread and lightly toast it.

Cut pitta bread along the side using knife. Use butter knife to make proper gap for filling. Apply 1-2 tabs of hummus. Hummus is good source of protein which makes the whole sandwich a good balanced meal.
Now add one layer of cucumber, one layer of tomato, one layers of onion, peppers, cheese and so on.
Add sauce of your taste and enjoy.
