I got this recipe for vegetarian Greek pita sandwiches from folks at a local Greek festival.

These are delicious and you don't miss the meat at all. I think they are very healthy, too.

Preparing (cutting, peeling, etc.) the vegetables is time consuming , as is the 2 hour baking time. But baking the filling makes your whole house smell wonderful.

How to Make Delicious Greek Veggie Pitas

Step-by-Step

  • 1Prepare the eggplant before assembling other ingredients. Peel and cut eggplant into 2 inch chunks. Place these in an extra large bowl with salted water to cover. This will draw out the bitterness from the eggplant.

    Let this sit for about 3 hours.
  • 2Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

    Cut the potatoes, green bell peppers, onion, squash and tomatoes into 2-inch chunks. Cut the green beans and mushrooms in half and peel and mince the garlic cloves.
  • 3Drain and rinse the eggplant, then combine it with all the other chopped vegetables, the dill, oregano and basil. Place all in a 9 by 13 inch roasting pan. Pour the tomato sauce and olive oil over all.

    Bake at 375 degrees for 2 hours, stirring and adding a little water about halfway through cooking time to keep moist.

    Serve hot in warm pita pockets.
