Delicious Greek Veggie Pitas

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

  1. Prepare 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.
  2. Preheat 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.
  3. Drain 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.
