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. Photo shows filling.

How To Make delicious greek veggie pitas

  • 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.
