Vegan pita sandwiches make the perfect lunch
Vegan Pita Sandwiches: made with zaatar roasted cauliflower, Jerusalem salad, and an easy tahini sauce. The perfect vegan lunch!
I could hardly wait to make a batch of Zaatar Roasted Cauliflower, and put together these Vegan Pita Sandwiches. This is the kind of meal you can feel good about. While I've been eating vegetarian (and mostly vegan) this year, the boyfriend is an omnivore.These vegan pita sandwiches are filling enough to satisfy a meat-eating man who worked on his feet all day, so I'm calling that a win.
I highly recommend using this tahini sauce on just about everything. I love making little vegan bowls filled with ancient grains, chickpeas, and veggies, then topping it with creamy tahini sauce. I make a big batch of it and keep it in a squeeze bottle in my fridge. It's also excellent as a salad dressing! I added walnuts to this sandwich to give it a nice crunchy texture, but pecans would also be totally delicious.
Serves: 4 servings
- 2 tablespoons tahini
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
- Salt and Pepper
- 2 pitas, warmed and sliced in half*
- 1½ cups zaatar roasted cauliflower, warmed
- 1 cup Jerusalem salad
- 4 tablespoons chopped walnuts.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the tahini, honey, and lemon juice. Add enough hot water to thin it to a spreadable consistency. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed.
- Spread a quarter of the tahini sauce into the pocket of each of the four pita halves. Stuff each pita with one quarter of the cauliflower and Jerusalem salad.
- Garnish each sandwich with a tablespoon of chopped walnuts. Serve immediately.
