My friend Cathy shared this recipe with me. You can alter it however you want. It’s one of those simple lunches that makes you feel like you are indulging.

Ingredients-

  • Lean ground turkey or ¬†beef. 3 oz a person.
  • Chopped bell peppers, onion, and mushrooms. (Use whatever veggies you like).
  • 1 pita of choice.
  • Cheese of choice (I used a bit of shredded mozzarella).
  • Seasonings for turkey (I used cumin, garlic powder, black pepper, and chili pepper).

Chop Veggies.DSC00185

Add veggies to a hot saute pan. About a 5 or a 6. I used no oil, just organic pam spray. These will cook fast. Make sure to stir them around. Once they begin to soften you can lower the temperature.DSC00189

In another pan, add ground turkey to a saute pan. Add ingredients. Cook on low to medium heat until finished.DSC00190

Drain turkey add to veggies and combine. Add sriracha/hot sauce if you get down like that.DSC00192

Stuff pitas. Add cheese and whatever toppings you like. Maybe a bit of ketchup or mustard.DSC00194
