    Ameliahead's Note:

    Definitely health food. I think it is quite tasty, but if you are not used to such light, vegetarian fare, you may not like it. From a Joyva tahini ad.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 4 pieces whole wheat pita bread (large ones work best)
    • 8 ounces soft tofu (I use extra firm silken and it is perfect)
    • 1 cup fresh spinach leaves, torn into bite-sized pieces
    • 4 plum tomatoes, diced (I use quartered cherry tomatoes)
    • 1 large avocado, halved, pitted, peeled, and cut into thin wedges
    • 1 cup mixed sprouts (I like mung bean sprouts, for the crunch)

    Tahini sauce


    1. 1
      In a small bowl, mix all sauce ingredients until blended.
    2. 2
      Slice an edge from each pita bread, and carefully open pockets.
    3. 3
      In a medium bowl, combine tofu, tomatoes, and spinach. Add 1/4 cup of sauce and toss gently to mix.
    4. 4
      Spoon the mixture into each pocket.
    5. 5
      Divide sprouts and avocado among the sandwiches.
    6. 6
      Drizzle each with 1 Tbs of tahini sauce. Serve right away.

      I used firm, regular tofu, marinated in Another Marinade For Roast Veggies or Kabobs overnight (deeelicious!). Since I don't like avocado that stayed out. It was great with cherry tomatoes, lentil sprouts and soy yogurt. Thanks for a delicious, light lunch I'll surely make again!
