I found this unique recipe on the Food Network website. It looks like a great twist on an old favorite. Use the soy yogurt to make this dairy-free.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat, add the scallion whites cinnamon, salt, and pepper, and cook until tender, about 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in the garlic, tomato, and raisins and cook over high heat until mixture is almost dry, about 6 minutes.
  3. Add the chicken and cook stirring until meat is cooked through, about 5 to 6 minutes.
  4. Remove from the heat and stir in the green part of the scallions, yogurt, and pine nuts.
  5. Serve mixture stuffed into warm pita with tomato slices and cucumber slices.

Very good- and I don't even like traditional sloppy joes. These taste so much better, but are just as easy to make. I especially liked the burst of sweetness from the raisins, and the hints of nuttiness from the pine nuts.
