    Anne Sainz's Note:

    This is adapted from a recipe on drfuhrman.com. I made some changes to better fit our taste preferences. This reminds me of a good bistro sandwich: juicy, a little messy and delicious. You can reduce prep time by using jarred garlic and frozen onions and peppers. Vegizest is a mild herbal seasoning blend you can purchase on drfuhrman.com.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2/3 cup unhulled sesame seeds or 1/2 cup tahini
    • 3/4 cup water (1/2 cup if using tahini)
    • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
    • 1 teaspoon low sodium soy sauce
    • 1 teaspoon Mrs. Dash seasoning mix (I use 1 Tablespoon vegizest instead, a mild herbal seasoning blend you can purchase on drfuhrman.com)
    • 2 dates, pitted and sliced
    • 1 small garlic clove, sliced
    • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
    • 1 large sweet red pepper, chopped
    • 8 ounces baby bella mushrooms, sliced
    • 1/2 teaspoon oil (to coat pan)
    • 4 whole grain pita (I like Toufayan Whole Wheat)
    • 2 -3 cups baby arugula

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Pita Spread: Combine sesame seeds (or tahini), water, lemon juice, soy sauce, VegiZest, dates and garlic in high powered blender. Blend until smooth. Set aside.
    2. 2
      Filling: Coat large covered non-stick frying pan with oil. Add onion, red pepper and mushrooms. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, adding small amounts of water as needed to prevent sticking.
    3. 3
      When filling is done, cut each pita in half across and gently open to create a pocket. Spread 1/8 of pita spread inside each pocket half. Add 1/8 of the filling and then stuff with arugula. Serve two halves per person.
