Roasted Vegetable Pitas

READY IN: 55mins
Top Review by Anu_N

Wonderful, even if a tad time-consuming. I used kidney beans instead of cannellini, and dried parsley instead of fresh. At the end, instead of topping the bread with the different mixtures, I combined all together, including the yogurt and onions, and filled them inside pita pockets. Hint: The yogurt adds an awesome tartness, so preferably don't omit it. This was great, Dancer! Thanks for making my first "pita experience" thoroughly enjoyable!
