Top Review by LifeIsGood

This made for a very yummy lunch. If you are looking for a step above the usual sandwich AND you want to include some healthy veggies, this would be a great choice! I am so glad that I didn't skip using the jicama because it gave the stuffed pitas a delightful crunch and added a slight sweetness. I could see using the base of this recipe as a springboard for other meat/veggie combos. Great lemon butter sauce, too.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Core and seed the pepper and peel the jicama. Cut the pepper, zucchini, and jicama into thin strips.
  2. In a small saucepan, bring the lemon juice to a boil over medium heat. Boil 2-3 minutes, until juice is reduced to 1 tablespoon. Remove from heat and let stand 1 minute. Stir in the butter until it is melted and incorporated. Set aside.
  3. Heat the oil in a non-stick skillet. Add the pepper, zucchini, jicama, and turkey and saute for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add the water and saute another 3-4 minutes, until the vegetables are tender.
  5. Drizzle with lemon butter. Season with salt and pepper to taste and toss to blend.
  6. Cut pitas in half cross-wise and stuff with vegetable/turkey mixture.
