This is another great meal that the kids can help with or build themselves. It is also another great option for adults to make into a salad.
or minced chicken or turkey will work, too
chopped very fine
whole wheat or white pita bread
lettuce of choice
cut into strips
peeled and cut into long strips
sliced (this is for the big kids and adults)
8 ounce can
hummus of choice
plain Greek yogurt
peeled and minced (you can use the scraps from the first cucumber or a small piece of that cucumber depending on its size)
fresh black pepper
To make the sauce, mix together the yogurt, juice from the lemon, garlic, cucumber, and pepper. Place in the refrigerator until you’re ready to serve the meal.
In a large sauté pan, heat the cooking oil and garlic. Cook the garlic for 1-2 minutes.
Add the meat to the pan and cook through.
Season with the oregano and add in the chopped spinach. Toss to combine everything.
Warm up the pitas in the microwave for about 30 seconds.
To build the pita wraps, spread the sauce and hummus over the pita, top with the beef mixture and then the lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, and olives.
For babies, you can cut the pita into small strips as well and serve all ingredients separately on a plate.
Instead of making pita wraps, you can serve all ingredients over white rice, salad greens, or sautéed kale.
