After a long weekend, I could hardly wait to get back in the kitchen to make a batch of Zaatar Roasted Cauliflower, and put together these Vegan Pita Sandwiches.

You may be asking, “Is pita bread vegan?”

In most cases it is vegan because it made from flour, water, yeast and salt.

However, some bakeries add other ingredients such as milk, eggs or honey for flavor, so to be sure look at the ingredients list and make sure there are no animal-derived ingredients before you buy it.

I highly recommend using this tahini sauce on just about everything. I love making little vegan bowls filled with ancient grains, chickpeas, and veggies, then topping it with creamy tahini sauce.

I make a big batch of it and keep it in a squeeze bottle in my fridge. It’s also excellent as a salad dressing!

I added walnuts to this sandwich to give it a nice crunchy texture, but pecans would also be totally delicious.

Alright, enough jabbering for today. Time to go finish cleaning out the coolers!

  1. This is one of my new favorite recipes!! I couldn’t find zataar in my grocery store, but I was able to amazon prime it over to me. I’m not vegan, so I used honey and added some greek yogurt and a little feta to the salad.. Love the tahini spread.

    1. Ack! You’re absolutely correct. I tested it with agave but neglected to make the change on my draft document. My apologies – fixed now!
