Mini Pita Bites

Here's a quick, nutritious, and MAJORLY tasty lunch option- it is SO SO SO great it you have kids (little fingers love little sandwiches!) but just as great for big kids too! They are perfect for a luncheon, shower, or any ol' get together where you are bringing along something to munch on! Bring them as an appetizer, for a pot luck, or serve them any day of the week for snacks or lunch- I introduce to you, Miss Mini Pita Bite. Ain't she cute??


Ingredients:
Pita Breads (I get whole wheat ones at Trader Joe's)
Your favorite flavor hummus
Lots of fresh veggies and herbs like:
  • carrots
  • bell peppers
  • cucumbers
  • bean sprouts
  • sprouts
  • spinach
  • avocado
  • fresh parsley
  • fresh dill*So, recently I clued into the "mini" pitas available at Trader Joe's (verses the ones that are the size of a salad plate) and my daughter loved them because they were so "tiny!" They also leave a "star" shaped piece in the bag once you remove the 4 mini circles that are connected- so that is extra fun to dip!
Simply slice your pitas in half, open them up and stuff them full of your favorites! Enjoy!!
