  • Summary

    Cool romaine lettuce and barbecue-flavored chickpeas combine to create great flavor and texture in this hearty pita sandwich. This pairs well with many simple companions—potatoes or sweet potatoes, fresh corn, a simple quinoa salad or pilaf, or a light soup. And steamed green veggies are always welcome, too.

    Ingredients

    • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil or 2 tablespoons vegetable broth or water
    • 1 medium onion, quartered and sliced
    • 1 medium red bell pepper, cut into short, narrow strips
    • 2/3 cup homemade No-Cook Barbecue Sauce, or store-bought
    • 2 teaspoons good-quality chili powder
    • 1 1/2 to 2 cups cooked or canned (drained and rinsed) chickpeas
    • 2 large fresh pitas, preferably whole wheat
    • Finely shredded romaine lettuce to taste
    • Fresh green sprouts, such as broccoli sprouts or pea shoots, to taste (optional)
    • 2 medium ripe fresh tomatoes, thinly sliced
