You asked for more recipes that are quick, easy and take less than 30 minutes to prepare during our Canadian food survey, so we made it happen! (See? We really are listening.) Our super-satisfying, veggie-packed chickpea pita sandwich recipe, with zesty yogurt sauce, is ready in half an hour flat. And it’s so delicious, you’ll definitely want to make “planned-overs” so you can eat it all over again for lunch the next day.
In a bowl, combine all the ingredients. Season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
In a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat, warm up the chickpeas and spices in the oil for 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
On a work surface, split open the pitas to obtain 8 discs. For each sandwich, slightly overlap 2 discs, and spread with yogurt sauce. Top with one-quarter of the chickpeas and 3 half-slices of tomato. Garnish generously with lettuce leaves.
Firmly roll and individually wrap with parchment paper, twisting the ends to seal. Cut in half and serve.
