Ingredients

    Yogurt Sauce

  • 1 cup (250 ml) plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 Lebanese cucumber, grated
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) lemon juice
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh mint
  • 1/4 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 small clove garlic, finely chopped

    Chickpeas

  • 1 can (19 oz/540 ml) chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

    Sandwiches

  • 4 pita bread
  • 1 tomato, cut into 12 half-slices
  • 1 Boston lettuce, broken into leaves

Preparation

Yogurt Sauce

  1. In a bowl, combine all the ingredients. Season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Chickpeas

  1. 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.

Sandwiches

  1. 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.
  2. Firmly roll and individually wrap with parchment paper, twisting the ends to seal. Cut in half and serve.
