Having twins makes certain parts of the day rough. For me, it’s often dinner and bedtime. By bedtime I’m exhausted and keeping life a good time takes a lot of energy; usually more than what I have at this stage in my pregnancy. Enter amazing friends. When your husband works long hours and often has to work late truly good friends come over and help me put the twins to bed. Our most frequent and generous friend (my bestie) convinced me to post this dish as she was the last person I shared it with. I try to always make her dinner when she’s here as a very small thank you for her time and energy in putting up with this crazy household.
This recipe is my weekday secret. I make it all the time. It’s quick, fresh, and makes great use of leftover proteins. Oh and you have little dishes to wash. Winner all around right?
I use whichever protein I have. This could mean chicken, steak, fish, whatevs. If want to go vegetarian add a bit more hummus. Fridge running dry in the protein department? Crack open a can of tuna or black beans. It’s truly simple fresh food that makes you feel satisfied and good.
1 pita, warmed or toasted
1-2 tbsp hummus
1 portion of leftover protein
1/4 cucumber, chopped
Handful of cherry tomatoes, halved
Handful of bite size pieces of lettuce, washed and dried
1 green onion, sliced
50 grams feta, crumbled
Drizzle of olive oil and red wine vinegar
Salt and pepper
Spread hummus on top of warmed or toasted pita. Top with protein, lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes, green onion, feta and drizzle with oil and vinegar. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
