Ingredients

Scale
  • 4 portabella mushrooms
  • 2 yellow bell peppers, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 4 pita breads or naan
  • 2 tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • ½ red onion, thinly sliced
  • ½ head green lettuce
  • Crumbled feta cheese, optional

For the Yogurt Dill Sauce:

  • 1 English cucumber, grated
  • 1 cup whole milk Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Juice from ½ small lemon
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh dill

Instructions

  1. Remove the stems from the mushrooms and brush caps with a wet towel. Carefully scrape out the gills with a spoon. Slice mushroom into ¼-inch pieces and place in a medium bowl along with the olive oil, oregano and smoked paprika.
  2. Preheat an indoor grill pan over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and peppers and grill, tossing occasionally, until tender, 5-7 minutes.
  3. To make the Yogurt Dill Sauce, squeeze the grated cucumber in a clean towel to remove excess liquid. Add to a large bowl with yogurt, sour cream, olive oil, lemon, garlic, salt and dill. Stir to combine.
  4. To serve, place mushrooms and peppers in the middle of the pita bread. Top with tomatoes, onion, lettuce, feta (optional), and a big dollop of yogurt sauce.

* Check the mushroom package label to see if the mushrooms have been exposed to UV light for maximum vitamin D – up to 120% DV1.
