A pocket full of deliciousness

Jump to Recipe

My husband once told me that everything tastes better in a tortilla and it’s true! Over the years, I’ve extended this concept to include pita pockets as well – they are easy and fun and so versatile. This gluten-free BurgerFit Mediterranean Pocket is a BurgerFit Favorite – it’s one of my husband’s favorites as well as my Marketing Director’s favorite recipes! You may even get a picky eater to eat some veggies that you carefully tuck inside. It definitely works for Fletcher! Seriously, this is a recipe that everyone in the family can enjoy or can be modified so everyone can enjoy!
Even though I used the Koops’ Stone Ground Mustard in this recipe, you can experiment with any of the Koops’ Mustards! Some other ones that I think would be great in this recipe are:
  1. Spicy Brown Koops’ Mustard
  2. Arizona Heat Koops’ Mustard
  3. Dijon Koops’ Mustard
  4. Honey Dijon Koops’ Mustard
 
Any of our BurgerFit burgers would taste amazing in this pita pocket and you could even change the overall flavor of it depending on what burger you use! A few of my favorite BurgerFit burger recipes that would be super tasty in this recipe are:
  1. Broccoli Burger
  2. Ethiopian Lentil Burger
  3. Sweet Potato & Rosemary Burger
  4. Zucchini Pesto Burger
  5. Kohlrabi Burger

 

My husband always says that everything tastes better in a tortilla. I’ve come to realize this concept applies to pita pockets as well! -Alane

Mediterranean Pocket

I love the versatility of this recipe and how you can easily tuck ingredients into the pocket to go unnoticed by picky eaters! You can completely change the flavor of this recipe depending on what you have. Swap out the lettuce for spinach or kale, the hummus for an herb goat cheese or pesto, the onion and tomatoes for carrots and radishes. Get creative and have fun with the pita pocket!
