I meeeeaaaan… do you want a bite of that or do YOU want a bite of THAT?! 😍
You guys! HI!! *waving* 👋 Happy Sunday and a very happy start to April!
I feel like it’s been 4EVA since we talked about sandwiches. Or burgers, or pita pockets. 🍔
I’ve had a bunch of sandwich/salad recipes going through my head lately, and I think it’s because I’m mentally, emotionally and physically super ready for summer and summery foods. I am done with that Cabbage Soup for now, and the Crock Pot all the things. Come October, those recipes will be back on repeat, but not today. Not for a while.
I honestly just want to cannonball into that bowl of Taratur, a.k.a. cucumber garlic yogurt sauce. And, NO, it’s not Tzatziki… it’s Taratur. The diff? Tzatziki is as thick as a spread, whereas Taratur is thinner and can be eaten like soup. Traditional Taratur also includes walnuts. Get that rad recipe right here ➡ Chicken Skewers with Cucumber-Garlic Yogurt Sauce.
Ok. SO! These pita pockets almost didn’t get filled with Taratur because I didn’t even think of it until we sat down to eat ’em. Heck, I wasn’t even going to share the recipe on here, but after a few bites, I knew what needed to happen:
A) Yogurt Sauce
B) SHARE on zee bloggy!
They’re so incredible and rich and delicious and healthy, too. The meatballs are prepared with turkey meat and they’re also baked. The pitas are whole wheat, the yogurt is nonfat, and the feta cheese is fat-free IF you want it to be.
GUYS. If you want something different for dinner, make these pita pockets. If you want something amazing for lunch, make these pita pockets. IFFFF you want something awesome to share with your friends and family, MAKE THESE PITA POCKETS. Mmmmkay? Cool.
Love you! 😘
