Attention hungry Street Teamers—I introduce: the Cucumber Hummus Pita!

This pita was my absolute FAVE lunch to pack in college. It’s super easy to make, healthy (?important), and delicious—like all Middle Eastern food! It’s also cheap, so it’s a great lunch for those of you who pay for your own food, or those of you who are careful with your parents’ money.

You can add vegan meats or falafel to this, but they aren’t necessary—this pita is bangin’ without ’em. :)

Cucumber Hummus Pita

1 pita

2-3 tablespoons hummus

1/2 of a medium-sized cucumber

  • Chop up the cucumber (You can peel it if you want to—but if you don’t, be sure to scrub it under water so that it doesn’t feel waxy.)
  • Cut the pita in half, so that you have a half-moon shaped pocket
  • Spoon the hummus into the pita
  • Add cucumbers

Makes 1 serving

If you’re taking this tasty lil’ momma to school, be sure to keep the pita separate from the cucumbers and hummus until you’re ready to eat. Nobody likes a soggy pita.

Enjoy!

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
