Note: Grill extra veggies at dinnertime so you’ll have some on hand for sandwiches and salads. They will keep refrigerated in a tightly sealed container for up to a week. Get an adult’s help with the part of this recipe that requires a food processor.

What you need:

  • ½ cup low-fat cream cheese or any other low-fat spreadable cheese

Equipment and supplies

  • Food processor
  • Butter knife (for spreading)

What to do:

  1. With an adult’s help, place cream cheese and herbs into a food processor.
  2. Pulse until herbs are evenly distributed throughout cheese.
  3. Spread 1-2 tablespoons of herbed cream cheese onto the inside of each pita.
  4. Stuff each pita evenly with grilled veggies.
