Vegetarian Pita Sandwiches

I had a complete brain fart yesterday and forgot to post!  Sorry about that!  I made these Vegetarian Pita Sandwiches for a recent family gathering, and they were delicious!  Even the hardcore meat-eaters thought so!  (I'm working on getting them turned around!)

This is part of the My Legume Love Affair challenge for April!  Woot!!!  That's my second challenge completed this month.  See the first here because it was another vegetarian dish!

{Thank you a day through my life, Lisa's Kitchen and The Well-Seasoned Cook for hosting this challenge!}
