    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Heat olive oil in a large frypan over medium-high heat. Saute bean sprouts, spring onion, mushrooms and olives until tender, about 3 minutes. Reduce heat to low and add the carrots, celery, ginger, salt and pepper. Cook for a few more minutes to blend the flavours. The carrots and celery should remain crisp. Stir in the black beans and sunflower seeds and cook just until heated through. Remove from heat.
    2. Meanwhile, place some of the grated cheese inside each pita quarter and heat in the microwave for about 30 seconds, or until cheese has melted. Set aside.
    3. Spoon vegetable mixture into the pita triangles. Garnish with sour cream and chives.

    Excellent! I did not use mushrooms because I do not care for them and I used chives instead of green onions because my store ran out of green onions. This recipe seems to be easily adapted to different tastes and vegetables.  -  26 Jul 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Delicious! I used a whole pita, spread cheese on half, melted it in the micro and then added the filling and sour cream. It was really filling. One plus a side dish was more than enough. Very good!!  -  16 Jun 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Nice! Found it a little dry so I poured on a touch of Thousand Island dressing - delicious!  -  24 Jul 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
