Grilled Veggie and Goat Cheese Pitas

As already mentioned in previous posts, Rona and I have been pretty busy lately studying for finals. But as of this past Thursday, I took my last final of my undergraduate career! Next step: graduation!! But for those of you who may still be taking finals, exhausted from work, or busy for any other reason, this recipe is something so simple that really came in handy while I was studying. It's easy to get caught up in work/school, so much so that your eating habits get thrown to the wayside. Luckily, this meal has very little prep time, is healthy, and most importantly, tastes great.

Ingredients (serves 1) 
2 large mushrooms (portobello or other kind), stems removed
1/2 zucchini, sliced
1/4 red onion, sliced
1/4 red bell pepper, thickly sliced 
1 1/2 tablespoons red wine vinegar 
1/2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil 
1/4 teaspoon sea salt 
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 
Fresh goat cheese 
4 whole wheat pitas, halved

This recipe is meant for a grill, but the closest thing I had was a grill pan so I made do. 


1) Combine vinegar, oil, salt, and pepper in a small mixing bowl. Brush vinegar mixture over sliced vegetables. 

2) Preheat grill (or oil grill pan) and put over medium heat.

3) Grill vegetables for 8-12 minutes, covered, until softened, turning a few times. 

4) Once cooked, set vegetables aside and toast pita.

5) Spread goat cheese in pitas, and stuff with vegetables. 

Nice and easy!
