Cook Time



For the Pitas:

  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon palm syrup
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup bulgur wheat
  • 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour, divided
  • 2 tablespoons pumpkin seeds

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary

  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper


To Make the Pitas:

  1. Combine water, yeast, and palm syrup in a medium bowl and stir to dissolve yeast. Add salt, oil, bulgur wheat, and 1 1/2 cups of the whole wheat flour. Stir the mixture together for 1 -2 minutes, until well combined then cover with plastic and put in a warm spot for about 1 hour to start rising.
  2. After an hour, Add the other 1 cup of flour and stir well, knead with your hands if possible. Re-cover and place back in a warm spot to rise for about one more hour.
  3. When doubled in size, grease hands with oil and divide the dough into 8 balls. Use a rolling pin to flatten each ball into a disc. Brush tops with water and sprinkle with sesame seeds and pumpkin seeds, then press into dough.
  4. Heat a medium skillet over high heat and spray with oil. Cook pitas one at a time on each side for about 1 minute, until browned.

To Make the Hummus:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth.


If not using hummus immediately, store in an airtight container in fridge for up to 1 week.

Yes and it's so good, especially when you start with dried garbonzo beans. Never tried lentils. Sounds good!
