1 tablespoon lemon juice

2 tablespoons minced fresh flat-leaf parsley

Stuffed Pita

2 Dr. Praeger’s Sweet Heat Beet Veggie Burgers

Instructions

  • In a small food processor or blender, combine the feta and yogurt. Pulse to combine then add in the lemon juice and parsley, pulsing a few more times. Alternatively, place the feta and yogurt in a bowl and stir/mash until well combined. Add in the lemon juice and parsley.
  • Cook the beet veggie burgers according to the package. Once done, slice in half. Warm the pita slightly over a gas stove flame or in a dry skillet. Slice in half and spread 1 to 2 tablespoons of the whipped feta on the inside of each pocket half.
