I'm vegan and my family isn't. My family loved it as written and I just subbed in pinto beans seasoned with the pepper and garlic for me. We liked sliced, home-grown tomatoes on it or subbing in whole wheat tortillas for the pitas, too. Delicious!

This recipe is simple and delicious! I also made a cucumber sauce to go with it and I think this will become one of my families staple meals. Even my children who are 5 and 2 love it.
