A few days ago I made these bean burgers. That night we ate two of them, leaving three for later in the week. This time around I decided to make fresh pita to put them in. I had already made the dough, which I wrote about in this post, in which I described nearly ruining a giant head of cauliflower.
Since the dough was quite cold from having been in the refrigerator for several days, I let it sit on the counter while I heated the oven and a pizza stone to 500 degrees for twenty minutes. Then I formed a nice pound-size ball of dough and cut it into four smaller balls and rolled them out quite flat.
I baked them two at a time for seven minutes and then wrapped them in a clean tea towel to keep them warm and soft.
While the second pair were in the oven, I heated oil in my frying pan for the three burgers. I cut open the two larger of the pita pacman-style and inserted the burgers, squirt in some ketchup, added some shredded romaine lettuce, and sliced red onions. We ate them up. And then I cut the third burger in half and put each half in the smaller pitas the same way. The second time around I skipped the red onion.
These were quite delicious, easy to make on a weeknight, and not quite as messy as a bun can be.
