eggplant pita with Tzatziki | vegan & Mediterranean

by Klaraslife

This post is also available in german/deutscheggplant pita with TzatzikiTasty aubergine pita with tzatziki – So friends and lovers of simple, tasty and divisive enjoyment.
Today, there is something delicious from the country of origin of heroes, gods and democracy.
Pitas are small, handy dough pies that you can easily make yourself. You just make a dough, as we describe below and in no time you have – after a short baking in the pan – sensationally tasty support for vegetables of all kinds.

Pita tastes particularly good with spicy roasted eggplant, vegan tzatziki with herbs refined and various raw or half-baked vegetables served as a side dish or as a salad.
We chose Tsatsiki and a variation of tomato cucumber salad with garden herbs on this hot day.
The details and ingredients are listed below.
The great thing about such dishes is: they come from the Mediterranean cuisine and are therefore a treat, especially on hot days.
They do not even give rise to this feeling of fullness, since they have been developed over the millennia and not without reason in countries with high daytime temperatures.
So feel like the gods on Mount Olympus as you prepare and enjoy this delicacy.

Greetings from the kitchen wish you Kathrin and Ramin
