  • 10 oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes

  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup walnuts
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint
  • 2 tablespoons fresh oregano

Servings 4


Step 1

Soak the sun-dried tomatoes in a bowl of warm water for 30 minutes.

In a food processor, combine the tomatoes, 1/3 cup of the red peppers, the water, garlic, walnuts, mint, oregano, cayenne, and salt to taste. Process until smooth, scraping down the bowl as necessary. If the spread is too thick, add more water, 1 teaspoon at a time.

Place 1 tablespoon of the tomato spread in each pita half. Stuff each pita with an equal amount of the chicken, arugula, avocado, and remaining 2/3 cup red pepper.
