Greek-Style Veggie Burgers


1/4 cup plain lowfat yogurt
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano leaves, crushed
1 tablespoons sliced pitted ripe olives
1 tablespoon crumbled feta cheese
Freshly ground black pepper
2 meatless burger patties (about 2 1/2 oz. each)
4 tomato slices (about 1/4" thick each)
Sliced red onion
4 pitas


MIX yogurt, cumin and oregano. Stir in olives and cheese and season to taste with black pepper. Or buy the Gyro cucumber sauce already made! I actually prefer doing this! You can pick it up at Sprouts.

COOK patties according to package directions in a little oil and garlic. (I like to season mine with seasoned salt, adobo and Worcestershire sauce) Slice the patties into strips when cooked.

DIVIDE tomatoes, patties and yogurt mixture in a pita. Top with red onion.

TIP: For extra flavor, use Kalamata olives instead of ripe olives.
