Roasted Vegetable Pita with Chipotle Sauce

Roasted Vegetable Pita with Chipotle SauceProduce is one of the most common foods that goes bad and has to be tossed out, which is why we think these roasted vegetable pita sandwiches are so amazing. Paired with a simple chipotle sauce for extra flavor, these pita sandwiches are a great way to use up any leftover vegetables in the fridge before they go bad. We chose zucchini, bell pepper and mushrooms for our pitas, but feel free to use any and all vegetables you have available to you!

  2. Place vegetables onto baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil and vinegar. Toss to coat. Season with salt.
  3. Roast vegetables for 20 minutes, stirring once or twice during cooking.
  4. While vegetables are cooking, whisk together the chipotle cream sauce ingredients. If you prefer a smooth sauce, blend ingredients together in a blender. Set aside.
