Vegetarian Hummus Pita Pizza

Vegetarian Hummus Pita Pizza

Toasted pita bread and hummus reminds me of my college roommate and friend-turned sister-in-law (how fun is that?). She used to eat it often and it became one of our quick lunches in between classes. The lightly warmed and toasted pita was so good with a smear of hummus on it. I thought this time I would turn it into a more filling meal by adding some sauteed vegetables.

This is a delicious vegetarian meal great for lunch, dinner or as an appetizer! You can easily make it vegan by omitting the feta cheese. You could also saute the veggies ahead of time, mix in the olives and feta and pack it and the hummus in tupperware containers for a healthy, easy-to-assemble work lunch.

I have one more post planned for this week and then I am off to the IFBC conference (International Food Blogging Conference) organized by Foodista.com and Zephyr Adventures.

International Food Blogger Conference 2013 Seattle

I have heard fabulous things about this conference which I almost booked last year when it took place in New Orleans.  I am so lucky that I just have to travel the short drive to Seattle to attend the conference this year.

The conference focus on three things: food, writing and technology. The agenda looks amazing and includes sessions such as: The Elements in Building Traffic, Food Photography & Cooking Demo, Writing and Storytelling and much more. I am already having a hard time deciding which sessions to attend as all the options look great.

My sweet mom is taking charge of the kids so I can attend. So lucky! I will be sure to give you a couple post-conference updates. I am sure the food and sessions will be amazing!

  8. I love easy meal ideas like this, and it would be delicious on top of a baked Udi’s gluten-free crust which tastes a little like pita to me. For the life of me, I have no idea what I ate for lunch in college, but I did have a roommate who always made a bowl of chocolate chip cookie dough and kept it in our fridge for snacking on. Have fun at your conference-looking forward to hearing all about it :-)
