Head lettuce, white onion, tomato, falafel, oregano chicken, tahini, sweet garlic sauce, tzatziki all sandwiched between whole wheat pita bread. Perfection.

2 1/2 teaspoons dry active yeast. 1 teaspoon honey. 1/2 cup warm water.

Hang out for 5 minutes.

Some carbs are good for you.

2 cups whole wheat flour, 1 cup all purpose flour.

Measure 1/2 cup of the flour mixture into different bowl.

Whisk yeast mixture into second flour bowl. Cover for about 1/2 hour somewhere warm.

Mix the rest of the flour in, add 3/4 cup warm water, 1/4 cup evoo.

Knead into a ball.

Cover and rest again for 1 hour until dough doubles in bulk.


Punch out air.

Section into 8 pieces.

Roll out into 7 inch discs.

Rest between towels.

Bake in 500 degrees for 2 minutes per side. Some inflated, some didn't deflate, others failed. Delicious overall.

Marinate 1 chicken breast in oregano, salt, pepper and lemon juice.

Tahini time!

Toast sesame seeds for 10 minutes. Fragrant.

Blended in the magic bullet with 1/4 cup olive oil.

Add garlic and 1 tbsp lemon juice. The acid thickens the mixture.

Remove seeds and grate half a cucumber. Squeeze out excess water.

Drain the cucumber again, sprinkle salt to draw out more liquid.

Take a great big spoonful and mix with cucumber. Add garlic.

Something else was missing.. donair sauce. 2/3 cup evaporated milk, 1 spoonful of sugar, 1 garlic clove, 1 tbsp granulated garlic, slowly drizzle in 2 tbsp vinegar to thicken. I do not like the sauce too sweet. 


Snacking simultaneously... 

Cook chicken

Chicken and falafel

The sauces make the meal. The drippy stuff is the sweet garlic sauce, the white is tzatziki, thick chunky stuff is tahini sauce.
