Ingredients

  • 1 medium sweet potato
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Italian seasoning
  • Garlic Powder
  • Salt & pepper
  • Red onion sliced thinly, to taste
  • 1/2 avocado sliced, or to taste
  • Arugula to taste
  • 2 pieces pita bread

Dressing:

  • 3/4 cup Greek yogurt (I used 2%)
  • 3-4 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 4525F and move the rack to the middle position. Line a baking sheet with foil.
  2. Peel and slice the sweet potato into 1/2" inch thick slices. Cut the larger slices into quarters. Place the pieces on the baking sheet and toss with a tablespoon or so of olive oil. Lightly sprinkle the pieces with Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and salt & pepper. Roast for 30 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, combine dressing ingredients in a small bowl and prep the onion, avocado, and arugula. I did toss the arugula with a tiny bit of olive oil and a squeeze of lemon juice for the photos. This step is optional.
  4. Once the sweet potatoes are ready, let them cool for a couple of minutes and then assemble your pitas. Serve immediately.
