Makes 4 pitas



  • 1 Tbsp. grapeseed oil
  • 1 can chickpeas, drained
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1 tsp. coriander
  • 1 tsp. sweet Spanish paprika
  • ¾ tsp. turmeric
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. cayenne pepper

Garlic Dill Sauce

  • ¼ cup hummus
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • ¾ tsp. dill (2-3 tsp. fresh)
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2-3 tsp. water (to thin)

To Serve

  • 4 pita bread
  • Sliced tomato
  • Sliced red onion
  • Romaine lettuce, chopped
  • Pickled turnip


Drain and rinse chickpeas. In a large skillet, sauté chickpeas with oil and spices until slightly crispy and golden brown. Set aside to cool slightly.

In a small mixing bowl mix hummus, lemon juice, dill, and garlic. Thin with water if necessary and season to taste with salt if needed. The sauce should be pourable but not runny, have a zingy garlic freshness and hint of dill.

To serve, warm pita in oven or skillet.  Top with a generous amount of lettuce, fresh tomatoes, thinly sliced onion, and pickled turnips.  Add a large portion of seasoned chickpeas and garlic dill sauce. Wrap and serve immediately.
