From the Test Kitchen

To give these pitas an elevated filling, we’re marinating crumbly feta cheese with fresh lemon zest and a drizzle of olive oil to tuck in alongside beets and roasted broccoli. For bright, complementary flavor, it’s all served with a side of shishito peppers roasted with za’atar—a favorite blend of herbs and spices like sumac, thyme, and more.

  • 1 Lemon
  • ½ lb Broccoli
  • 4 oz Cooked Beets
  • 1½ oz Feta Cheese
  • ½ cup Tzatziki (Cucumber-Yogurt Sauce)

Prepare & start the broccoli:
1 Prepare & start the broccoli:

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the bottom 1/2 inch of the broccoli stem; cut the broccoli into small florets. Place on a sheet pan; drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer on one side of the sheet pan. Roast 5 minutes. Leaving the oven on, remove from the oven. 

Roast the peppers & broccoli:
2 Roast the peppers & broccoli:

Meanwhile, place the peppers in a bowl; drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and half the za’atar (you will have extra). Stir to coat. Carefully transfer to the other side of the sheet pan of partially roasted broccoli and arrange in an even layer. Roast 9 to 11 minutes, or until the vegetables are browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven. 

Prepare the remaining ingredients:
3 Prepare the remaining ingredients:

Meanwhile, zest the lemon to get 1 teaspoon (if you don’t have a zester, use a peeler to remove the yellow rind of the lemon, avoiding the white pith; mince the rind). Quarter and deseed the lemon. In a bowl, combine the lemon zest, cheese (crumbling before adding), and 2 teaspoons of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. On a paper towel-lined cutting board, halve the beets lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. In a bowl, combine the sliced beets, the juice of 2 lemon wedges, and a drizzle of olive oil; season with salt and pepper.

Transfer the warmed pitas to a work surface and carefully unwrap.
