veggie whole wheat pita sandwich and hummus

As you can see, I've been obsessed in dough making these days.  My reasons are simple.  1) I have control with my ingredients and 2) I like to eat bread when it is fresh out of the oven.  The only problem is that it takes a bit of time to make bread.  So it's not so easy for many of us during the week.  

So far, I think pita bread is probably one of the easiest to make.  It still requires a good couple of hours. I like pita because it is light and it goes with a lot of vegetables.  I found this recipe on Pinterest as usual.  The blog is called Yummy Healthy Easy.  Just like the blog's name, this whole wheat pita bread recipe is yummy, healthy and easy.  

I wish you a good week ahead.
