What you need:

  • 1/2 cup low-fat cream cheese or any other low-fat spreadable cheese

  • 4 whole-wheat pitas

Equipment and supplies

  • Food processor
  • Butter knife (for spreading)

What to do:

  1. With an adult's help, place cream cheese and herbs into a food processor.
  2. Pulse until herbs are evenly distributed throughout cheese.
  3. Spread 1-2 tablespoons of herbed cream cheese onto the inside of each pita.
  4. Stuff each pita evenly with grilled veggies.
