Meatless Monday Greek Style

By Estelle Hayes

This meal is so easy, so simple and so satisfying. My favorite farmer’s market falafel stand makes them like no other, but I couldn’t wait until next Friday to get my fix so, I had to try my hand at this spectacular flavor combination.

Whole wheat naan (got mine at Whole Foods)
Olive oil
1 batch of za’atar in a seperate bowl (here’s my recipe)
1 tomato, diced
1 cucumber, diced
1 bunch fresh mint, roughly chopped
1/2 cup kalamata olives, roughly chopped
1/4 cup feta cheese (optional)

Heat a teaspoon of olive oil in a pan and warm both sides of the naan. Once your outer side is nice and toasty, transfer it to a plate lined with a paper towel or parchment paper. Add a bit of olive oil to your za’atar and stir. Use a pastry brush to generously coat the inside of your naan with za’atar. Then fill with tomatoes, cucumber, mint, olives and feta as if you were preparing a burrito. Wrap it up (keeping it seals with your paper towel or parchment and eat it up.
