Spinach pita bread

My take on watermelon bread is this savory and flavourful pita bread made with spinach puree and some spices (no artificial colour). It tastes soooo good, even without any stuffing!

Spinach (spinach sandwich loaf), beetroot (protein frankie), millets (whole grain naan) etc are some of my favorite things to work with.  Used it right, they can turn a simple recipe into a delicious one and this spinach pita bread is definitely one of them.

This spinach pita is rather a bit unusual, one of course because of the way it presents itself! Looks like a watermelon isn’t it? So pretty! But secondly, most importantly, the way it tastes! The usual pita breads are rather plain with only salt as their flavouring but in this dough, I have added a spice paste of coriander along with few aromats that make this bread so delicious, I can promise you will gobble up a few even before stuffing anything in it. In case, you end up with few non-puffed up pita, don’t worry! Pan fry with some butter/ghee and enjoy as a crispy bread. Tastes so good!

I haven’t used any colour to make the ‘stripes of the watermelon’, however you can use a green colour or a black charcoal powder for a more pronounced effect.

If you looking to make a falafel wrap with this delicious savory pita, have a look at my falafel wrap with Egyptian pita bread – aish baladi – made with whole wheat flour and broken wheat (dalia) that is stuffed with ta’ameya. Unlike the widely popular falafel which is primarily made of chickpeas, ta’ameya is made of fava beans. I have used fava beans with dill leaves that gives ta’ameya a unique flavour profile and goes deliciously well with some creamy hummus and tahini sauce.
