Combine filling ingredients.

Toast pitas lightly and halve.

Line each half with a lettuce leaf (this prevents the pita from becoming soggy.)

Tip of the day

Baobab leaves
African cooks use leaves from the massive baobab tree to thicken their stews. Like okra, the leaves give the dish a congealing texture that's characteristic of West African stews. Okra will give a similar effect if you can't find baobab leaves.
