Measure 1 Tblsp. of olive oil and add to the bowl. Use a potato masher to mash the contents of the bowl into a smooth paste. Trim off the top and bottom of the beets with a knife. Try to remove as much of the "hairy" roots as possible. Grate beets carefully. Keep aside, DO NOT add to bowl. Chop apple into small pieces about the size of a pencil eraser. Keep aside, DO NOT add to bowl. Cut each pita in half. In each pita pocket spread 1/4 of the bean mixture. Add some chopped apples and grated beets. Enjoy!
