Directions

  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic, salt, pepper, and vegetarian burger; cook 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally to crumble up the vegetarian burger.
  2. Add lentils, cumin, and thyme; stir until seasonings become fragrant. Add 1/2 cup water, tomatoes, and bay leaf; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to medium, and cook 15 minutes or until lentils are tender and mixture is thick (add additional water as needed). Discard bay leaf.
  3. Fill each pita half with 1/2 cup lentil mixture. Spoon 1 Tbsp yogurt into each pita half; top with 2 Tbsp cucumber. Sprinkle with mint if desired.
