This is pita containing fried plantains, avocado, arugula, and portabello mushrooms.

Recipe Ingredients

  • ¾ cup coconut oil
  • 1 semi-ripe plantain, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 3 portobello mushroom caps, cut into strips
  • 1 avocado - peeled, pitted and sliced
  • 4 cups coarsely chopped arugula
  • 2 warmed pita bread rounds, cut in half

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Heat the coconut oil in a skillet over medium heat, and cook the plantain pieces just until tender but still firm. Remove from heat, and drain on paper towels. Stand the plantain pieces on end, and with a small dish or the bottom of a cup, gently flatten the plantains. Return to oil, and continue cooking until golden brown. Remove from heat, and drain on paper towels.
  2. 2 Place the mushrooms in the skillet with remaining coconut oil over medium heat, and cook until tender.
  3. 3 Stuff pita bread halves with equal amounts of the plantain, mushrooms, avocado, and arugula to serve.

  1. delish!
  2. absolutely the best very filling
  3. This was SO good. I couldn't find coconut oil so I used sesame instead. It turned out great but I am going to try and find the coconut. The flavors compliment each other so well and the textures blend beautifully.
  4. I did not care for this. I thought is was bland. Interesting dish though.
  5. This was such an excellent combination of flavors and textures! Sweet savory creamy crispy--wonderful! And it was so easy to make. I think this would also make a great salad--with the oil from the mushrooms and the avocado you wouldn't even need dressing. This was my first time cooking plantains but it definitely won't be - Read more ...
  6. Surprisingly good. I like all of the ingredients separately but I was unsure of how they would go together. We only needed 1/2 cup of oil and about 1/4 of the cup was left over after cooking. Great flavor.
  7. I don't know whether it was just because I was starving or what but this was one of the most delicious things I've ever tasted. Can't wait to have the leftovers...
  8. This dish was awesome nice combinations and taste wonderful.
  9. Excellent beats a burger any day. Added a little horseradish for extra flavor. Loved it!
  10. This was really good. The flavor is so complex and exciting. I couldn't find coconut oil so I just used canola... I'm sure it would have been even better with the coconut. Also I used a little less arugula because I didn't have that much on hand. It was still really yummy. Highly recommended!
