Spicy Hummus and Grilled Peach Piadine

3 Aug

One of our favorite Italian restaurants serves Piadinas. We absolutely love them. It is like salad on a bread. The difficult thing is deciding what kind we want. Typically we end up ordering two. One with hummus and the second one with pesto. Think of piadine as cross between Middle Eastern pita breads and Mexican flour tortillas. They are rolled out to the size of dinner plates and baked on a flat griddle or grill. I made my own verson using fresh whole wheat pita bread. Before grilling the pita bread, I brush it with water to keep it soft. I decided to experiment with the fresh spicy hummus and peaches  I bought at farmers  market today. It was unbelievably good! Next one I made with pesto, arugula, sautéed  wild mushrooms and cherry tomatoes. This turned out delicious as well.

  • pita bread
  • hummus
  • peach, sliced
  • mixed greens

Dressing: wisk together

  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 2 tbs balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard

Place the peach slices on grill. Toss the greens with the dressing.  Turn the peaches on the grill. Put the pita bread on the grill, flip after a minute. Remove almost immediately. You want the pita to stay soft so you can fold it to eat.  Put the pita on a plate and spread hummus on it, top with greens and with the hot peaches off the grill.

Fillings to Try:

• Arugula and mozzarella
• Grilled chicken and pesto
• Grilled portobello
• Grilled eggplant with goat cheese
• Heirloom tomatoes and mixed greens
