Veggie Stuffed Pitas and Smoothies

Well, the inevitable happened. Vegan Mom and I have the boys' cold. Blah. The motivation to cook was pretty low tonight, and the fridge is starting to get bare. So, we thawed out the leftover pitas from a few night ago, made some hummus, chopped up veggies, and went crazy. The pita pictured here has hummus, tomatoes, cucumbers, avocado, and alfalfa sprouts. We make the hummus from Vegan Lunch Box because the kids like it. I like something more garlicky, or with roasted peppers.

We supplemented the meal with a smoothie. This is a great way to get fruit into the kids, and it feels great on a sore throat. Into a blender I put:
- a ripe mango, peeled and cut into chunks
- 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
- 3/4 cup frozen raspberries
- 1/3 pkg of silken tofu
- 3 cups soymilk
- sugar to taste
