Braised Carrot and Beet Pitas

These veggie-fueled pita sandwiches are packed with a variety of vibrant flavors. Carrots and beets are slowly braised in harissa, a north African chili paste for a savory piquant pop. The carrots and beets are stuffed into pita pockets and joined by sprouts, spinach, onion, and fresh dill. A spectacular spread, made by blending yogurt and feta until silky and smooth, adds a creamy, cooling effect that balances out the  spicy harissa.
