HECK Veggie Super Greens Pittas

StarterServes 2

With the BBQ weather back this weekend, it’s time for some alfresco dining with a twist.  These Super Green Pittas use HECK’s new veggie range and accompanied by homemade coleslaw and pickle are a lighter alternative for a simple summer lunch in the garden.


1 pack HECK Super Greens Balls

2 wholewheat pitta breads

50g tzatziki (shop bought is fine)

For the slaw

200ml natural yoghurt

Small handful fresh mint, roughly chopped

Small handful fresh coriander, roughly chopped

Small handful fresh parsley, roughly chopped

100g each of white and red cabbage, shredded

80g red onion, finely sliced

40g kale, finely chopped

Juice of 1 lemon

Sea salt

For the pickle

130g spiralized raw, peeled beetroot (cut into matchsticks if you don’t have a spiralizer)

1 small fresh red chilli, sliced

110ml white wine vinegar

30g white Sugar

130ml water


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°c / 160°c fan / gas mark 5.
  2. Put the vinegar and sugar in a small saucepan and heat on a low heat until the sugar has dissolved.
  3. Add the chilli and beetroot to a bowl and pour over the sugar and vinegar mix. Allow the mixture to cool and then place in the fridge (this can be prepared the night before and will help the flavours develop too).
  4. For the slaw, mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl and season to taste (again, the slaw can also be prepared the night before and refrigerated, or simply prepare it on the day).
  5. Place the Super Greens Balls onto skewers (allow four balls per skewer), place them on a lightly oiled baking tray and cook in the pre-heated oven for 8-10 mins.
  6. Remove the skewers from the oven and place on the BBQ with the pittas for a few minutes more.
  7. Load the pittas with the balls, slaw and pickle to serve.
