Warmer weather calls for lighter fare that you can enjoy with a glass of rosé or a summer brew. We love to light the grill and toss our favorite protein over the open flame. Just make sure it’s seasoned! Our friends at Weber Seasonings® have a variety of options for you to choose from for your next grill session.
Grilled Peppers on Pita Points with Hummus and Feta Cheese
Yield: 6 to 8 servings
Prep Time: 10 minutes
- 3 bell peppers, quartered, piths removed
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1/4 cup white wine
- 1-1/2 tablespoons Weber® Zesty Lemon Seasoning
- 3 to 4 pita bread
- 1 cup prepared hummus
- 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
- 1/3 cup feta cheese crumbles
Combine peppers, 1/4 cup olive oil, white wine and seasoning in a resealable plastic bag. Let sit 30 minutes for flavors to develop.
Preheat grill to medium heat. Brush pita bread with olive oil. Grill pitas for 5 to 7 minutes on direct medium heat; turning once halfway through cooking. Remove from grill, cool and cut each pita into 6 to 8 triangles. Set aside.
Combine hummus and crushed red pepper in a small bowl, mix thoroughly. Set aside.
Grill peppers 10 to 12 minutes over direct medium heat until peppers are blistered and softened. Turn once, halfway through grilling. Note: use a long set of tongs to turn peppers due to potential flair-ups from the wine.
Remove peppers from the grill; cool and chop finely.
Spread approximately 1 tablespoon hummus on each of the pita points. Divide chopped peppers evenly among pita points; sprinkle with feta cheese. The remaining hummus can be refrigerated for future use.
