Green Pepper and Mushroom Pitas

What you need: 

8 oz. package of sliced mushrooms
1-2 green peppers
1/4 cup chopped onion (or substitute onion powder)
a little veggie oil for frying
salt and pepper (to taste)
garlic powder
2 pita pockets

What you do: 

This is definitely quick and easy, I cook it all the time whenever I haven't time to cook anything more involved!
1. Chop up the pepper(s) into strips. Heat up a little oil in the frying pan, and start frying the peppers. After 2 or 3 minutes, add the mushrooms.
2. Once the mushrooms start cooking down, add the spices to taste. The coriander really makes the taste for this! Just a little garlic will do, and be careful not to add too much pepper (I have a tendency to do that).
3. When the peppers are about at the softness you like (I prefer mine very cooked, others prefer them still semi-raw), throw the pitas in the toaster - don't forget to open them up at the edge to let the steam out or you'll burn yourself!
4. Once they're toasted comes the hard part - getting the peppers and mushrooms into the pita! Its not that bad though. But the combination with the vegan bread is extra good.
More or less mushrooms can be used, and different types as well (not sure how different peppers would taste, I love my greens!). This is also good without the vegan pita bread, as I eat it by itself sometimes when I don't have vegan bread on hand. Its also good over pasta (as most veggies are!)
