  • Yield: 5 servings (1 serving: 1 1/2 cups vegetable mixture plus 8 pita wedges).


  • 8 ounces fresh shiitake mushrooms
  • 1 1/2 pounds eggplant, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 1/4 cups frozen whole-kernel corn, thawed
  • Olive oil-flavored vegetable cooking spray
  • 4 ounces reduced-fat Havarti cheese, diced
  • 1 cup finely chopped sweet red pepper

  • 3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil

Remove and discard mushroom stems. Place mushrooms, eggplant, and corn in a large roasting pan coated with cooking spray. Coat eggplant mixture with cooking spray; toss, and coat again with cooking spray. Bake at 450° for 20 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring occasionally. Let cool.

Combine eggplant mixture, cheese, and next 3 ingredients in a large bowl; toss lightly.

Combine vinegar and next 3 ingredients in a jar; cover tightly, and shake vigorously. Pour vinegar mixture over vegetable mixture; toss lightly.

Cut each pita round into 8 wedges; place on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 400° for 5 minutes or until crisp.

To serve, place lettuce on 5 plates. Top each with 1 1/2 cups vegetable mixture. Serve with toasted pita wedges.
