All hail the pita! It holds pretty much anything you put in its roomy pockets, making it among the most capacious of breads. So if you’re going to make a pita sandwich, it better be fully loaded. This one does not disappoint: in addition to rounds of roasted sweet potato, it’s packed with slices of creamy avocado, an herby cucumber salad, pumpkin seeds, and a spicy harissa mayo.

1

Adjust racks to middle and top positions and preheat oven to 450 degrees. Wash and dry all produce. Slice sweet potatoes into ¼-inch-thick rounds. Toss on a baking sheet with a drizzle of olive oil, 1 tsp harissa powder (2 tsp for 4 servings; you’ll use more later), and a pinch of salt and pepper. Roast on middle rack, flipping halfway through, until tender, 18-20 minutes.

2

Meanwhile, mince or grate 1 clove garlic (2 cloves for 4 servings). Halve cucumber lengthwise; thinly slice crosswise into half-moons. Pick and roughly chop fronds from dill until you have 2 tsp (4 tsp for 4). Halve, pit, and peel avocado, then thinly slice.

3

In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, a pinch of minced garlic, and a pinch of harissa powder. Taste and add more garlic and harissa powder if desired. Season with salt and pepper.

4

In a medium bowl, toss together cucumber, chopped dill, vinegar, a drizzle of olive oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper.

5

Halve pitas and place on a second baking sheet. Once sweet potatoes have 2-3 minutes left, add pitas to top rack and toast until warmed through (they should still be soft and flexible).

6

Spread harissa mayo inside each toasted pita half, then fill with sweet potatoes, avocado, a few pepitas, and a small amount of cucumber salad. Divide stuffed pitas between plates. Serve with remaining cucumber salad on the side; sprinkle with remaining pepitas.
