      This looks amazing and really filling on a chilly November day like today. I love soup and sandwiches for lunch or dinner and these made with Pita bread and filling look delicious. Lovely pictures and great idea for switching from plain bread.

      This is a great sandwich. It looks so good with the tomato soup. I make an easy homemade tomato soup and shall pair it with your sandwich. I will use vegan cheese or leave it off. Thanks for the great recipe. I love that it has protein also.

      Thanks JayeWisdom for your comments. It is always nice to receive complements. I think potatoes would be just as good.

      I knew I shouldn't have skipped breakfast this morning! This hub made me hungry, and a pita bread sandwich with most of your ingredients (skipping the rice, but substituting about two tablespoons of cooked chopped potato) sounds great!
