I tried this wonderful dish in the lively district of Marais in Paris. In order to enjoy it at the nearby Canal Saint-Martin, I ordered it to take away. The pita bread was filled with hummus, yoghurt, pickled onions, cucumber and tomatoes. Next, the mushroom skewers were placed inside the pita, the bread was pressed together and then the wooden skewer was removed. This mushroom shawarma pita was so delicious that I recreated it at home. As I was able to eat at the table this time, I served it on a platter. Whether you make this recipe as a stuffed pita bread or serve it on a platter, the combination of spicy, marinated mushrooms, creamy hummus, pickled onions, fresh vegetables and herbs guarantees an altogether delicious dish.
