- Prepare Bean Spread.
- Brown beef; drain off drippings. Stir in teriyaki sauce and bring to boil. Remove from heat; stir in tomatoes, parsley and onion.
- To serve, cut each pita crosswise in half; brush inside of each half lightly with olive oil. Spread 1 heaping tablespoonful Bean Spread in each half, then fill with desired amount of meat mixture. Serve immediately.
*Bean Spread: Reserving liquid, drain 1 can (16 oz.) garbanzo beans. Measure 2 Tbsp. liquid from beans; 4 teaspoons Kikkoman Teriyaki Marinade & Sauce; 1 Tbsp. olive oil; 1 Tbsp. sesame seed, toasted; 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin (optional) in blender. Cover and process on low speed about 20 seconds to crush sesame seed. Add beans; cover and process on low speed about 30 seconds, or until smooth. Stir in more liquid from beans, 1 Tbsp. at a time, as needed, for spreading consistency.
