Ingredients

  • 500g 7% fat turkey mince
  • 100g feta, crumbled
  • 2 spring onions, trimmed and finely chopped
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • finely chopped to make 2 tbsp flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cucumber, halved and deseeded
  • 160g thick greek-style yogurt
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • finely chopped to make 2 tbsp mint leaves
  • 320g cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • ½ red onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 wholemeal pittas

Method

  • STEP 1

    Soak eight wooden skewers in warm water for 15 minutes. Mix the mince, feta, spring onions, lemon zest and parsley in a large bowl. Season and use wet hands to shape the mixture around the skewers. Drizzle with the oil.

  • STEP 2

    Put a griddle pan on a medium heat, or heat the grill to medium and, once hot, cook the kebabs for 10-12 minutes, turning occasionally until cooked through.

  • STEP 3

    Meanwhile, coarsely grate the cucumber. Transfer to a clean kitchen towel and gently squeeze out any excess liquid into the sink. Mix the cucumber with the yogurt, garlic, mint and half the lemon juice in a bowl, and season. Combine the tomatoes with the red onion and remaining lemon juice, and season.

  • STEP 4

    Warm the pittas following pack instructions, then halve and serve with the kebabs, tzatziki, and tomato and onion salad.
