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


  • 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.
