EASY TURKISH KOFTA PITA SANDWICH
This easy kofta pita sandwich is robust and full of Greek flavors. I used Grass fed flavor-packed ground lamb on top of Greek pita with Vivys Baobab sauce, fresh veggies, and a little poppy seed dressing. This is a quick meal for days you want to impress without the stress. This is what you need:
FOR THE BAKED KOFTA
1 lb ground lamb or beef
2 tbsp plain coconut flour
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp salt
2 tsp turmeric
2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp red pepper flakes, or more
1 tsp paprika
FOR THE PITA FIXINGS
Greek pita or flatbread
Add your Greens ( I used spinach, baby kale)
Fresh Cilantro as needed
3 Sliced tomatoes
1 English cucumber, sliced into rounds
1 onion, sliced as preferred
1 tsp red pepper flakes or more
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the lamb, egg, coconut flour, and garlic with the salt and other spices. Kneed together and form the lamb mix into small balls. Place at least 1 inch apart in a baking pan.
Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until brown and well cooked.
Prepare the Greek pita bread, add your vegetables layer by layer, Baobab sauce or hummus, and the rest of the fixings. Add your kofta lamb balls 3 to 4 balls works great and then sprinkle more paprika or pepper.
Finish off with more hummus or Baobab sauce.
