Slimming World Recipe:- Moroccan Turkey Kofta Pittas

This is a tasty, simple and perfect Spring/Summer meal.  It's light but full of flavour and is great to graze on with cous cous, salad and halloumi. You can adjust the amount of chillies to suit your personal taste, personally I think this dish is served best with a bit of spice, but if it gets to much this delicious syn free Tzatziki can cool you down!

Extra Easy syn value:- Syn free

Healthy Extras:- B (make sure it is a SW approved wholemeal pitta)

You will need:- 

For the kebabs:-
500g extra lean minced turkey 
1 bunch spring onions, finely chopped
the juice of ½ lemon
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
2 teaspoons of smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger
sea salt & black pepper
1 fresh red chilli, finely chopped
1 60g wholemeal pitta bread per person, toasted
50g rocket
tzatziki, to serve
1tbsp fat free natural yoghurt

For the Tzatziki:-
125g fat free yoghurt
1/4 cucumber finely chopped
1 tsp lemon juice
1 clove of garlic, grated finely


In a bowl add the turkey mince, spring onions, lemon juice, garlic, paprika, ginger, seasoning and chilli in a bowl and mix well.  Add a tablespoon of fat free yoghurt, this keeps the kebabs juicy.

Mould the turkey into small pattis and then skewer on a wooden kebab stick

Heat some low calorie spray on a griddle pan (or frying pan if you don't have one!) and cook the kebabs, turning regularly to cook through on a medium heat

Meanwhile, to make the Tzatziki, combine the yoghurt, cucumber, lemon juice and garlic together

Serve the kebabs in toasted wholemeal pittas with cous cous. I also dry fried 45g of low fat halloumi as my healthy extra A.
