Tuesday will be here before you know it.
Turkey Kofta Sandwiches
adapted from Everyday Food
1 lb ground turkey (or chicken)
1 tbs salt
2 tbs Syrian Allspice (Different from American Allspice which can be used in baking- this is a blend of black pepper, cumin, cinnamon and other flavors to create a savory spice rub or as my mother describes it – “it makes kofta….kofta!”- it can be found in Mediterranean markets or you can make your own). No luck? Black pepper and a pinch of cumin will work perfectly).
2 scallions, cleaned and chopped
1 small white onion, diced very fine or pureed
In a large bowl, mix turkey, spices and green and white onions. Mix thoroughly with your hands (get on in there). Shape mixture into ovals or small patties.
(Cooking note: These are wonderful on the grill, but broiling will work just as well).Place patties on a lightly greased baking sheet, about an inch apart. Broil on high for 3-4 minutes, then flip over and broil for another 2-4 minutes. Watch carefully, they will cook quickly. Serves 4 (as sandwiches)
1 seedless cucumber (I like the small persian ones), diced
1 tbs dill (fresh or dried)
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 c. NF greek yogurt
In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients, mix thoroughly. Cover and chill.
For assembling sandwiches:
2 large loaves of Syrian Bread or 4 individual Wraps
Vegetables: Lettuce, thinly sliced tomatoes, cucumbers, red peppers and/or red onion
Olive Oil for drizzling (optional)
Feta cheese (optional)
Splitting Syrian bread into 2 separate loaves (by pulling the halves apart at the seams); layer in the koftas, yogurt sauce and vegetables. (Adding some (or all) of the “optionals” above would make this sandwich divine!)
Gently roll up……
Monday, we crushed you.
