Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1/4 cup plain, low-fat yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 pound ground lamb
  • 1/4 cup minced onions
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
  • 1 teaspoon coriander
  • Pita bread, for serving
  • 1/2 English cucumber, sliced
  • 1 large tomato, sliced
  • 1/2 cup shredded green cabbage

Directions

Combine tahini, yogurt, lemon juice, zest, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper in a bowl; whisk until smooth. Set aside.

In a bowl, gently mix together lamb, onions, parsley, mint, coriander, salt and pepper. Form into 12 (3/4-inch-thick) patties.

Heat a dry cast iron skillet over medium heat. Working in batches, cook patties until just cooked through, about 4 minutes per side. Let rest for 5 minutes.

Serve patties with pita bread, cucumbers, tomatoes, cabbage and sauce.
