Ingredients

How to make it

  • Toast pine nuts in a small skillet over medium heat, stirring until nuts are barely browned; remove them from skillet and set aside.
  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Add white parts of sliced green onion, cinnamon, salt and pepper; cook until onion is tender, about 2 or 3 minutes.
  • Stir in minced garlic, diced tomatoes and raisins; cook over medium high heat until mixture is almost dry – this should only take a few minutes.
  • Add ground turkey, stirring until meat is cooked through.
  • Remove skillet from heat; stir in green parts of sliced green onion, yogurt and toasted pine nuts.
  • Serve mixture stuffed into warm pita halves with any of the optional garnishes, or just as is.
  • For pizza, butter one side of a pita round and toast in a skillet until browned on the bottom.
  • Place pita on baking sheet, and spread hummus to within ½” of the edges.
  • Top hummus with cooked meat filling, and top with some crumbled feta.
  • Bake at 400 degrees until just warmed through, about 5 minutes.
  • Top with optional ingredients, if desired, of chopped tomatoes, onions, parsley, or anything else you think sounds good!
  • Tzatziki Sauce:
  • 1 cucumber, peeled, cut in half lengthwise, seeds removed from center, cucumber finely diced and pieces squeezed as dry as possible with some paper towels
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 or 3 garlic cloves, freshly minced, to your taste
  • salt, to your taste
  • To prepare tzatziki sauce, mix all ingredients together in a bowl, and allow it to set for a couple hours minimum; keep sauce refrigerated.

    This is so good - I have to thank my friend Kristen for introducing me to it! It was so easy to make with such a unique flavor. I could definitely eat this at least once a week.
    When did you try it as a pizza? Aren't you miss creative?!? Maybe you should come visit me soon and we can go to Aladdin's and get the real thing:)

    I made this with ground beef. It's very good. I'll be making it with ground turkey, then ground pork to see which I like best. This recipe just might rank among one of my favorite sandwiches.

    Oh Krum, This is SO my kind of eats!!
    I must add a few items to tomorrow's groc list. I know what I'll be eating as it snows. Hopefully this is the last stock-up-and-sit-out-the-storm of the season.
    I have a feeling this recipe will be one of my favorites. Thanks.
