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.
