1/4 spanish (red) onion, finely diced
1 clove garlic, crushed
2 tbsp breadcrumbs
150g low fat natural yoghurt
2 tbsp chopped coriander
Juice of 1/2 lemon
2 small wholemeal pita pockets, halvedMixed lettuce to serve
In a mixing bowl combine the mince, onion, garlic, egg, breadcrumbs and 1 tablespoon of the coriander, season with salt and pepper then use your hands to thoroughly combine the ingredients. Next take roughly golfball sized lumps of mince and shape them into little patties. You should end up with 8 in total.
Heat some olive oil in a frypan over medium heat, and cook the patties for about 3 minutes on each side.
Next make a yoghurt dressing by combining the yoghurt, lemon juice and remaining coriander. Season with salt and pepper and mix well.
To serve, fill the pita bread pockets with mixed lettuce leaves (and whatever else you fancy - i used cucumber and carrot), two of the patties and top with yoghurt.
See what I mean? Delicious and good for you! It's a win win situation :-)
