Ground turkey breast is mixed with Mediterranean spices to create flavorful, protein-packed kebabs. Serve with salad and vegetables and a side of plain Greek yogurt.

1 1/2 pounds turkey breast, deboned, trimmed of skin and cut into thin strips

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 teaspoon olive oil

2 eggs

1/4 cup almond meal (more if needed)

1 teaspoon cumin

1 teaspoon sweet paprika

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

dash of salt (optional)

2 Tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped

1 Tablespoon fresh mint, finely chopped


  1. In a food processor, blend the turkey strips until ground. Add the remaining ingredients and pulse until well blended.

  2. Pre-heat your grill or grill pan.

  3. Lightly grease your hands, then press the meat into the wooden skewers until it covers about 3-4 inches in an elongated meatball shape. If the meat is not sticking then add some more almond meal.
