Here’s a great recipe for a busy weekday dinner!
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
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
In a food processor, blend the turkey strips until ground. Add the remaining ingredients and pulse until well blended.
Pre-heat your grill or grill pan.
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.
Grill for about 8 minutes per side.
