Ingredients

Kofta

  • 750g lamb mince
  • ½ large red onion, grated
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp cumin, ground
  • 1 tsp allspice, ground
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • ½ tsp coriander seeds, ground
  • ¼ cup toasted pistachios, finely chopped
  • 1 cup mint leaves, chopped
  • 8 flatbreads or wraps
  • Plenty Heart Smart Safflower Oil

Green sauce

  • 1 cup natural yoghurt
  • 2 tbsp Plenty Flaxseed Oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely grated
  • 1 – 1½ tsp salt (or to taste)
  • 1 cup basil leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 cup mint leaves, finely chopped
  • ½ cup dill leaves, finely chopped
  • ½ cup chives, finely chopped

Garnish

  • 4-8 lemon wedges
  • Handful of mint leaves

Salad

  • 3 small Lebanese cucumbers, sliced into ribbons
  • 1 cup fresh parsley leaves, chopped roughly
  • ¼ cup toasted pepitas

Dressing

  • 1 tbsp Plenty Avocado Oil
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp seeded mustard
  • ¼ – ½ tsp sea salt (or to taste)

Method

  1. To make kofta green dressing sauce, combine green sauce ingredients together and mix well. Allow the herbs to break up a little as you mix. This makes the green bleed into the yoghurt, making our green sauce! Set aside.
  2. To make salad dressing, combine Plenty Avocado Oil, apple cider vinegar, mustard, and salt into a jar. Shake well and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, mix all kofta ingredients together well, cover and refrigerate for an hour so the flavours infuse into the meat.
  4. Shape kofta meat around a skewer into an oblong shape and set onto a lined plate ready for grilling. Once all koftas are shaped, heat a little Plenty Heart Smart Safflower Oil over a medium to high heat pan and start cooking kofta in batches. Cook for a couple of minutes on all sides until the lamb is cooked to medium. Remove from heat and plate. Garnish with plenty of green sauce, lemon wedges and mint.
  5. In a mixing bowl, combine all salad ingredients and toss well. Drizzle with some of the dressing and toss again. Plate and serve with kofta extra green sauce and the flatbreads.
  6. Drizzle/finish with Plenty Avocado Oil.

Plenty Avocado, Flaxseed and “Heart Smart” Saffflower oils are all available in store at Woolworths.
