Healthy souvlaki recipe
My husband found this recipe somewhere online!! I made a few little tweaks and have to say its a winner! Taste of lamb, fresh herbs and crunchy potatoes
750g starchy potatoes (such as segabo), cleaned, cubed
4 tbsp olive oil
3 tsp dried oregano
500g lamb mince
1 red onion, finely chopped
2 tbsp pomegranate molasses
1½ tsp dried oregano
1 tsp crushed garlic
zest of 1 lemon
½ tbsp olive oil
¾ cup Greek yoghurt
½ cup Persian-style feta
½ small Lebanese cucumber, finely diced
½ cup semi-dried tomatoes
½ red onion, peeled, finely sliced
2 tbsp fresh oregano leaves
¼ cup basil leaves, coarsely torn
Handful of parsley, fresh tomatoes and lettuce
Preheat the oven to 200C.
Arrange the chopped potatoes in a single layer in a baking dish. Drizzle the olive oil and toss to coat and sprinkle with dried oregano,. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden and crisp.
Meanwhile, combine the mince, onion, pomegranate molasses, oregano, garlic and lemon zest in a bowl. Place a large frying pan over medium heat and add the olive oil. When hot, add the mince mixture and cook for 5 to 7 minutes or until cooked through and caramelised.
For the whipped feta, add the yoghurt and feta to a bowl. Use a fork to whip the mixture, then add the cucumber (depending on the thickness of the yoghurt, this may make more than you need).
To serve, dollop hummus over the base of a large serving bowl. Scatter with semi-dried tomatoes then add the fries. Spoon over the mince mixture then top with the whipped feta, sliced onion and fresh herbs.
I added some extra tomatoes and lettuce for more greenery!!!
