These pitas are the perfect low-fuss weekend lunch for the whole family. If you’re not a fan of lamb, use turkey or beef mince instead. You could also throw the pita bread and capsicum in the pan for a minute to get nice grill marks.

Ingredients

Lean lamb mince

400 g

Onion

½ medium, finely chopped

Fresh mint

2 tbs, finely chopped

Ground coriander

½ tsp

Wholemeal pita bread

4 large, (4 x 70g), halved, warmed

Cos lettuce

1 cup(s), (80g)

Red capsicum

99% fat-free plain Greek yoghurt

¼ cup(s), (60g)

Oil spray

  1. Place lamb, onion, mint and coriander in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper and mix to combine. Shape into 8 (1cm-thick) patties.
  2. Lightly spray a grill pan or barbecue with oil and heat over medium-high heat. Cook patties for about 4 minutes on each side or until lightly charred and cooked through.
