Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Lamb Kofte, Herby Tabbouleh, Tzatziki & Pitta

Boil a kettle 

Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C (fan)/ 425°F/ Gas 7

Add the bulgur wheat to a pot with plenty of boiled water and a pinch of salt (the same as you would for pasta) and cook over a high heat for 10-15 min or until tender with a slight bite, then drain and return to the pot

2 Lamb Kofte, Herby Tabbouleh, Tzatziki & Pitta

Meanwhile, peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

Add the chopped garlic, ground cumin and panko breadcrumbs to the lamb mince

Add a generous pinch of both salt and pepper and give everything a good mix up (clean hands is the best way!)

Divide the lamb mince into 6 [12] and shape them into koftes

3 Lamb Kofte, Herby Tabbouleh, Tzatziki & Pitta

Add the koftes to a baking tray 

Put the tray in the oven and cook for 12-15 min or until cooked through and golden 

4 Lamb Kofte, Herby Tabbouleh, Tzatziki & Pitta

Meanwhile, grate 1/2 [1] cucumber[s], deseed (scrape the seeds out with a teaspoon) and dice the remaining cucumber

Dice the tomato[es]

Trim and finely slice the spring onion[s]

Strip the mint leaves from their stems and chop them finely

Chop the parsley finely, including the stalks

Cut the lemon[s] in half

5 Lamb Kofte, Herby Tabbouleh, Tzatziki & Pitta

Combine the natural yoghurt, half of the chopped mint and grated cucumber in a small bowl with a pinch of salt and pepper – this is your tzatziki

6 Lamb Kofte, Herby Tabbouleh, Tzatziki & Pitta

Add the diced cucumber, tomato, sliced spring onion, chopped parsley and the remaining chopped mint to the pan with the cooked and drained bulgur wheat

Add 2 tbsp [4 tbsp] olive oil and squeeze in the juice of 1/2 [1] lemon, season with a generous pinch of salt and give everything a good mix up – this is your tabbouleh

7 Lamb Kofte, Herby Tabbouleh, Tzatziki & Pitta

Add the wholemeal pitta to a baking tray 

Put the tray in the oven for 2-3 min or until warmed through

Cut the remaining lemon into wedges
