Turkish lamb köfte with tahini sauce and smashed cucumber salad
Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Soy-Free, Paleo, Mediterranean
25 – 40 Minutes
A smoky spice blend of paprika and cumin infused Turkish flavor, while pine nuts add texture and sweetness into our paleo lamb patties that are served skewered and ready for dipping into nutty tahini.
In your bag
- 1 cucumber
- 1 red bell pepper
- 2 or 3 cloves peeled fresh garlic
- 10 ounces ground lamb
- 3 scallions
- 3 or 4 sprigs fresh cilantro
- 2 tablespoons pine nuts
- Köfte spice blend (onion powder - sweet paprika - granulated garlic - cumin)
- Wooden skewers
- 1 lemon
- 1 tablespoon tahini
If you prefer meatballs, skip the skewers, shape the lamb mixture into ovals, and cook directly in the pan.
Raw garlic can taste harsh to even the most sophisticated palates. Letting it stand with the lightly smashed cucumbers, bell pepper, and a sprinkling of salt for a several minutes will mellow the flavor.
