Lamb Pita with Pickled Squash


  • Total Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 pound ground lamb
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 yellow squash, cut into matchsticks
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 ounces crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 large round pitas, halved
  • 4 large lettuce leaves

Instructions

  1. In a bowl, mix the lamb with the cumin, cinnamon, and 1 teaspoon of salt. Form into 8 small patties and set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the squash, vinegar, oil, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Stir, and let sit to marinate while you cook the lamb.
  3. Preheat a skillet to medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil. When the skillet is very hot, add the lamb patties (do this in two batches if you need to) and let them cook without touching for 3 minutes, then flip. Cook another 3-4 minutes until well browned on both sides.
  4. When the lamb is cooked, drain the squash through a strainer. Assemble the pitas with the lettuce, two lamb patties each, some of the squash, and crumbled feta. Eat immediately. Enjoy!
