An interesting meat mixture in a pitta pocket.

Serves 4 
  • 1/2 large white onion, roughly chopped 
  • 2 cloves garlic, smashed 
  • 1/2 small bunch fresh parsley 
  • 450g ground beef 
  • 1 small tomato, diced finely 
  • 1/4 teaspoon garam masala 
  • 1/4 cup toasted pine nuts 
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice 
  • Kosher salt 
  • 6 pieces pita (whole wheat or regular), cut into halves 
  • olive oil, for brushing 

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C. In a food processor, combine the onions, garlic, and parsley until finely minced. Remove to a large bowl and add in the beef, tomato, garam masala, pine nuts, and lemon juice. Season with salt. Mix with your hands until well combined. 

Arrange the pita halves on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Fill each half with about 2 tablespoons of the meat mixture, flattening it out so the filling is even. Brush each quarter on both sides with a little olive oil. Sprinkle salt on top. Bake for 20 minutes, turning once halfway through. Pitas should be browned and crispy.

Serve with a side of couscous.
