1 large cucumber, very thinly sliced
1/2 cup crumbled low-fat feta cheese
2 1/2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
3/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
Salt and pepper to taste
1 1/2 pounds ground turkey
1 cup (about one 7-ounce container) roasted red pepper hummus
2 teaspoons ground coriander
4 whole-wheat pitas, halved
Lettuce leaves (optional)
1. In a bowl, combine cucumber, feta, vinegar, 2 tablespoons parsley, 1 tablespoon olive oil, and a pinch each salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate*.
2. In a separate bowl, mix turkey, 1/2 cup hummus, remaining parsley, coriander, and pepper to taste. Shape mixture into eight patties, each about 1/2-inch thick. Place a cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat and add 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil. Add four patties and cook until browned and cooked through, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer to plate, add remaining olive oil, and cook remaining patties.
3. In a bowl, combine remaining 1/2 cup hummus with 1 tablespoon hot water. Spread mixture inside each pita half. Place a burger instead each pita half and fill with cucumber mixture and lettuce, if desired.
*If you don’t like cucumbers or feta, substitute this blend by mixing 1 teaspoon each chopped red onion and chopped cooked beets.
