Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Add the Ground Lamb (1 lb) , Fresh Dill (1 Tbsp) , Mediterranean Spices (1/2 Tbsp) , Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (1 pinch) , Salt (to taste) , and Ground Black Pepper (to taste) to a large bowl.
Step 2
Grate the Shallot (1) and Garlic (1 clove) over the meat, wiping off any excess stuck to the grater. Mix everything together with your hands - don't be afraid to get your hands dirty!
Step 3
Scoop a fourth of the meat and form it into a burger. With your thumb, make an indent on the top of the patty. Transfer to a plate and repeat for the next three patties. Place the patties in the fridge for 30 minutes to one hour.
Step 4
Fire up the grill to a medium flame. Once hot, place the burgers down and cook 6-7 minutes on each side - only flipping once! Once cooked to desired doneness, transfer to a clean plate to rest. Add Pita Bread (4) to grill and heat until charred.
Step 5
For the pesto, combine the Fresh Mint Leaves (1 cup) , Pistachios (1/4 cup) , and Olive Oil (1/4 cup) in a food processor and pulse. Adjust olive oil as needed. Season with Salt (to taste) . Fold in Feta Cheese (to taste) .
Step 6
For the yogurt sauce, combine Fat-Free Greek Yogurt (1/2 cup) , Lemon Juice (1 Tbsp) , Fresh Dill (to taste) , Salt (to taste) , and Ground Black Pepper (to taste) in a bowl and stir.
Step 7
To assemble, put burgers into pitas and top with pesto and yogurt sauce.
