Using turkey slashes fat; mixing a milk-soaked pita into the patty keeps it moist.


Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    4 whole-wheat pitas (6 1/2 inches each)
    1/4 cup skim milk
    1 small onion, finely chopped
    2 cloves garlic
    2 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
    4 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano or 1 teaspoon dried
    1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
    1 tsp salt
    3/4 pound lean ground lamb
    2 teaspoon olive oil
    3 cups arugula
    1 medium tomato, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
    1 red onion, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
    1/3 cup crumbled feta



Directions

Heat oven to 350°F. Cut 1/4 off each pita (a half-moon shape from 10 o'clock to 2 o'clock). Chop half-moons, transfer to a bowl and sprinkle with milk. Let soak 5 minutes. Drain and squeeze out excess milk. Purée soaked bread, onion, garlic, herbs and lemon juice in a blender or food processor. Transfer purée to a bowl. Add lamb, season with salt and pepper and combine. Form into 4 patties. Wrap pitas in foil and heat until warm, about 8 minutes. (Or place pitas between sheets of paper towel and microwave until warm, about 30 seconds.) Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Cook burgers to medium, 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Open each pita, stuff with arugula. Add burger, tomato and red onion to pita. Sprinkle with feta.
