  • 1 red capsicum, seeded and coarsely chopped

  • 150g cherry tomatoes, coarsely chopped

  • 80g burghul, soaked in hot water for 15 mins, drained well

  • ½ Lebanese cucumber, coarsely chopped

  • ¼ cup coarsely chopped mint

  • ¼ cup coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley

  • 3 tbsp of tahini

  • 3 tbsp lemon juice

  • To serve

  • 12 small wholemeal pita bread, warmed in the oven


  • 1.

    Combine oil, lemon juice, herbs and garlic in a bowl, season to taste with salt and freshly ground pepper. Add the lamb to the bowl, mixing through the marinade to coat each piece of lamb. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate to marinate overnight.

Meanwhile, for tahini dressing, stir ingredients in a bowl to combine, thin with 3 tbsp hot water to drizzling consistency and season to taste with salt and pepper.
