Greek Burger With Arugula and Feta

“This is a delicious and healthy meal in one. Using the pita in the meat makes it so moist! Ground turkey could be used instead of lam, and any kind of lettuce can be substituted for the arugula. This recipe came from Self magazine, and it is one of our favorites!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut 1/4 (triangular shaped) from each pita. Chop the cut out pieces, transfer to a small bowl and sprinkle with milk. Let soak 5 minutes, then drain and squeeze excess milk.
  2. Puree soaked bread, onion, garlic, herbs, and lemon juice in a food processor. Transfer back to bowl and mix in lamb. Season with salt and pepper then form 4 patties.
  3. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat, then add patties. Cook until medium, about 3-4 minutes on each side.
  4. Whisk yogurt, mint, garlic, mustard and honey in a small bowl. Stir in cucumber and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Warm pitas in toaster oven, oven, or microwave if desired. Open each pita and stuff with burger, arugula, and red onion. Add tomato, kalamata olives, and cucumber if desired. Serve with dressing and feta.
