MTT: Easy Lamb Koftas With Tzatziki

lamb koftas

Greece and Greek food (like these Easy Lamb Koftas!) is very special to our little family. The in-laws lived on the beautiful island of Meganissi for a long time and my father-in-law is buried there so we will continue to return for holidays as often as possible. It’s the least touristy place I’ve ever visited in Greece; the Onassis family own the next-door island and the summer season attracts wealthy Greeks and Italians rather than lager-lout Brits. Don’t tell anyone – I like to think it’s our secret.

One of the best things about Meganissi is the food. Stifados – fried aubergine – fish – salads – tzatziki. I always come home about 2 stone heavier with a renewed enthusiasm for feta, olives and Greek yoghurt.

Lovely Lamb Koftas

As I’m still trying to lose the last couple of pounds of baby weight I try not to indulge too much but I recently made the discovery that 0% fat Greek yoghurt pretty much tastes the same as the fattening stuff. So now it’s going on everything; breakfast, posh prawn cocktail, pudding, and my personal favourite: tzatziki.

Easy Lamb Koftas With Tzatziki
Cuisine: Greek
  • Serves 2 hungry people
  • 500g lamb mince
  • Handful fresh mint, finely chopped
  • Handful fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • Teaspoon cinnamon
  • Teaspoon cumin
  • Half a red onion, finely diced
  • Salt and pepper
  • 3 tbsp 0% fat greek yoghurt
  • ¼ of a cucumber, finely sliced
  • Handful fresh mint, finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  • Wraps, to serve
  1. Mix together the mince, herbs, spices, onion and seasoning in a large mixing bowl. I like to use a fork or a knife to break up the meat, but then I get in there with my hands to smoosh it all together.
  2. Yum. Use your hands to make small sausages, about half the size of regular sausages. Put to one side.
  3. In a smaller bowl mix together the remaining mint, cucumber, seasoning and yoghurt. Slice the red onion and put to one side.
  4. Heat half a tbsp in a pan on a medium heat and cook the lamb sausages until browned all over, about 5 minutes on each side.
  5. Make up the wraps with the sausages, yoghurt mixture and sliced red onion. Lettuce optional.
