Greek wraps

This is another great meal that the kids can help with or build themselves. It is also another great option for adults to make into a salad.
Servings: 5 family members

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef or minced chicken or turkey will work, too
  • 1 Tbsp cooking oil
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • 1 cup spinach chopped very fine
  • whole wheat or white pita bread
  • 1 cup lettuce of choice shredded
  • 1 large tomato cut into strips
  • 1 cucumber peeled and cut into long strips
  • 1 small red onion sliced (this is for the big kids and adults)
  • 1 can sliced olives 8 ounce can
  • 1 cup hummus of choice

Sauce Ingredients

  • ¾ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • ¼ cup cucumber peeled and minced (you can use the scraps from the first cucumber or a small piece of that cucumber depending on its size)
  • fresh black pepper

Instructions

  • To make the sauce, mix together the yogurt, juice from the lemon, garlic, cucumber, and pepper. Place in the refrigerator until you’re ready to serve the meal.
  • In a large sauté pan, heat the cooking oil and garlic. Cook the garlic for 1-2 minutes.
  • Add the meat to the pan and cook through.
  • Season with the oregano and add in the chopped spinach. Toss to combine everything.
  • Warm up the pitas in the microwave for about 30 seconds.
  • To build the pita wraps, spread the sauce and hummus over the pita, top with the beef mixture and then the lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, and olives.
  • For babies, you can cut the pita into small strips as well and serve all ingredients separately on a plate.

Notes

Instead of making pita wraps, you can serve all ingredients over white rice, salad greens, or sautéed kale.
