Our low carb high antioxidant GET FIT rotis make a great stand-in for traditional pita bread.
If you don’t see ground lamb at the supermarket, purchase lamb shoulder and ask the butcher to grind it for you. Not a fan of lamb? Substitute ground chicken or arginine rich ground turkey . Tahini is made from ground sesame seeds (it’s a key component in hummus). You can find it in the supermarket near peanut and other nut butters. Leftover tahini sauce, thinned with a little more lemon juice, makes a tasty salad dressing. You can assemble the “tacos” as we do here, or serve the components family style and let everyone assemble their own. Try all the three flavors of GET FIT Roti - Spinach Cumin, Turmeric Pepper and Classic - to get wholesome balanced nutrition and variety
Make-ahead tip: Prep the tahini sauce and assemble the kebabs up to one day ahead and refrigerate.
