Ingredients

  • 1/2 large white onion, roughly chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 1/2 small bunch fresh parsley
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 small tomato, diced finely
  • 1/4 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1/4 cup toasted pine nuts
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • Kosher salt
  • 4 pieces pita (whole wheat or regular), cut into quarters
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, for brushing

Method

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Step 2

In a food processor, combine the onions, garlic, and parsley until finely minced. Remove to a large bowl and add in the beef, tomato, garam masala, pine nuts, and lemon juice. Season with salt. Mix with your hands until well combined.

Step 3

Arrange the pita quarters on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Fill each quarter with about 2 tablespoons of the meat mixture, flattening it out so the filling is even. Brush each quarter on both sides with a little olive oil. Sprinkle salt on top.

Step 4

Bake for 20 minutes, turning once halfway through. Pitas should be browned and crispy.
