Here’s a great recipe for a busy weekday dinner. Ground turkey breast is mixed with Mediterranean spices to create flavorful, protein-packed kebabs. Serve with salad and vegetables and a side of plain Greek yogurt.

Here’s what you need for a serving of 4:
• 1 1/2 pounds turkey breast, de-boned, trimmed of skin and cut into thin strips
• 2 garlic cloves, minced
• 1 teaspoon olive oil
• 2 eggs
• 1/4 cup almond meal (more if needed)
• 1 teaspoon cumin
• 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
• 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
• dash of salt (optional)
• 2 Tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped
• 1 Tablespoon fresh mint, finely chopped

1. In a food processor, blend the turkey strips until ground. Add the remaining ingredients and pulse until well blended.
2. Pre-heat your grill or grill pan.
3. Lightly grease your hands, then press the meat into the wooden skewers until it covers about 3-4 inches in an elongated meatball shape. If the meat is not sticking then add some more almond meal.
4. Grill for about 8 minutes per side.

Nothing beats Mediterranean turkey kebabs on a nice night on the grill.
