Bake The Pita Nachos
Bake The Pita Nachos
1

Preheat the oven to 180°C/160° fan-forced. Slice the Lebanese bread into wedges and lay out on the two prepared oven trays (it’s ok if they overlap). Drizzle over 1/2 the olive oil and season generously with salt and pepper. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until golden and crispy. Turn wedges halfway through cooking.

Meanwhile, grate one of the cucumbers and squeeze out excess moisture with your hands (this will ensure your tzatziki is not too watery). Peel and crush the garlic. Combine the cucumber and garlic with the Greek yoghurt and 1/2 the remaining olive oil in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper and mix well. Taste the tzatziki and add additional salt and pepper, if you like.

Finely dice the remaining cucumber, the roma tomato and the red onion. Finely chop the parsley leaves. Grate the fetta cheese. Place 1/2 the diced red onion in a bowl of iced water and leave to soak for 5 minutes. This will reduce the raw bite flavour! TIP: If you’re not a fan of raw onion, don't soak the onion, just cook it all in step 4.

Heat the remaining olive oil in a medium frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the remaining red onion and the beef mince. Cook for 5 minutes, breaking up the mince with a wooden spoon, until the onion is softened and the mince is browned. Add the Greek spice blend and cook for 1-2 minutes, or until fragrant.

Tip: It's time to season, add a pinch of salt and taste your mince. If you can't taste all the flavours add a little more until you can. The amount of salt needed varies for each person so keep tasting your food as you go!
