Moroccan Meatball Stuffed Pitas

Pitas stuffed with meatballs, hummus, and yogurt on plate with parsley

Hello, Beautiful!  Yep, these are some beautiful – and irresistible I might add – Moroccan Meatball Stuffed Pitas!  They are filled with homemade hummus, moist turkey meatballs made with warm Moroccan spices like ginger, turmeric, and coriander, and then topped with creamy, fresh and bright lemon yogurt sauce.  Moroccan Meatball Stuffed Pitas are incredibly easy to make, fun to stuff, and so delicious to eat.

The truth is, I haven’t made many Moroccan dishes, but one of the easiest ways to change up a dinner rut is to add new and different flavors.  Making meatballs from ground turkey instead of beef and adding new and different spices does just that!

So, what led me to Morocco you ask?  Well, I’ve been a little bit obsessed with ginger.  But when cooking with it, always find myself making some type of ginger stir fry.   So I really wanted to find a new way to use it, a new cuisine other than Asian.  Moroccan cuisine is known for its warm spices, one of which is ginger!  And the rest, as they say, is history…or in this case, MEATBALLS!

Oh, and in case I have intrigued you with ginger stir fry, check out these amazing recipes!

 

While there are a few delicious components to these beautiful stuffed pitas, it all starts with the turkey meatballs.  The spices that give them that warm Moroccan flare are garlic, ginger, turmeric, coriander, and cayenne.

To ensure that all of these spices are evenly distributed into every single meatball, I like to first mix them with the egg to create the wet mixture.

Then, I mix them into the ground turkey with the parsley and bread crumbs.

Next, roll into small 1 inch meatballs.  You should get about 26 meatballs, so with 3-4 meatballs per pita, you get 7-8 half pitas stuffed!  Perfect for a family of 4-5 people.

First, cook them under the broiler for 5-6 minutes until they start to brown on top.

 

Then move them down to center rack and turn the oven to 375 to bake for 15 minutes.  They should be golden brown from the turmeric and other spices when done.

Next comes the homemade Hummus!  This hummus is so simple and just lets the chickpeas do their job – taste amazing!  For this recipe, put the clove of garlic, the olive oil, and water into a food processor until smooth.  Then add the drained chickpeas and blend until smooth.  That’s it!

The yogurt sauce is equally as easy to make!  Just lemon zest, a little lemon juice, parsley, salt, and pepper.

Next, warm up the pitas in the oven and start filling.  First fill with the hummus, add 3-4 meatballs, top with the lemon yogurt sauce, garnish with parsley and ENJOY!
