Mediterranean turkey pita
for the meatballs:
2 lbs of ground turkey
1 egg
1 medium onions, chopped finely
1/2 c shredded carrots
1/2 c shredded zucchini, juice squeezed out
1 tbsp corn starch
1/2 c bread crumbs or panko
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp dried parsley
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp dried dill
1/2 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp celery salt
3 tbsp soy sauce
salt and pepper
oil for pan frying

For the pita sandwich:
whole wheat pita
arugula
onions, sliced into rings
cucumber, sliced
tatziki sauce (I got from Trader Joe's)
turkey patties
extra virgin olive oil, seasoned with salt and pepper.

For turkey patties, combine all ingredients together and let the 
flavors settle in for at least 2 hours. Form them into patties as bigas your palm. It will make about 13-16 patties. Preheat frying pan onmedium high. Add oil, just enough to cover the bottom of the pan. frythe patties covered, turning them once. About 6-10 mins. To assemble the pita sandwich, reheat the pita on a hot pan over high heat for about a minute per side. Cut the pita in half. Open the pocket. Start by putting the arugula, onion rings, and cucumber. I cut my patties inquarter, and put them in the pockets on top of the vegetables. Top itwith tatziki sauce. And drizzle with olive oil.
