Ingredients

  • KABOBS
  • 1 (16-ounce) package JENNIE-O® Lean Ground Turkey
  • ½ cup finely chopped yellow onion
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped garlic
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh mint
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • ½ teaspoon ground mustard
  • ½ teaspoon salt, if desired
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • SAUCE
  • ¾ cup plain low-fat yogurt
  • ¼ cup Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon chopped garlic
  • ½ teaspoon lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • fresh cilantro, mint or parsley, for garnish

Directions

  1. For kabobs: Heat oven to 400°F. In large mixing bowl combine turkey, onion, 1 tablespoon garlic, mint, 2 teaspoons cumin, coriander, mustard, salt and black pepper. There will be about 2½ cups of mixture. Form mixture into balls, directly onto the skewers. Meatballs should be approximately 1½-inches across with the skewer running through the middle. Leave about ½-inch between each meatball. Place skewers on nonstick baking sheet. Skewers should be evenly spaced and not touching. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until meatballs are well-done, 165°F as measured by a meat thermometer. Turn meatballs once halfway through cooking.
  2. Prepare sauce while the kabobs are baking. In bowl of food processor or blender combine yogurt, mustard, cilantro, 1 teaspoon garlic, lemon juice and ½ teaspoon ground cumin. Blend until smooth. Sauce should be the consistency of thick cream.
  3. To serve: Place 1 (12-inch) skewer on each plate. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon sauce and garnish with cilantro, mint or parsley.
