For meatballs:

  • 1 lb. ground turkey meat
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon dried mint

For flatbread:

  • cup self-rising flour
  • 2.5 ounces Greek yogurt
  • Pinch of salt

For yogurt sauce:

  • 2 ounces Greek yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons mayonnaise
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • Squeeze of fresh lemon juice
  • Pinch of salt

To assemble:

  • 1 piece of flatbread
  • 1 tablespoon yogurt sauce
  • Spinach
  • Tomato diced
  • Cucumber {or zucchini} grated


For meatballs:

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare a baking pan by lining with foil and spraying or drizzling with a bit of olive oil.
  • Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and stir to distribute spices. Using an ice cream scoop, create even-sized meatballs and place on oiled baking pan.
  • Bake for about 16-18 minutes or until meat is no longer pink in the middle and cooked the way through.
  • Keep warm until ready to serve.

For Flatbread:

  • Heat a heavy skillet or a grill pan to medium-high heat. In a medium bowl {or in the bowl of a food processor while pulsing} combine all ingredients with a silicone spatula.
  • When the dough looks shaggy, knead it together until a ball forms. Divide dough into 4 equal pieces.
  • On a floured surface, roll out each piece of dough into a circular flatbread. Spray heated pan or skillet with a bit of olive oil or non-stick cooking spray and cook flatbreads until slightly puffed and starting to char in places, about 3-4 minutes on each side.
  • Keep warm until ready to serve.

For Yogurt Sauce:

  • In a small bowl, stir together all ingredients until well combined. Set aside until ready to use.

To Assemble:

  • Spread about a tablespoon of yogurt sauce on each flatbread. Sprinkle with spinach, tomato, and grated cucumber or zucchini. Place 2 meatballs on top of each flatbread and fold over into a "baco". You may need a toothpick to secure unless you plan on diving right in!
