Kafta (Lebanese Beef Kebabs)...

Makes: 22 skewers
   1/4 kg lean beef mince
   2 tbsp finely chopped parsley
   2 tbsp finely chopped sun-dried tomatoes
   1 1/2 tbsp sweet paprika
   1/2 tbsp cayenne pepper
   1/4 tsp ground allspice
   3/4 tsp dried mint
   1/2 tsp ground cumin
   1/2 tsp ground coriander
   1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
   1/2 medium onion, grated, drained in a strainer
   Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  1. In a large bowl combine beef, parsley, tomatoes, paprika, cayenne pepper, allspice, mint, cumin, coriander, cinnamon, onions, salt, and pepper. Mix well together.
    Using a tablespoon as weight guide, take portions of beef mixture and mould them around the end of each of the skewers.
  2. These are traditionally cooked on a hot charcoal fire in a grill, but devoid of that heat up a large skillet or grill; on medium to high heat, add oil and grill, turning, until lightly charred, about 4 minutes (for each)
Served with Quinoa Tabbouleh, Spinach and Cannellini Bean Dip and gluten free wheat free flat bread.
Make yourself a wrap, or just eat it as you like!!
