"Excellent base recipe! I used 20oz 99% lean turkey breast (could also use extra lean ground sirloin), 5 cups diced eggplant, 2 1/2 cups diced zucchini, and 2 cups chopped bell peppers to make it more nutritious. Added 1 can fire roasted tomatoes to compensate for the extra veggies. Seasoned with some beef base, Mediterranean spice blend, 1tbs lemon juice, and a pinch of crushed red pepper. Served over whole wheat orzo. Pita wedges were perfect! So good! "

Preparation

Heat oven to 400 degrees F.

Cut pita rounds into 6 wedges each with knife or kitchen scissors. Scatter wedges onto a baking sheet and spray with olive oil cooking spray. Season with salt and bake 10 minutes until golden. Remove from the oven and cool.

Heat a large high sided skillet with extra-virgin olive oil, 2 turns of the pan, over medium- high heat until oil ripples. Add beef or lamb, brown and crumble meat, about 5 minutes. Season the meat with salt, pepper, oregano, cinnamon. Add the onions, garlic and eggplant and cook 6 to 7 minutes then stir in spinach and tomato sauce. Simmer a few minutes and adjust seasonings.

Chop olives with lemon zest and parsley - Greek Gremolata!

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook orzo according to box instructions.

Drain orzo and combine with meat goulash. Top bowls of goulash with feta cheese, pita chips and olive gremolata.

I thought the meat mixture needed a little more flavor since I used ground turkey. All the flavors seemed to balance nicely after everything was assembled.
