Nutritional values

The rich color of beets is due to the plant pigment betanin - as an antioxidant, it protects the body's cells from harmful free radicals. White Beans support blood formation thanks to the mineral iron.

Minced lamb has its own flavor that not everyone likes so substitute ground beef or chicken instead. You can also replace the white beans with kidney beans or cooked lentils.

Preparation steps


For the cream, peel beet and grate into a bowl. Peel and finely dice the garlic clove. Put garlic with yogurt and 1 tsp lemon zest in a bowl, mix and season with salt and pepper.


For the skewers, wash oregano and shake dry. Mix beans, lemon juice, 2 tablespoons oregano and 1 tablespoon olive oil in a bowl, season with salt and pepper.


Put breadcrumbs and milk in a bowl. Add minced lamb, spice mixture, salt and pepper. Add feta and knead well with your hands. Form ground meat mixture into 8 rolls. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large non-stick frying pan. Fry rolls, turning, over medium heat for about 10 minutes. Then place on wooden skewers.


Wash lettuce leaves, shake dry and lay out on a platter. Arrange the beans on top, arrange the skewers on top and sprinkle everything with lemon zest and oregano leaves. Pour the beet cream into a bowl, garnish with the remaining oregano leaves and serve with the skewers.
