1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons fresh mint leaves, chopped

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon ground coriander

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

2 cloves garlic, diced

Zest of 1 lemon

1/2 lemon, juiced

1 1/2 pounds lamb tenderloin, fat trimmed and cut into 1-inch cubes

16 cherry tomatoes 

2 medium zucchini, sliced into 1-inch chunks

1 medium white onion, cut into 1-inch chunks

Eight 6-inch whole wheat pitas, quartered

1 cup prepared hummus

1/2 cup prepared cucumber yogurt sauce


Special equipment:
8 wooden or metal skewers (wooden skewers should be soaked in water prior to threading)
  1. In a small bowl whisk the oil, mint, cumin, salt, coriander, pepper, garlic, lemon zest and lemon juice until combined. Place the lamb in the bowl; toss to coat. Cover and place in the refrigerator to marinate for at least 2 hours. Preheat the grill.
