Kafta Sandwich

Kafta Sandwich
Kafta Sandwich

A few weeks ago, I started volunteering with a local organization called "Oma's Recept" (grandma's recipes). It is a 10-week project, dedicated to teaching children and grandparents to cook different dishes from all over the world.

The first week I taught these awesome children and their grandma's (and elderly) to make a dish my grandmother taught me to do, Kafta Lebanese style. We use to eat this recipe with vermicelli rice and a salad, since it is an hour class, I substituted the rice for bread. It was all a success.

This recipe makes 6 sandwiches.


500 gr. minced meat

2 eggs (whisked)

2 yellow onions (pureed)

2 garlic cloves (mashed)

1 tablespoon of raz al hanout

1/2 tablespoon of salt

1 teaspoon of black ground pepper

6 tomatoes (chopped)

2 cucumbers (chopped)

2 cups of yogurt

1 teaspoon of dry mint

Arabic or pita bread


1. In a bowl add the meat with the eggs, onion, garlic and spices, mix well with your hands and make golf size balls and then flatten. Cook in a frying, there is no necessity for oil or fat.

2. In a bowl add the yogurt, season with salt and pepper and dry mint.

3. Warm up the bread and it is ready to become a sandwich.


1. I've also made tzatziki: shred the cucumber, take the moister out and mix it with the yogurt, season with salt and pepper.

2. The kafta, can be cooked with the tomatoes.

3. A portion of tahini sauce (tarator) as a sauce is the best combination so far.
