Greek Turkey Tacos

I am a great fan of Mediterranean flavours   . . .  oregano, feta cheese, olives, lemons, tomatoes, cucumbers . . .  coriander.  Greek salad.  Yum!  Yum!

I also happen to love, LOVE Tacos.   They are so easy to make and eat . . .  and they don't heat up the kitchen.  Easy peasy lemon squeasy.

It just makes sense to combine those two loves into one very delicious and simple . . .  quick and easy supper dish.  Greek Turkey Tacos!


Turkey is so good for you, filled with lots of anti-oxidants and so low in fat, yet filled with flavour.  I use ground turkey because I like it and its healthy!

Filled with flavours, textures, colour, crunch . . .  these are fabulous.

And that cheese  . . .  sooooooo good.  I got it from Larder Fare.  It's British Feta, and extremely tasty, but I will tell you more about that on another day.  Creamy, salty and delicious!

If you don't give these a go, you are going to be missing out on something really special!

The Tomato Puree I used for this dish came from Cirio. A staple ingredient in many dishes, Supercirio Tomato Puree delivers a genuine and delicate taste that is both distinctive and unmistakably authentic. Rich, thick and packed with Cirio?s vivid red tomatoes, its texture is inviting and enriches flavours to stimulate the taste buds and...
