Chef’s Tips:

* If you don’t have an outdoor grill, cook these on a grill pan or frying pan.

* Serve these kofte with hummus, baba ganouj and/or your favourite bean salad, French fries, or rice.

* The Sumac Onions are great on shawarmas, burgers, sandwiches, and wraps.

* Grill a few mini peppers and tomatoes for a great accompaniment to the kofte.


  1. In large bowl, combine ground turkey, grated onion, Farm Boy™ Panko Breadcrumbs, Farm Boy™ Sumac Seasoning, Farm Boy™ Organic Paprika, Farm Boy™ Ground Cumin, salt, pepper, egg, olive oil, and parsley. Mix thoroughly, until mixture is uniform and sticky, about 8 minutes. Alternatively, you can use a hand blender to mix.
  2. Portion meat, shaping patties into oblong shapes, about 2” long and 1/2'” thick. Refrigerate while you make the onions and get the grill ready.
  3. Preheat grill over medium-high heat.
  4. While grill is heating, in medium bowl, combine sliced red onions with parsley, Farm Boy™ Sumac Seasoning, lemon juice, olive oil, and salt. Mix well and reserve.
  5. Grease grates and cook patties for 2-3 minutes, then flip them and cook the second side, until internal temperature reaches 160°F. Remove from grill and let them rest for 5 minutes.
  6. Serve patties on warm Farm Boy™ Flame Baked Naan bread, topped with sumac onions, cucumbers and tomatoes. Drizzle with yogurt and serve immediately.
