Green Shawarma Burgers

with Lemon-Sesame Yogurt & Cucumber Salad

This fragrant burger was inspired by the heavily seasoned Middle Eastern rotisserie dish, shawarma. A bold spice blend consisting of cumin, cinnamon, turmeric, and coriander, infuses these burger patties with warmth and toasty richness. Cooling lemony yogurt sauce and a crisp, refreshing cucumber salad complement the "meaty" burger patty perfectly.
