Lamb Kofta Kebabs
In a food processor, mince all ingredients except meat and nuts. By hand, thoroughly combine mixture with remaining ingredients; cover and refrigerate at least 4 hr or overnight. Soak skewers for 30 min in cold water. Divide meat mixture into 8 portions, shape each into a log, and skewer. Set oven broiler to high. Place skewers on a sturdy pan and broil 6″ from broiler, turning every 2 min, approx. 8 min total, to desired doneness. Alternatively, koftas can be cooked without skewers, in a skillet on the stove top or grilled over medium heat.
Combine all, taste for seasoning; add more salt and lemon juice if needed. If too thick, add 1 T water. Chill until ready to serve.
Toss vegetables with olive oil, lemon juice and a pinch of salt and pepper. Divide among 4 plates, topping each with 2 kebabs. Serve with Tahini and pitas.
