Here we are in the mist of fall, baseball season has just ended and football is now going full swing. My husband loves baseball, football, basketball and soccer, really anything that is sports related. Every once in a while, when it’s a special game, we plan a party. I try and keep the food simple and healthy. This post features Chobani Greek yogurt as part of their #MadeWithChobani tailgating series. A series that is promoting everyone to create their favorite tailgating recipe using Chobani’s signature Greek yogurt.
One of the most important qualifications of game food is that you have to be able to pick it up with your hands. Also around our house the main dish must be grilled. Everyone socializes and some wear their team’s colors. Sometimes there’s a bit of cheering going on but all in all it’s just a group of people having some good clean fun.
In this recipe canned chickpeas, fresh herbs and garlic are mixed together and then combined with ground turkey to form mini patties. After being grilled they are topped with a mango and ginger chutney and then topped once again with creamy raita made with Chobani Greek yogurt mixed with arugula, scallion and cucumber with a big squeeze of lime juice. The flavors were sweet and sour, spicy and sweet.
1 cup plain Chobani Greek yogurt
½ cup arugula cut into ribbons
½ medium-sized cucumber, cut lengthwise, seeds removed and then chopped small
1 scallion minced
Juice of ½ lime
8 mini-hamburger buns (bought mine at Trader Joe's)
1 9-ounce jar mango and ginger chutney
To prepare the patties:
Combine chickpeas, scallions, mint leaves and garlic in a food processor, pulse until mostly smooth.
