Method

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C. Mix the mince, garlic, lemon zest, allspice, chopped parsley and some seasoning in a mixing bowl.
  2. Grease a 15 x 20cm roasting tin with ½ tbsp oil. Add the mince mix and press down firmly. Arrange the onion on top and drizzle over ½ tbsp oil. Cover with foil and roast for 20 mins, then roast, uncovered, for 15 mins or until the meat is cooked through and the onions are golden. Cover; set aside to rest for 5 mins.
  3. Pour the roasting juices into a bowl. Transfer the kebab to a chopping board and slice into thin strips.
  4. Divide the tomatoes, cornichons, doner strips and onions between the wraps. Drizzle over some cooking juices and scatter with the remaining parsley. Serve with yogurt, if you like.

Tip: If you're feeling a little more adventurous, why not serve with this Walnut and yogurt dip instead of yogurt?
