    • 1 medium courgette, trimmed and sliced

    Method

    • Pre-heat oven to 200°c/400°F/gas 6. Place the vegetables in a large roasting tin.

    • Mix the garlic, lemon juice and zest and basil and sprinkle a third over the vegetables. Toss to coat. Season generously and roast for 20 minutes until lightly charred and soft.

    • Meanwhile halve the turkey breast slices lengthways, roll up, put in a roasting tin and sprinkle with some lemon marinade. Cook in oven for final 5 minutes of cooking time.

    • Heat a griddle pan until piping hot and cook the pitta breads for 1 minute on each side until lightly charred and ‘lined’. Alternatively, grill or toast pitta breads.

    • Cool slightly then slice open the pitta breads along one side and fill with the roasted vegetables and rolled turkey.

    • Mix the remaining lemon, garlic and basil with the yogurt, and serve drizzled over the pitta breads.
