  1. 1/4 cup fat-free plain Greek yogurt
  2. 1 tablespoon hot paprika
  3. 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  4. 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  5. 2 garlic cloves, minced
  6. 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing

  8. 2 pounds trimmed lean leg of lamb, cut into 1-inch cubes
  9. 1 pound small zucchini, halved lengthwise and cut crosswise into 1-inch pieces
  10. Warmed pita bread, for serving
  1. In a large bowl, whisk the yogurt with the paprika, cumin, allspice, garlic and the 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Season with 1 1/2 teaspoons of kosher salt and 1/2 teaspoon of pepper.
