Toast the pita breads under a hot grill or on a griddle pan until warmed. Cover in foil to keep them warm.

Mix the spices and lemon juice into the ostrich strips. Spray non-stick cooking spray into a frying pan and cook the meat over high heat for about 2 minutes, or until just cooked. Remove and set aside.

Add the peppers and spring onions and sauté for a few minutes. Add the meat and heat through.
Dressing: Mix the mint and lemon juice into the yoghurt.

Cut the pita breads in half and fill with the meat and peppers, lettuce or rocket, and a spoonful of the dressing.
