Method

Step 1

Preparation: Prepare all the ingredients as indicated above.

Step 2

Lemon: Using the fine side of a box grater, grate the peel of the lemon to create lemon zest, then cut in half and juice.

Step 3

Cucumber: Cut the ends off the cucumber, then slice the four edges around the seeds. Dice these edges (½ cm) and discard the core containing the seeds.

Step 4

Meatballs: Mix these ingredients with the mince: the white onion, cinnamon, allspice, salt and pepper. Roll the mixture into golf-ball-sized meatballs (about 4-5 meatballs per person). Place a pan on a medium-high heat, add a drizzle of olive oil and cook the meatballs until golden – 10-12 minutes. Shake the pan while cooking to make sure that the meatballs are cooked through and golden.

Step 5

Tabbouleh: Mix together the cauliflower, cucumber, red onion, tomato, basil pesto, lemon zest and HALF the mint. Season with salt, pepper and lemon juice to taste.

Step 6

Feta: Add the rest of the mint to the feta cubes and mix with the sumac.

Step7

Serve the tabbouleh with the meatballs and feta.
