Method

Step 1

Preparation: Preheat the oven to 200°C. Prepare all ingredients as indicated above.

Step 2

Sunflower seeds: Place a pan on high heat and dry toast for 2-3 minutes until browned. Toss often to make sure they don’t burn.

Step 3

Roast veggies: Place the beetroot, butternut and carrots on a tin foil lined baking tray with a drizzle of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Mix and arrange in a single layer (make sure not to overcrowd the tray, rather use two trays). Roast for 20-25 minutes until golden and cooked.

Step 4

Chicken skewers: Thread the chicken cubes onto the skewers, season with salt and pepper and sprinkle with the Baharat Spice Mix. Place a pan on medium-high heat with a knob of butter. When the butter has melted, add the chicken skewers and cook for 8-10 minutes, turning every 2 minutes to make sure they’re cooked through and browned evenly.

Step 5

Tahini: Place the tahini in a bowl and slowly mix in a little water, enough to turn the mixture into a pouring consistency. The tahini will go thicker when you start adding the water but keep adding a little at a time. Eventually it will become a runny consistency. Season with salt and pepper and lemon juice to taste.

Step 6

Serve the chicken skewers with the roast veggies. Sprinkle over the chopped parsley and toasted sunflower seeds and drizzle over the tahini.
