Ingredients

  • 375g Qukes® baby cucumbers
  • 4 Kumato® Tomatoes
  • 1/3 cup burghul
  • 1 cup flat leaf parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 cup mint leaves, chopped
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 brown onion, finely chopped
  • 1 large garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 tbs sweet paprika
  • 600g lamb mince
  • 1 tbs pomegranate molasses
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted
  • 250g haloumi, sliced into 8
  • 1 cup tzatziki
  • 1 cup (50g) pitted kalamata olives
  • Pomegranate molasses & pita crisps, to serve

Method

  1. Place burghul in a bowl and add enough cold water to cover. Set aside for 30 minutes until softened. Drain in a sieve over a bowl, pressing down with the back of a spoon to drain excess moisture. Discard liquid. Dice 3 Qukes® and stir into the burghul with the parsley and mint. Cut the remaining Qukes® in half lengthways and turn cut side down onto the board. Use a wide blade knife to smash the Qukes® in rough pieces.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic, cook stirring often for 5 minutes until soft. Add paprika and cook, stirring for 1 minute. Increase the heat to high, add mince and cook, stirring to break up the mince for 8 minutes until browned. Add the pomegranate molasses and cook for 1 minute. Stir in pine nuts and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Heat the remaining oil in a small frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook the haloumi, in batches for 2-3 minutes each side until golden.
  4. Spoon tzatziki over the base of 4 serving bowls. Add Qukes®, olives, Kumato®, haloumi, salad and mince. Drizzle with pomegranate molasses. Season and serve with pita crisps.
