  • 2 Garlic Clove
  • 1 Small Bunch of Flatleaf Parsley
  • 0.5 Cauliflower
  • 300 Grams of Beef Mince
  • 2 Tablespoons of Beef Koftas Spice Mix
  • 4 Wooden Skewers 6"
  • 100 Grams of Greek Yoghurt
  • 200 Grams of Green Beans

Prepare Ingredients:

Wash the fresh produce. Mince the garlic, smashing until it resembles a paste. Pick parsley leaves; discarding stems, then roughly chop the leaves. Trim and discard the stems of the green beans; cut the beans into 3-4 cm pieces. Remove and discard the core of the cauliflower, then finely chop using a food processor or a knife.

Make Beef Skewers:

In a medium bowl, combine the beef mince, spice mix reserving ½ Tablespoon for the couscous, half the garlic paste, half the parsley and two big pinches of salt and pepper. Mix until well combined. Shape into 4 long patties. Insert wooden skewer into the centre of each end. Lightly drizzle with olive oil.

Cook Beef Skewers:

In a large high sided non-stick pan or pot, heat olive oil on medium until hot. Working in batches if necessary, add the skewers and cook about 3 minutes per side, or until they reach your desired degree of doneness. Transfer to a plate and let rest at least 5 minutes. Bring a medium pot of water to a boil over high heat.

Make Yoghurt Sauce & Cook Green Beans:

While the beef cooks, in a small bowl, stir together yoghurt and the remaining garlic or to taste. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed. Set aside. Add beans and a generous pinch of salt to the pot of boiling water. Blanch until bright green, about 1 to 2 minutes or to your liking, then remove and set aside.

Cook Cauliflower 'Couscous':

In the same pan used to cook the beef, add cauliflower, remaining spice mix and up to ½ cup water. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the cauliflower has softened and the water is absorbed and is cooked to your liking. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in remaining parsley.
