Finely chop the garlic (or use a garlic press). Roughly chop the cucumber and tomato. Roughly chop the parsley (reserve a few leaves for garnish). Zest the lemon (see ingredients list) to get a good pinch.

In a large bowl, combine the beef mince, chermoula spice blend, egg, fine breadcrumbs (see ingredients list), the salt and 1/3 of the garlic. Crumble in the feta and mix well. Using damp hands, take a heaped spoonful of mixture and shape into a small meatball. Transfer to a plate and repeat with the remaining mixture. You should get 5-6 meatballs per person.

While the meatballs are cooking, add the butter to a medium saucepan and melt over a medium heat. Add the remaining garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Add the water (for the couscous) and crumbled vegetable stock and bring to the boil. Add the lemon zest, couscous and a drizzle of olive oil. Stir to combine, cover with a lid and remove from the heat. Keep covered until all the water is absorbed, 5 minutes. Fluff up with a fork and set aside uncovered.
