get prepped

Finely chop the garlic (or use a garlic press). Finely chop the tomato. Roughly chop the baby spinach leaves. Roughly chop the parsley leaves. Zest the lemon (see ingredients list) to get a good pinch, then slice into wedges.

Get prepped

In a large bowl, combine the beef mince, chermoula spice blend, the salt, egg, fine breadcrumbs and 1/3 of the garlic. Crumble in the feta and mix well. Using damp hands, shape heaped spoonfuls of the beef mixture into meatballs and set aside on a plate. You should get 4-5 meatballs per person.

Cook the meatballs

In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Add the meatballs and cook, turning often, until browned and cooked through, 8-10 minutes.

Cook the couscous

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

make tabbouleh

When the couscous is done, add the tomato, baby spinach, parsley and lemon zest to the saucepan with the couscous and stir to combine. In a small bowl, combine the hummus, a good squeeze of lemon juice and water (for the dressing). Season to taste with salt and pepper.

serve up

Divide the couscous tabbouleh between plates and top with the Lebanese beef and feta meatballs. Drizzle with the hummus dressing. Serve with any remaining lemon wedges.
