• Boil the kettle. Roughly chop cucumber and roasted almonds. Thinly slice radish and herbs. • Place plant-based kumara patty (see ingredients) on a flat surface, sprinkle over Middle Eastern seasoning (see ingredients) on both sides.


• In a large heatproof bowl, add couscous and vegetable stock powder. • Add the boiling water (see ingredients) and stir to combine. • Immediately cover with a plate and leave for 5 minutes. Fluff up with a fork and set aside.


• Heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. • Cook plant-based kumara patties (see ingredients) until golden, 4-5 minutes each side. • Remove pan from heat, add apricot sauce (see ingredients), a splash of water and a pinch of salt and pepper. Gently turn patties to coat.

TIP: The spice blend will char slightly in the pan, this adds to the flavour!


• To the bowl with couscous, add salad leaves, cucumber, radish, herbs, Turkish sumac seasoning, a drizzle of white wine vinegar and olive oil. Season to taste. • Slice Middle Eastern-glazed kumara patties. • Divide herby sumac couscous salad between plates. Top with kumara patties. • Sprinkle over roasted almonds. Drizzle over garlic dip. Enjoy!
