Instructions

Cook pilaf
1

Before starting, wash and dry all produce. Drain roasted red peppers, reserving liquid in a small bowl, then roughly chop. Add rice, half the roasted red peppers, half the garlic puree, broth concentrate, 1 1/4 cup water, 1 tbsp butter and 1/2 tsp salt (dbl all for 4 ppl) to a medium pot. Season with pepper, to taste, then stir to combine. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce heat to low. Cover and cook until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 15-18 min. Remove the pot from heat. Set aside, still covered.

Prep
2

Cut tomato into 1/2 inch pieces. Add beef, Shawarma Spice Blend, panko, half the remaining garlic puree and 1/4 tsp salt to a medium bowl. Season with pepper, then combine. Form mixture into 6 equal-sized, 1/2-inch-thick oval patties (12 for 4 ppl).

Cook koftas
3

Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When the pan is hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then patties. (NOTE: Don't overcrowd the pan; cook koftas in 2 batches, using 1/2 tbsp oil per batch, if needed.) Pan-fry until golden-brown and cooked through, 3-5 min per side.**

Make feta dip
4

Meanwhile, heat a small pot over medium heat. Add cream cheese, feta, remaining roasted red peppers, remaining garlic puree and 2 tbsp reserved pepper liquid (dbl for 4 ppl). Using a fork, mash peppers against the side of the pot until mostly mashed (or use a potato masher). Warm mixture, stirring often, until cream cheese melts and mixture reduces slightly, 3-4 min. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Remove from heat.

Make salad
5

Add vinegar, 1 1/2 tbsp oil and 1/4 tsp sugar (dbl both for 4 ppl) to a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, then whisk to combine. Add spinach and tomatoes, then toss to combine.

Finish and serve
6

Divide pilaf and salad between plates. Top pilaf with koftas. Serve feta dip alongside.
