Before starting, wash and dry all produce. Peel, then mince or grate garlic. Heat a medium pot over medium heat.

Add broth concentrate, 1 1/4 cups water and 1/4 tsp salt (dbl both for 4 ppl) and bring to a boil over high. Once boiling, reduce heat to low. Cover and cook until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12-14 min. Remove the pot from heat. Set aside, still covered.
Meanwhile, halve tomatoes. Core, then cut pepper into 1/4-inch pieces. Zest, then juice half the lemon (whole lemon for 4 ppl). Cut any remaining lemon into wedges.
Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then falafel. Using a spoon, break up falafel into bite-sized pieces. Cook, stirring occasionally, until falafel pieces are crispy and golden-brown, 4-5 min.
Meanwhile, add hummus, Harissa Spice Blend, lemon zest, 1 tsp lemon juice, 1 tbsp water,1/2 tsp sugar (dbl all for 4 ppl) and half the mayo (use all for 4 ppl) to a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then stir to combine.
