Instructions

Prep and marinate tomatoes
1

Before starting, preheat the oven to 425°F. Wash and dry all produce. Cut zucchinis in half lengthwise, then into 1/2-inch-thick half-moons. Cut tomatoes into 1/2-inch pieces. Zest, then juice half the lemon. Cut remaining lemon into wedges. Roughly chop or tear parsley. Add tomatoes, lemon juice, half the parsley, 1/2 tsp sugar and 2 tbsp oil (dbl both for 4 ppl) to a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to combine.

Form meatballs
2

Combine beef, panko, Shawarma Spice Blend and 1 tbsp water (dbl for 4 ppl) in a medium bowl. Add feta. Season with pepper, then combine again. (TIP: If you prefer a firmer meatball, add an egg to the mixture!) Form mixture into 8 equal-sized meatballs (16 for 4 ppl). Arrange meatballs on a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake in the middle of the oven until cooked through, 10-12 min.**

Cook couscous
3

Meanwhile, add 2/3 cup water (dbl for 4 ppl) and half the garlic salt to a medium pot. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, remove the pot from heat, then add couscous. Stir to combine, then cover and let stand until couscous is tender and liquid is absorbed, 5 min.

Cook zucchini
4

Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then zucchini. Season with remaining garlic salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender-crisp, 4-5 min. Transfer zucchini to the large bowl with tomatoes.

Make hummus drizzle
5

Meanwhile, add hummus, lemon zest and 1 1/2 tbsp water (dbl for 4 ppl) to a small bowl. Season with pepper, then stir to combine.

Finish and serve
6

Fluff couscous with a fork. Add couscous to the bowl with tomatoes and zucchini, then stir to combine. Divide couscous tabbouleh between bowls. Top with meatballs. Drizzle hummus over meatballs. Sprinkle with remaining parsley and squeeze a lemon wedge over top, if desired.
