Instructions

Prep
1
  • Thinly slice cucumber.
  • Peel, then cut shallot into 1/4-inch pieces.
  • Roughly chop spinach.
  • Finely chop parsley.
  • Peel, then mince or grate garlic.
Marinate cucumber and toast almonds
2
  • Add vinegar, 1/2 tsp (1 tsp) sugar and 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) oil to a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Stir to mix.
  • Add cucumbers, then toss to coat.
  • Heat a medium non-stick pan (large pan for 4 ppl) over medium-high heat.
  • When hot, add half the almonds to the dry pan (use all for 4 ppl). Toast, stirring often, until golden, 3-4 min. (TIP: Keep your eye on almonds so they don't burn!)
  • Transfer to a plate.
Cook couscous
3
  • Heat a medium pot over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) oil, then half the shallots. Cook, stirring often until shallots are golden-brown and beginning to soften, 1-2 min.
  • Add half the chicken stock powder, 1 tsp (2 tsp) Shawarma Spice Blend and 2/3 cup (1 1/3 cups) water. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat.
  • Once boiling, remove from heat, then add couscous. Stir to combine.
  • Cover and let stand, 5 min.
Cook patties
4
  • Meanwhile, add chicken, half the parsley, half the garlic, remaining chicken stock powder, remaining shallots and remaining Shawarma Spice Blend to a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then combine. (TIP: We suggest using gloves as the mixture will be a little wet!)
  • Form mixture into four 2-inch wide patties (8 patties for 4 ppl).
  • Reheat the same pan (from step 2) over medium.
  • When hot, add 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) oil, then patties. Cover and cook, flipping halfway, until golden-brown and cooked through, 6-8 min.**
Make garlic sauce
5
  • Add mayo, remaining garlic, remaining parsley and 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) marinating liquid to a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then stir to combine.
Finish and serve
6
  • Fluff couscous with a fork. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Add spinach to the bowl with cucumbers, then toss to coat.
  • Divide couscous, salad and patties between bowls.
  • Spoon garlic sauce over top.
  • Sprinkle almonds over top.
