Before starting, preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry all produce. Core, then cut pepper into ½-inch slices. Cut zucchini into 1/2-inch rounds. Roughly chop parsley. Peel, then mince garlic. Whisk together 1 1/2 tbsp oil, 1/4 tsp garlic (dbl both for 4 ppl), half the vinegar (use all for 4 ppl) and half the parsley in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Set aside.


Add 2/3 cup water and 1 tbsp butter (dbl both for 4 ppl) 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. Cover and let stand for 5 min.


Meanwhile, add peppers, zucchini, 1 tbsp oil and 1 tsp Turkish Spice Blend (dbl both for 4 ppl) to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to combine. Roast in the middle of the oven, tossing veggies halfway through, until golden-brown, 12-15 min.


Meanwhile, combine lamb, panko, remaining garlic, remaining Turkish Spice Blend, 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper (dbl both for 4 ppl) in a medium bowl. Divide mixture into 6 equal portions (12 portions for 4 ppl). Roll each portion into a ball, then flatten into 1/4-inch-thick patties.


Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add 1 tsp oil, then patties. (NOTE: Cook patties in 2 batches for 4 ppl, using 1 tsp oil for each batch.) Pan-fry until golden-brown, 3-5 min per side.**


Add pepitas and remaining parsley to couscous. Season with salt, then fluff couscous with a fork. Divide couscous, roasted veggies and lamb patties between plates. Spoon parsley-garlic vinaigrette over top.
