1. Drain chickpeas (see product spotlight). Blend with 2 tbsp olive oil, 2 tbsp yoghurt and 1 tsp cumin using a stick mixer until desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper to taste, set aside in the fridge for serving.

2. Combine mince with 1 tbsp spice mix (10g) and 1/2 packet of finely chopped mint leaves. Form into 10 koftas (long meatballs) using 1/4 cup measurement.

3. Quarter beetroots, dice tomatoes and slice orange. Toss in a bowl with mixed leaves, remaining torn mint leaves and 1 tbsp olive oil.

4. Crush or chop nuts. Toast in a dry pan until lightly golden and sprinkle on top of salad.
Add 1 tbsp oil to pan, add koftas and cook all-over for 8-10 minutes, or until browned and cooked through.

5. Warm lavash breads in a dry pan or in the oven, if desired. Wrap in a kitchen towel to keep warm.

6. Serve koftas with lavash bread, beetroot salad and hummus.

Toss salad with vinegar if you desire. Add some finely chopped mint leaves to the hummus for a minty flavour!
