2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep and roast the cauliflower

Heat the oven to 425°F. 

  • Cut the cauliflower into 1-inch florets, discarding any leaves or thick stalks. 

On a sheet pan [2 sheet pans], toss the cauliflower with 2 to 3 teaspoons oil; season with salt and pepper. Spread in an even layer and roast, stirring halfway through, until the cauliflower is tender and starting to brown, 14 to 17 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the salad and your protein. 


Make the tomato-cucumber salad

  • Cut the tomatoes in half.
  • Peel the cucumber, if desired; cut the cucumber into ½-inch pieces.

In a medium bowl, toss together the tomatoes, cucumber, red wine vinegar, and 1 to 2 teaspoons oil; season generously with salt and pepper. Let stand, stirring occasionally, while you prepare the rest of the meal. 


Prep your protein

  • Ground meat (including plant-based): Cut a small corner from the ground meat packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel. 
  • Tofu: Pat the tofu dry with paper towels; cut or crumble into ½-inch pieces. 


Cook your protein

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add your protein, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring and breaking up the ground meat if using, until the protein is lightly browned but not yet cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. 

Add the kefta spice blend and cook, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan, until your protein is browned and cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from the heat, season to taste with salt and pepper, and cover to keep warm. 


Finish the cauliflower hummus

Transfer the roasted cauliflower to a large bowl. Add the harissa tahini, 2 to 4 tablespoons hot water, and 1 to 2 teaspoons oil. Using a fork, masher, or the bottom of a cup or bowl, mash the cauliflower until a smooth paste forms. Alternatively, transfer the ingredients to a food processor and pulse until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper. 


Transfer the cauliflower hummus to individual bowls. Top with your protein and tomato-cucumber salad and serve.
