Ingredients

  • 450g courgette
  • 3 garlic clove
  • 23g Moroccan paste
  • 1 brown onion
  • 400g passata
  • 2 tbsp Belazu sundried tomato paste
  • 240g tenderstem broccoli
  • 40g walnuts (Nuts)
  • 400g Moroccan falafel with red pepper & apricot

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 220C / fan 200C / gas mark 7. Finely dice the onion. Finely chop or crush the garlic. Peel the courgettes into ribbons, then slice the ribbons into long, thin strips (or use a julienne peeler or spiralizer if you have one).
  2. Heat a medium frying pan with 2 tsp oil on medium heat. Cook the onion and garlic for 5 mins, then add the passata, sundried tomato paste and Moroccan paste. Simmer for 8-10 mins. Season with sea salt and black pepper. For the final 2 mins, stir in the courgetti to soften.
  3. Meanwhile, place the falafels on a lined baking tray and bake for 5-7 mins, until piping hot. Boil a kettle. Heat a medium saucepan filled with salted boiling water on high heat. Add the broccoli and boil for 3-4 mins, until cooked, then drain. Roughly chop the walnuts.
  4. Serve the courgetti and sauce topped with the falafel. Enjoy the tenderstem on the side. Sprinkle over the walnuts.
