150g of ripe tomatoes

3 spring onions

The juice of 1 lemon

A generous pinch of salt and pepper

For the hummus:

1 can of chickpeas (400g), drained and rinsed

1 garlic clove

The juice of 1 lemon

2 tbsp of tahini paste

3 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil

For the rest of the platter:

200g of Veggie Day Shawarma

1 tbsp of oil for frying

Your favourite pickled veggies

A large handful of mixed salad

Flat breads

  1. To make the tabbouleh place the parsley, mint, ripe tomatoes and spring onion into a food processor and blitz until you have a fairly smooth mixture. Transfer it to a bowl and stir in the lemon juice, salt and pepper. Leave it to one side.
  2. To make the hummus simply add all the ingredients to a food processor and blitz until smooth and creamy. Add a few tablespoons of water to loosen up the consistency and blitz again.
  3. Add the oil to a frying pan on a medium heat. Add in the Veggie Day Shawarma pieces and pan fry them for 5-7 minutes until they start to brown.
  4. Assemble your platter by placing the Veggie Day Shawarma pieces in the middle, add the salads, flat-bread and veggies on the side and serve the tabbouleh and hummus in small bowls.
