My favourite cookbook from the last few years would have to be Jerusalem by Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi. I happily recommend it all the time. It’s just one of those books that I feel has something for everyone. After cooking from it a few times a week for about a month, I ended up with quite a stash of spice mixes that were left over from some of the recipes. I started to work the excess spice mixes into some of my own dishes. This is my favourite.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
2-3 zucchini, diced
1 tablespoon olive oil, plus more for drizzling
2 tablespoons tahini
2 tablespoons sour cream
lime juice, to taste
1/4 teaspoon salt
400g tinned chickpeas, drained
handful mint, chopped
handful coriander leaves, chopped
red onion, thinly sliced, to serve

Spice mix

Quantity Ingredient
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon allspice
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon dried oregano

Method

  1. To make the spice mix, put all the ingredients in a small bowl and mix well.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the zucchini, the olive oil and the spice mix.
  3. Cook the zucchini mixture in a frying pan over a medium heat for 6–7 minutes, or until tender. Transfer to a bowl and let cool.
  4. Whisk together the tahini, sour cream, lime juice and salt in a bowl. If the tahini cream is too thick, add 1 teaspoon water to loosen.
  5. Add the chickpeas and the tahini cream to the cooled zucchini mixture and mix well. Add another squeeze of lime and the mint and coriander leaves and toss. Top with slices of red onion and sprinkle over a pinch of salt. Drizzle with a little more olive oil and serve.
