Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Soak 8 wooden skewers in cold water for 10 mins. In a bowl, combine the mince, garlic, cumin, lemon zest, courgettes, half the mint and parsley, and some seasoning. Using wet hands, divide the mixture into 8 and form into sausage shapes around the skewers. Chill for 20 mins.

  • STEP 2

    Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix together the crème fraîche, yogurt, remaining mint, a squeeze of lemon juice, and some seasoning, then set aside. Toss the cucumber, carrots, tomatoes, remaining parsley and remaining lemon juice together in a bowl.

  • STEP 3

    Heat the grill and line the rack with foil. Toast the tortilla pieces for 3 mins on each side or until crisp. Brush the koftas with the oil and grill for 14-16 mins, turning until browned. Serve the koftas with the salad, minty dip and tortilla crisps.
