Crisp Salad with Pine Nuts & Fresh Mint

Cooking time

25 minutes




620 /serving

Magic up a meal of meatballs with Middle Eastern flavourings. Browned ground beef mouthfuls glow in a pomegranate glaze that smooths out the tangy and sweet fruit molasses with a swirl of butter. Serve them atop warmed rounds of pita bread, topped with a creamy-sour swipe of labneh. Finish each one with a lip-smacking lemon and sumac-dressed salad topped with toasted pine nuts.

Toast the pine nuts
Heat a large, dry pan on medium. Toast the pine nuts, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 min., until lightly browned and fragrant (keep an eye on them as they can burn easily). Transfer to a small bowl and reserve the pan.

Cook & glaze the kofta
In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high. Cook the kofta*, partially covered, turning occasionally, 8 to 10 min., until browned and cooked through. Add the pomegranate molasses, 1 tbsp water and 1 tbsp butter. Cook, spooning the sauce over the kofta, 1 to 2 min., until glazed.
