Peel the cucumber into ribbons if you want the yoghurt sauce to be thicker.



  • 1 broccoli, cut into small florets and stalk diced 1cm
  • 400g kumara, diced 2cm
  • 1 red onion, diced 2cm
  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • 20g super seed mix
  • 40g chermoula dressing
  • 2 tomatoes, diced 1-2cm


  • 1/2 teaspoon oil
  • 550g lean beef pave steaks (at room temperature)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1½ tablespoons chermoula spice


  • ½ Lebanese cucumber
  • 40g chermoula dressing
  • 150g yoghurt


  • 2-3 Tbsp feta cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 220ºC. Line two oven trays with baking paper. Prepare vegetables. Preheat BBQ grill or hot plate to medium-high (if using).
  2. Toss broccoli, kumara and onion in a large bowl with oil. Spread out evenly on prepared oven trays. Season and bake for about 18 minutes. Reserve bowl.
  3. Remove from oven, sprinkle over super seed mix and continue to bake for 3-4 minutes, until seeds are lightly golden and vegetables are tender.
  4. While vegetables cook, prepare beef. Heat oil in a large fry-pan on medium-high heat. Pat beef dry, rub with garlic and chermoula spice and season.
  5. Cook beef for 2-3 minutes each side for medium (depending on thickness), or until cooked to your liking. Alternatively, cook on BBQ. Set aside to rest, covered, for 3-4 minutes.
  6. While beef rests, grate cucumber and squeeze out excess liquid. Add to a small bowl and mix with second measure of chermoula dressing and yoghurt. Season and set aside.
  7. Once vegetables are cooked, add back to reserved bowl. Toss through first measure of chermoula dressing and tomatoes. Season to taste.
  8. Once beef has rested, slice against the grain reserving any resting juices.
  9. To serve, share super seed vegetables between plates. Top with chermoula beef and spoon over resting juices (if desired). Dollop over cucumber yoghurt and crumble over feta cheese.
