  • 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.
