DIRECTIONS

  • Fry the zucchini and garlic in olive oil until slightly browned. Add on the chili flakes, herbs, diced tomatoes, salt and pepper. A splash of vinegar brightens up the flavor. Simmer uncovered for just ten minutes. This is a quick sauce. It’s lit from within.
  • In the winter you could cook this at a low, slow bubble while watching the snow fall.
  • For the Kofta:
  • Mix the beef or lamb with the parsley, cilantro, red onion, cinnamon, coriander, cumin, salt and pepper. Knead for a few minutes, until the meat clears the sides of the bowl and the ingredients are evenly distributed.
  • Roll the meat into 8 finger shaped Kofta. Dipping your clean fingers in a little water will help keep the meat from sticking. Cover and refrigerate until needed (at least 30 minutes for the flavors to mellow).
  • Meanwhile, prepare the chunky, bright zucchini sauce – an entire garden in every bite.
  • Grill the kofta over medium high heat.
  • Fill a large platter with the zucchini sauce and pile on the kofta. Garnish with more parsley and serve with rice and flatbread.
