  • 300g Quorn Mince
  • ½ onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 tbsp harissa
  • 2 tbsp pomegranate molasses
  • Olive oil
  • Salt

For the Hummus

  • ½ large butternut squash
  • ½ tbsp ras el hanout
  • 1 garlic clove
  • ½ lemon
  • 400g tinned chickpeas
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 45ml olive oil
  • Salt

For the sumac onions

  • ½ onion
  • 20g parsley
  • 1 tsp sumac
  • ½ lemon

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Peel and dice the squash into 2-3cm chunks. Toss with olive oil, the ras el hanout and salt and roast for 20-25 mins until just tender.
  2. Add the squash to a food processor with the garlic, lemon juice, chickpeas, tahini, 45ml of olive oil and a splash of water. Whizz together until super smooth, add a splash more water if you need to. Season to taste.
  3. Slice the onion as thinly as you can and add to a bowl. Finely chop the parsley and add to the bowl with the sumac and the juice of half a lemon. Add a pinch of salt and scrunch together, set aside to macerate.
  4. Add the Quorn Mince to a frying pan. Dice the onion and add to the pan with a shot of oil and a pinch of salt. Cook over a high heat until crispy. Grate in the garlic and add the harissa and molasses. Stir together and cook until crispy, sticky and glazed.
  5. Spread your warm hummus onto a serving plate, top with the crispy Quorn Mince and sumac onions.
