  • 2 red onions, chopped
  • 2 chillies, chopped
  • 2 t ground cumin
  • 1 T black sesame seeds, plus extra for sprinkling
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 500 g frozen peas, blanched
  • 30 g mint
  • 2 free-range eggs
  • 200 g breadcrumbs
  • 100 g feta
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Pickled turnips, for serving
  • Woolworths pickled red onion, for serving
  • Plain yoghurt, for serving
  • Pita breads, heated, for serving

1. Preheat the oven to 175°C. Soften the onions, chillies, cumin and sesame seeds in the olive oil. Allow to cool.

2. Spoon the onion mixture into a food processor, then add the peas, mint, eggs, breadcrumbs and feta. Blitz to create a coarse paste. Season to taste, then allow the mixture to rest for 20 minutes.

3. Spread evenly into two 23 x 10 cm baking trays or loaf tins lined with baking paper. Bake for 35 minutes, or until set. Serve with the pickled turnips, onions, yoghurt and warm pita breads.

Cook's note: You can’t go wrong with a Middle Eastern falafel-inspired bake made with peas, refreshing mint and chilli for a bit of bite.
