  1. Put the lamb, lemon zest, apricots, cumin, ground coriander and egg in a large mixing bowl. Season with salt and pepper and using your hands, mix the ingredients until well combined. Divide into 12 equal sized pieces, then shape into sausage shapes around metal skewers. Pop in the fridge until you want to cook them.

  2. Lay the cucumber flat onto a chopping board and peel lengthways along the cucumber with a peeler to create long, thin ribbons. Set aside.

  3. Gently steam the Tenderstem for 3-4 minutes until it’s softened.

  4. Combine the tahini, yogurt, lemon juice, sumac and garlic in a bowl and season with salt and pepper.

  5. Preheat the grill, a griddle pan or barbecue to medium. Grill the koftas for around 10-12 minutes, turning them frequently while cooking, until they are browned and cooked through (keep an eye on them as they colour quickly).

  6. Heat the flatbreads on both sides, either under the grill, in a griddle pan or on the barbecue.

  7. Break the koftas into bite sized pieces. Top the flatbreads with the cucumber ribbons, Tenderstem and kofta pieces. Drizzle over the tahini sauce, garnish with the chopped coriander and serve.
