- sea salt and black pepper, to taste
- Place the couscous in boiling water in a large bowl, cover with plastic wrap and set aside for 5 minutes.
- Once all the liquid has absorbed, fluff with a fork, add the beetroot, onion, garlic, salt, pepper, cumin, coriander, egg and Violife Greek White, and mix to combine. Shape the mixture into 6 patties and set aside in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
- Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large frying pan over low heat or heat up the bbq and cook the patties for 10–12 minutes each side or until firm.
- To serve, spread the hummus on the base of each roll and top each with a patty, valerian leaves and carrot, a slice of Violife and top with the remaining roll half.
