120g crustless sourdough bread, ripped into small pieces
4 tbsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
300g leftover turkey meat, shredded
1 tsp Baharat
300g Greek yogurt
The juice of ½ a lemon
60g pomegranate seeds
25g toasted pine nuts
A small handful of finely chopped parsley leaves
Sea salt and black pepper
1. Preheat the oven to 180. Chuck the bread into a roasting dish and drizzle over 2 tbsp of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and roast for 12-15 minutes until golden.
2. Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil in a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Add the garlic and cook for 10 seconds until fragrant. Chuck the turkey into the pan and stir-fry for 3-4 minutes until warmed through. Add the Baharat and mix well.
3. Tip the yogurt, tahini, lemon and a good pinch of salt into a mixing bowl and mix well. It will do quite stiff so pour in 30-50ml of water, depending on the thickness of the yogurt and mix into a glossy smooth sauce. If you like this warm, cover with cling film and bung it into a microwave for a minute and then mix well.
4. Spoon the yogurt onto a serving dish and arrange the turkey over the top. Scatter over the bread and then garnish with the pomegranate seeds, pine nuts and parsley leaves. Serve immediately with a green salad or leftover roasted vegetables.

1. Cook the pasta in a large pan of boiling salted water as directed on the packet until al dente. Drain, reserving some of the pasta water and set to one side.
2. Meanwhile, pre-heat the grill to high. Remove the skin from the chorizo and rip into small pieces.
3. Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and add the chorizo. Mix well and cook for 3-4 minutes until a little crispy. Reduce the heat to low and add the double cream, harissa, 100g Monterrey Jack and good pinch of salt. Pour in 120ml of the pasta water and mix into a smooth sauce.
4. Tip the pasta and turkey into the sauce and mix well. If it looks too dry, add a little more of the pasta water. Transfer to an oven proof dish and scatter over the remaining cheese. Grill for 4-5 minutes until golden. Serve immediately.
