From the Test Kitchen

This recipe highlights vibrant dukkah (an Egyptian-style blend of herbs and spices), which lends warming spice to the thin slices of beef we’re serving over a hearty mix of quinoa, chickpeas, and fresh tomatoes. It’s all brought together with a drizzle of tahini yogurt for irresistibly rich flavor and smooth, creamy texture.

This recipe was created in partnership with the wellness experts at WW. To learn more about WW and SmartPoints® visit ww.com

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients & marinate the radishes:
1 Prepare the ingredients & marinate the radishes:

Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the tomatoes; place in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Drain and rinse the chickpeas. Roughly chop the peppers. Halve the radishes lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Place in a bowl; add the vinegar and season with salt and pepper. Stir to coat. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

Cook, stirring occasionally, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until slightly softened. Add the drained chickpeas; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until browned (be careful, as the chickpeas may pop as they cook). Turn off the heat.
