Add the toasted coriander and 1 tablespoon sesame seeds and both paprikas; process to a paste. Add the honey and olive oil until a chunky sauce forms.

  • Add the sesame-paprika sauce to the fregola, stir well and season with salt. Transfer to a bowl and top with the feta and arugula. Garnish with sesame seeds and serve.
