Lamb and Bean Stew

I’ve adapted this recipe so that I can cook it using some slow cooker

In your slow cooker add one diced onion, 500g of diced lamb, two diced red peppers, 350ml of tomato and basil passata, 300ml of vegetable stock, zest and juice of one lemon and seasoning. Stir and cook on medium for approx 8hrs

When you’re ready to eat, pour the contents of the slow cooker into a saucepan and add a 400g tin of cannellini beans and 200g of orzo pasta, simmer for 10-12 minutes until the pasta is cooked then serve

Lamb Kofta Pitts Pockets

image

You can serve these lamb koftas with some couscous and salad or in pitta bread like I have done

To make the koftas mix 400g of minced lamb in a bowl with two chopped spring onions, a small handful of fresh chopped mint, 2 teaspoons of cumin and 1/2 cinnamon along with some salt and pepper. Mix all the ingredients well with your hands and divide in to four. Press each portion around a skewer to form four koftas then place under a grill and cook for 4-5 minutes before turning over and cooking for another 2-3 minutes until cooked through.

Chop up and serve in some pitta bread along with some salad and yoghurt
