Sweet and Spicy Lamb and Date Couscous Recipe

  • Serves: 1
  • Preparation time: 40 minutes

Method

Delight tiny taste buds with this delicious combination of exciting new flavours. The dates give a little burst of sweetness, while the cinnamon adds warming spice.

1. Heat the oil in a saucepan over a medium heat and cook the lamb mince for 5 minutes, breaking it up with the back of a fork, until browned all over.

2. Stir in the garlic, then add the carrot, dates, passata and cinnamon and bring almost to the boil. Reduce the heat, part-cover with a lid and simmer for 25 minutes until the sauce has reduced and thickened.

3. Meanwhile, place the couscous in a heatproof bowl and pour over enough just-boiled water to cover. Stir, cover with a plate and leave for 5 minutes until tender. Drain if necessary and add to the pan with the lamb. Cook for a further 5 minutes until tender, adding a splash of water if necessary.

4. Using the back of a fork, mash the lamb mixture until almost smooth, adding a little boiled water if necessary. Alternatively, purée in a food processor or using a hand blender.
