Serves: 4 Preparation time: 10 minutes Cooking time: 10 minutes


300 g lamb mince

1/4 cup herb and garlic tomato paste

1 tsp Moroccan spice mix

4 frenched lamb cutlets

1/3 cup low fat hummus

Carrot and cucumber sticks

1. Combine the lamb mince, tomato paste and spice mix. Shape the mixture into small meatballs – about 2tsp of mixture for each. Brush each meat ball with olive oil. Cook the meatballs in 2 batches until golden and cooked through

2. Brush each cutlet lightly with oil. Preheat the char-grill pan to hot before adding the cutlets. Cook cutlets on one side until the first sign of moisture appears on the top. Turn and cook further until done to your preference. Turn once only. Remove cutlets from heat, loosely cover with foil and rest cutlets for 2 minutes before serving.

3. Serve the meatballs and cutlets on a platter with the hummus, vegetable sticks, tomatoes, wedges of lettuce, wholemeal pita bread and lemon.
