Yesterday was such a beautiful day - cold and crisp yet the sun was shining. Pascal and I went for a lovely walk along the river and then it was home to cook lunch. I had planned to cook this meal Thursday night but Pascal was late home from the city so I went on strike!!
I have several versions of this recipe that I have ripped out of magazines - this one required the least ingredients. I will write it out as we cooked it, for two people. However Pascal and I being the complete piglets that we are, we could have easily had more. If you are cooking this for supper or if you are starving I would definitely increase the ingredients by at least half (or Pascal recommends doubling them)!
Ingredients for 2 people:
2 tbsp olive oil
1 medium onion, diced
250g lamb mince
1 tsp cumin seeds
2 wholemeal bread wraps
1/4 x 28g pack of mint, leaves picked
1/4 x 28g pack parsley, leaves picked
Juice of 1 lemon
Preheat the oven to 180C / 160C / gas mark 4 - this is for the bread wraps - if you have a microwave, you can easily do them in that. I used to only ever "cook" in a microwave but now no longer have one, I don't miss it, but at times like this it makes heating easier and quicker.
In a frying pan, heat the olive oil and fry the onion until translucent (about 3-4 minutes).
Make sure the wraps are heated, then divide the houmous between the wraps and spoon over the lamb mince. Sprinkle with the mint and parsley, and drizzle with lemon juice....then voila!
Woweezers!! That was good - we folded them like a fajita to eat and demolished them in seconds. I always think fresh herbs are overrated but this is proof that they add so much flavour to dishes. I could not believe how much we liked this recipe, it is like a fresh, healthy, flavoursome kebab - we have been to Kebab Kid on the New Kings Road a couple of times but I would have this dish over them everyday of the week!!
