It’s spicy, sweet and filling but still pretty damn healthy (If I do say so myself). I’m not publishing recipes as often as I was in winter, the sun comes out and everyone goes crazy, people want to be outside and not inside reading my healthy articles, what gives?
But yeah, I understand why people are frequenting my site less and it’s completely understandable. Even I’m coming here less, I know I shouldn’t say that, but it’s true. I’m spending less time developing recipes and articles and more time focusing on my coursework, health progress and making some money! Time is free but using it wisely is hard work. Anyway, on to the recipe.
15 minute Lamb cous-cous
- 250g of Minced Lamb
- 100g of Cous Cous*
- 1 cup of mixed peppers
- 2 tbsp of Sweet corn
- 1/2 red onion
- 1tbsp of tomato paste
- A few shakes of paprika (because..why not?)
- A few shakes of chilli flakes
- 1/2 tsp of cumin seeds
- 1 tsp of tandori spice
- 3 tbsp of Hazlenuts*
- Brown up your lamb mince, meanwhile you can dice up your onions,peppers,crush your nuts and set your pan on medium-high! * I normally do my peppers first as I like them to cook with the mince and soften quite a lot!
- Once your lamb is browned you can throw everything in and whack the heat up to a roar, add in 50-80ml of water for your cous cous to absorb and switch the heat to low it'll cook within 3-4 minutes.
- Serve immediately and Enjoy. I dare you!
- *You can of course buy store bought spiced cous cous (tomato and chilli is a great version) which means you can skip the tomato paste.
- *Hazlenuts or Pistacios both are absolutely gorgeous!
- If you want to keep it super simple just go for the spice, the lamb and the cous cous!
It’s not vegan and it’s certainly not paleo but it’s still relatively low calorie (medium carbs & fat) but it includes all of your food groups and nutrients, so win win!
This lamb couscous is by far my favourite thing to eat, which is why it’s such a rare treat, we might have it once or twice a year. When we do, it is lapped up in minutes! It’s light and flavour full with protein, carbohydrates, vegetables and nutrient dense spices! I’m really in love with natural cooking at the moment so I’ll be sharing more simple recipes that you can do with only 15 minutes!
Have a brilliant weekend,
