Two years ago, I published this
(and I'm running it again because I can't think of much to say and also because I am once again reminded that my kids are hilarious. And weird.
Plus it's a yummy recipe.)
"Tonight, I cooked dinner while Fabio dealt with a large pile of paperwork. I made Middle Eastern style lamb. (recipe below)
"Mum!" said the Princess. "This is so good. You should defintly open a restaurant. On the days when Dr Who is not on. You should open the restaurant tomorrow, Mum."
Handsome Son chipped in. "Poor old Dad will have to get some cement and some bricks. And some tiles. And build it tomorrow. He's gonna be worn out."
"Well," said The Princess. "The restaurant is going to be a big hit."
So here is the recipe:
750 g lean lamb strips
2 tspns olive oil
1 clove garlic
1 onion, sliced
1 x 425g can crushed or chopped tomatoes
2 tspns honey
2 tspns cinnamon
gently fry the onion and garlic together till soft.
fry the lamb in batches till browned all over
add tomatoes, honey and cinnamon, and a little water
simmer for about 15 mns
serve with rice
1 1/2 cups quick brown rice
250g frozen spinach
2 tspns lemon juice
small handful chopped coriander
1 tablespn sesame seeds
cook rice, drain and return to pot
add spinach, juice and coriander, cook for 5 mins
serve with lamb and sprinkle sesame seeds over top
If you make it, and like it -- let me know (: "
