This Moroccan Lamb Mince dish is a beautiful way to enjoy the spices and flavours of Morocco.

Serves: 4



  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 red onion, finely diced
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 500g lamb mince
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp sumac
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • ¼ cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 cup Greek yoghurt
  • 1 pomegranate, seeds only
  1. Heat olive oil in large frypan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook for 5 mins until soft and caramelised.
  2. Add lamb mince, cinnamon, cumin, coriander, sumac and sea salt. Cook for a further 10 mins, making sure you’re stirring continuously so lamb mince is broken up. Turn heat to high and cook for a further 5 mins. This will help create crispy edges to lamb mince. Remove from heat, add chopped flat-leaf parsley and mix through.
  3. Add Greek yoghurt to base of a large serving platter and spread across bottom of platter. Top with lamb mince and sprinkle over pomegranate seeds.
  4. Top with more fresh flat-leaf parsley and serve immediately.
