    Lamb skewers with mixed grains and baba ganoush

    • Preparation time: 20 minutes, plus marinating and steaming
    • Total time: 40 minutes, plus marinating and steaming

    Serves: 2

    Ingredients

     

    1 aubergine

    2 lamb steaks (about 200g), trimmed of excess fat and sinew

    2 garlic cloves, crushed

    1 lemon, zest and juice

    2 tsp olive oil

    2 tsp tahini

    250g pack LOVE life quinoa, chickpeas, bulgar wheat and rice

    1⁄2 x 25g pack flat leaf parsley, stalks finely chopped, leaves torn

    1⁄2 x 20g pack dill, stalks and leaves roughly chopped

    Method

    1. Preheat the oven to 200 ̊C, gas mark 6. Pierce the aubergine all over with a fork and bake for 35-40 minutes, until blackened. Put in a bowl, cover with cling film and leave for 10 minutes.

    2. Meanwhile, dice each lamb steak into 5 equal pieces and mix in a bowl with 1 crushed garlic clove, 1⁄2 the lemon juice and 1 tsp oil. Leave to marinate for at least 20 minutes. Thread onto 2 skewers (pre-soaked in water if wooden). Cook on a hot griddle (or barbecue) for 8-10 minutes, turning often, until cooked through.

    3. Halve the aubergine and scoop the flesh into a food processor (discard the skin). Add the tahini and remaining garlic and lemon juice. Blend until smooth; season. Cook the grains according to pack instructions; toss with the lemon zest, herbs and remaining 1 tsp oil. Serve the lamb with the grains and baba ganoush; scatter with the pomegranate seeds.
