Lamb and Chickpea Tagine (350 cals/5.6g sat fat/23g Protein)

Submitted by: CEECEES1

Introduction

I was snowed in so I made this using some store cupboard ingredients to make a nice hearty meal. I only had high fat lamb so would recommend using a lower fat cut!

    2 Tsp Olive Oil

Tips

I'm on the South beach diet, but If I wasn't I'd add some fruit (raisins, prunes or apricots, etc.)


Directions

1. Heat oil in a large shallow saucepan, add the lamb and brown the meat.
2. Add the chopped onion, garlic and all of the spices whilst coating the lamb with them.
3. Add in chopped tomatoes and a pinch of salt.
4. Cover and bring to the boil.
5. Reduce the heat and allow to simmer, covered, for 1 1/2 hours
6. Add in the chickpeas and sweeter. Simmer for a further 20 minutes without a cover, until the liquid is reduced or the lamb is at desired tenderness.
