Ingredients

    250 g ground lamb
    4 cloves garlic, minced
    1 onion medium, chopped finely
    2 can chick peas drained
    2 can tomatoes
    1 cup water
    1 tsp cumin (ground)
    2 tsp thyme
    1 bag baby leaf spinach, chopped

Directions

Makes two equal very large servings or three or four smaller ones. (Nutritional information is based on four servings.)

1 In a saute or other skillet with deep sides and a lid, saute the lamb until cooked through. Set the lamb aside, drain thoroughly and wipe any fat out of the pan.

2 SLOWLY saute the onions in the same pan on medium low or low heat until transparent. (Using low heat should allow you to avoid adding any oil to the pan!) Add the garlic in and saute for another minute.

3 Add the chick peas, tomatoes, water and spices. Stir the lamb in. Bring to a boil and allow to simmer for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally (and adding water if it has cooked down too far).

Serve with toasted pita bread, sauted greens (like spinach or chard) and top with yoghurt if desired.
