Number of Servings: 4


    500g lamb mince
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    1/2 bunch chopped parsley
    2 tsp sharp paprika
    2 tsp ground cumin
    Salt and pepper

    1 onion, chopped
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1 tsp sharp paprika
    1 tsp ground cumin
    1 T. harissa paste or berberre seasoning (to taste)
    400g tinned tomatoes

    Chopped parsley, mixed seeds and garlic aioli to serve (optional/garnish)

    1 c. brown rice, uncooked


Combine all the ingredients for the meatballs in a bowl and use your hands to mix well. Roll golf size meatballs. Heat some oil in a saucepan big enough to fit them all. Brown the meatballs and set aside.

Mop up any excess fat in the pan and add the onion and garlic. After a couple of minutes add the spices and stir well before adding the tinned tomatoes. Also fill half the tin of tomatoes with water and add this as well. Stir to combine and put the meatballs back in the saucepan with the sauce. Allow to simmer gently for 25 minutes covered.

While meatballs simmer, cook rice (1 c. rice to 2 c. water).

Top with chopped parsley and serve in the saucepan at the table with some brown rice, a couple of tablespoons of aioli and a few sprinkled seeds.
