Even better than a dew-covered sunrise is when my hubby decides to spend the day at home, unexpected and yet also wonderful. After working most of the morning, I decided to make him a satisfying lunch as normally he receives sandwiches as they are easier to transport and eat at a desk in under five minutes.
With a steaming plate of food we sat outside, eager to soak up whatever chilled sun-rays we could to combine the nourishment of food with some good ol' Vitamin D. It was a lunch well-spent.
prep time: 5mins to prep ingredients.
cooking time: 40mins. I cooked the lamb in a normal pan and it only took 20mins rather than 2-3hours of final cooking time.
taste: 4.5/5. Middle eastern flair.
You will have to take my husbands word on this one - the combination of sweet, spicy and tart is a winner.
I chose to use Israeli couscous as I prefer the toothsome pearls with their gelatinous goodness to the regular sand-like grains.
would I make it again: Yes.
recipe: Lamb & date tagine with pomegranate couscous
