Lamb Tagine

Ingredients

2 tbsp. olive oil

500g lean diced lamb

1 large onion, roughly chopped

2 large carrots, quartered lengthways and cut into chunks

2 courgettes, roughly chopped

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

2 tbsp. ras-el-hanout spice mix

400g can of chopped tomatoes

400g can of chickpeas, rinsed and drained

200g dried apricots

600ml chicken stock

handful of flaked almonds (optional)

Method

Pre heat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4.

Heat the oil in a frying pan and brown the lamb.

Once brown, scoop the lamb out onto a plate, then add the onion, carrots and courgette to the frying pan and cook until golden.

Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute.

Stir in the spices and tomatoes, and season.

Add the lamb to the frying pan with the chickpeas and apricots, stir well, and then transfer to a tagine.

Make up the stock according to the packet instructions and pour over the ingredients in the tagine.

 Place the lid on the tagine and cook for 1 hour.

If the lamb is still a little tough, give it another 20 minutes more, allowing it to tenderise.

When ready, leave it to rest so it’s not piping hot, then serve with flaked almonds (optional).
