  • Peel the garlic and pop it in the food processor with the lemon juice.
  • Drain the chickpeas, rinse and de-shell.
  • Combine the chickpeas ( hold back about 10) with the garlic and lemon juice. Add in the tahini, 1/2 tsp cumin and 4 tbsp of the oil and water. Blitz for 2-3 minutes. Season with sea salt.

  • Transfer to a container, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with cumin and garnish with some chickpeas.


  • Sieve the flour and baking powder into the bowl. Make a well in the centre and stir in the yogurt and the olive oil. Combine until it forms a stiff dough.
  • Place back in the bowl to rest for a few minutes while you make the hummus and the cous cous .
  • Dust your work surface and using a rolling pin roll out 4/6 flatbreads. Approx the size of a golf ball. Roll them out to be about 3mm thick and 10cm in diameter.

Moroccan Lamb

  • Heat the pan up nice and hot. As a little smoke begins to rise, pop in the minced lamb. Sear and allow the brown up quickly. Move the mince around in the pan for about 2 minutes until it starts to brown. Juice and fat will begin to come out, that is fine. Keep cooking
  • Being to add our spice, sprinkle in the cumin, smoked paprika, onion and garlic powder, cinnamon and turmeric. Cook these out for about 1 minutes.
  • Then add in the tomato puree and stock. Turn the heat down and allow to simmer for 25-30mins.
  • You want all the liquid to drain off and for the meat to become almost crumbly. You will have to stick with it for the last 5-10 minutes giving it the occasional stir to prevent it sticking and burning.
  • Season with a little salt if needed. Allow to cool a little and serve on top of the platter of hummus.
  • Drizzle over some toasted pine nuts and the left over garlic and parsley oil from the flatbreads.
  • Enjoy.
