Its been really a very exciting and interesting year and i have met and befriended many people on the web who share the same passion for food that i do.
I was a little rushed and wanted to make something quickly and something that had ALOT of flavour. In the supermarket the other day, i bought some lovely ribs of lamb; like pork ribs but from lamb. I have never made anything with them before as in the UK we usually throw these cuts away as they never get used in home cooking. Maybe they get used for making stocks but i saw them and just grabbed them. What a great idea that was. It was the start of a beautiful dish....
I was rushing for a work dinner with my husband and i didn't want to have a massive lunch as we would be having dinner later, so this was PERFECT. Aubergines worked wonders with this as the smoky flavour really went well with the spices i used for the lamb. Turns out, i should have made plenty more as the dinner we went to had the most horrendous food. Oh well....
10-12 lamb ribs
1t crushed chillies
1t smoked paprika
1t ground ginger
1t ground cumin
1t ground dried mint
1T olive oil
juice of half a lemon
salt to taste
2 Aubergines cut into large cubes
1t Dried mint
- Cut the aubergines and place them on a baking tray and drizzle with a little oil and salt
- Add all the spices and rub them onto the lamb adding salt and oil and lemon juice.
- Place them over the aubergines and put in a hot oven at 220 degrees C for about 20 minutes or more if you like the lamb well cooked.
- Remove and serve with a pinch of Cayenne pepper and eat with your hands and some flat pita bread to help soak up all the flavours. Mix yoghurt and dried mint to serve on the side. Dip the lamb in as you please...
- Just Divine!
Something quick easy and full of lovely flavours that will be great served at a buffet or in the middle of the table to share. YUMMY!
Here is to many many more years of food blogging. And thank you for being there supporting me through this wonderful journey. I am enjoying yours too...
