Since my friend brought me back some amazing ras-el-hanout from Morocco I have been looking at different ways to incorporate it into my meals. It has the most gorgeous flavour and so I started doing a bit of digging to see what else I could get it into. I came across a few recipes on the Good Food website so the below recipes is a combination of them all! Best of all it includes one of my favourites at the moment, CHICKPEAS. It also has some gorgeous apricots in which add a nice subtle sweetness to the dish. It’s so filling and really quite cheap to make as you don’t need too much meat. I served mine with some Ainsley Harriot Cous Cous and topped with yoghurt and coriander. Amazing!!
My friend made a gorgeous curry for me one night while I was at uni (feels like a lifetime ago now!!) and when I later asked for the recipe,she couldn’t find it! The only thing she could remember were the spices that were in it. It was so nice that I fiddled about for a while and came up with my own version of the recipe and it was even better!!
Harissa paste is something I always have in the house as its great for adding extra flavour to dishes for virtually no points. This weekend I thought I would try something different so I decided to put together my own version of a Moroccan burger. The burger was really easy to make and considering its simplicity it was delicious! The feta really adds something to the burger and you don’t need to much of it to get a good taste. You could make these burgers and serve them on a bed of salad, or even cous cous, rather than the Warburton’s thins but I really like the thins as they fool you into thinking you are having a real burger. If you can’t get your hands on lean lamb mince, or you want to reduce the points even further, you can substitute the lamb mince for extra lean beef mince or even chicken mince and this reduces the sp per burger to 3.
