Ingredients

For the Lamb Skewers

  • 500g of Lamb, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • Salt and pepper to season
  • Tsp. of ground coriander
  • Tsp. of ground cumin
  • Tbsp. of olive oil

For the Chip Pea Salad

  • 500g of Lamb, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • Salt and pepper to season
  • Tsp. of ground coriander
  • Tsp. of ground cumin
  • Tbsp. of olive oil
  • 180g of chorizo, chopped
  • 400g of chip peas (usually 1 tin in brine)
  • 1 bunch of spring onions, chopped
  • Handful of cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 red onion, chopped

For the Tzatziki

  • 500g of Lamb, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • Salt and pepper to season
  • Tsp. of ground coriander
  • Tsp. of ground cumin
  • Tbsp. of olive oil
  • 180g of chorizo, chopped
  • 400g of chip peas (usually 1 tin in brine)
  • 1 bunch of spring onions, chopped
  • Handful of cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 200g of plain low fat Greek Yoghurt
  • Handful of fresh mint, chopped
  • 8cm of cucumber, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to season
  • 1 garlic glove, crushed

Method

  • STEP 1
    Mixed all of the Tzatziki ingredients in a bowl and chill for at least an hour. The longer the better as this allows the flavours to fuse!
  • STEP 2
    Mix the diced lamb and the marinade ingredients together in a bowl and chill for at least an hour. As above, the longer the better.
  • STEP 3
    Divide the marinated lamb to create 8 skewers. These need grilling for 15 minutes on a medium heat. Turn the skewers occasionally to make sure they are evenly cooked.
  • STEP 4
    Cook the chorizo in a large frying pan for 10 minutes on a medium heat to allow the oil to escape. Drain around a ½ of this oil before adding the tomatoes, red and spring onion. Cook for a further 5 minutes. Finally, add the chip peas and heat through for a final 5 minutes.
  • STEP 5
    Heat the pitas in the microwave for 2 minutes on full heat while you are serving up.
