Moroccan Lamb and Eggplant with Mint Yoghurt and Couscous

Let's rebrand the weeknight mince dish with palate-tingling excitement. All we need is some pan-fried eggplant, a sprinkling of North African spices (we're thinking paprika, cumin, coriander... ), and a minty yoghurt. Oh, and just 30 minutes of your time, if you will? Same mince, new look.


30 Minutes




Cook Eggplant

Cut eggplant into 2cm pieces. Heat oil in a medium frypan over medium-high heat. Add eggplant and a good sprinkle of salt, and cook, stirring, for 7–8 minutes or until golden brown and softened. Remove from pan and set aside.



Make Couscous

Dissolve stock cube in 185ml (¾ cup) boiling water. Place couscous in a heatproof bowl, cover with stock and set aside, covered with a plate or a clean tea towel, for 5 minutes or until softened and water is absorbed. Fluff couscous with a fork. While couscous is cooking, continue with step 3.



Brown Mince

Return frypan to medium-high heat. Add lamb mince and ¼ teaspoon sea salt and cook, breaking up mince with a wooden spoon, for 5–6 minutes or until caramelised. Stir through Not-So-Hot Harissa and cook for 30 seconds or until fragrant.



Simmer Lamb

Return eggplant to frypan with tomatoes and 60ml (¼ cup) water and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to low and cook for 3–4 minutes or until sauce has reduced slightly. While lamb is cooking, continue with step 5.



Make Mint Yoghurt

Pick mint leaves from theirs stems and finely chop. Peel and crush garlic. Combine garlic, yoghurt, mint and a sprinkle of salt and pepper in a bowl and mix to combine. Set aside.



Plate Up

Toss rocket and red wine vinegar together in a bowl. Add couscous and season with salt and pepper to taste. Divide couscous and spiced lamb and eggplant between bowls and top mint yoghurt to serve.
