spiced lamb

  • 1 pound top round lamb, cubed into ½ inch pieces
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon coriander
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil or grape seed oil

roasted garlic hummus

  • 2 (15 ounce) cans garbanzo beans, 1 can drained, 1 with liquid reserved
  • ¼ cup tahini
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 5 cloves roasted garlic
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • salt to taste

to serve

  • chopped parsley, for serving
  • chopped mint leaves, for serving
  • grilled pita, for serving


  • Place lamb into a mixing bowl and toss together with smoked paprika, cumin, coriander, ground ginger, salt, and pepper. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • While lamb marinates, make hummus: Place garbanzo beans, plus reserved liquid, tahini, oil, garlic, lemon juice, and salt into the well of a blender and puree until silky smooth (adding water 1 to 2 tablespoons at a time, as needed). Adjust seasonings, cover and set aside.
  • Remove lamb from refrigerator and allow mixture to sit at room temperature for 15 minutes.
  • Place a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once skillet is hot, add oil followed by lamb and sauté for 3 to 4 minutes. Lower heat to medium and continue to cook lamb for an additional 4 to 5 minutes or until cooked through, but still slightly pink in the center. Adjust seasonings. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • To assemble: Pour hummus into a large bowl and make a well in the center (can easily do this with the back of a ladle). Fill hummus well with spiced lamb and top with chopped parsley and mint. Serve with grilled pita bread.
