We can call this dish, Hummus with Spiced Lamb, Hummus b’lahmeh or Loaded Hummus. As far as hummus is concerned you can’t go wrong, but you can go even more right, which is what we’ve done here. Whilst it’s more common in Australia for us to treat hummus as a dip to serve with vegetable crackers, and there isn’t anything wrong with that, I stand firm, in other parts of the world it’s a whole meal. This Hummus with Spiced Lamb is just that, its even more delicious, filling, moreish, fun, and interactive than regular hummus, who would have even thought it was possible. You can load this with whatever you want, but the spiced, caramelised, gnarly bits of gorgeous mince lamb in this one complimented by the sharp pomegranate and fresh mint is definitely a dang fine place to start! Give this a go!
My Notes on Lamb Mince
- Mince lamb is incredibly versatile in terms of cooking methods as well as cuisine style, think of koftas, bolognese, pie filling, hummus topping, rissoles, chili, sausage rolls – the sky is the limit!
- Mince lamb is budget-friendly, and especially for families, you can make a little go quite far. You can add vegetables and flavouring to bulk it out adding to its nutrition and quantity.
- For busy families, finished mince dishes freeze quite well, cook in bulk so you can defrost when you’re time-poor!
