The Monster is not a massive fan of meat unless it’s in mince form so I try to make sure that I come up with a good variety of recipes that use mince. These Minty Lamb and Hummus Pitas are great for the whole family,  full of flavour, tender and just as good for lunch as they are for dinner . The best bit,  they can be made in around 15 minutes. 

I make them using mini wholemeal pita but you can easily use full sized ones. We can get some really great fresh hummus here (what with it being the Middle East and all) so I tend to buy it in rather than make it but there are loads of simple recipes online if you did want to make your own. 

Tip: if you want to freeze these, it’s best to freeze the lamb patties before cooking,  this helps to prevent them from drying out. 

Ingredients

  • 250g lamb mince
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped mint
  • 1/4 of a onion, grated
  • 1 cup hummus
  • Packet of wholemeal pita breads

Method

Heat a frying pan over a medium heat hob (don’t add any oil) in a bowl put the lamb,  garlic powder,  mint and onion and mix thoroughly using your hands.  Take golf ball sized pieces of the mixture and flatten into oval patties. Fry for 5 minutes each side

Slice the pitas down the side to create pockets,  and pop in a good dollop of hummus,  add a lamb Pattie and any extras you want (I love adding tomatoes) and devour. 
Enjoy
