A recipe from the Good Food collection.
Have your say
- 500g minced lamb
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 2–3 garlic cloves, chopped
- 1 tbsp za'atar, plus extra, for sprinkling
- 30g (1 cup) coriander leaves
- olive oil
- 4 large pitta breads, to serve
- 75g mixed salad leaves
- 300g tinned chickpeas
- 2 garlic cloves, crushed
- 1 tbsp tahini paste
- 3 tbsp lemon juice
1. Put the lamb, onion, garlic, za'atar and coriander leaves in a food processor and blend until smooth. Put into a bowl, cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
2. With wet hands, form the meat into eight 12 cm elongated sausage shapes. Heat a barbecue flat plate or grill plate and coat with the oil. Coat the lamb with oil. Cook and turn for 8 minutes, or until evenly browned and cooked through.
3. Meanwhile, to make the hummus, drain the chickpeas, reserving the liquid and put in a food processor or blender. Add the garlic and tahini. With the motor running, add the lemon juice and 3 tablespoons of the reserved chickpea liquid. Process until smooth. Add a little more lemon juice and reserved liquid, if desired, and season with salt and black pepper.
4. Lightly brush one side of the Lebanese breads with oil and sprinkle with the za'atar. Put the unoiled side on the chargrill or hotplate for 2–3 minutes, or until heated through.
5. To serve, place the Lebanese breads on serving plates. Generously spread over the hummus. Top each with two of the lamb sausages and some salad leaves and roll up firmly.
