What you'll need:

  • 350g diced lamb
  • 400g can of prunes
  • 400g can of chopped tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp Ras el Hanout or Moroccan spice mix
  • 400 ml boiling water
  • 250g couscous
  • Rind and juice of a lemon
  • 1 tbsp chopped mint



Heat a tbsp of oil in a large pan, and stir fry your lamb for about three minutes. After this, add the spice mix, and fry for one minute more.


Add the tomatoes, bring to a boil and then simmer for fifteen minutes, until the meat has softened. At this point, add the prunes and simmer for a further five minutes.


Meanwhile, make the couscous by putting it into a large, heatproof bowl along with the boiling water, a pinch of salt and a tbsp of oil. Cover the bowl with some cling film, and leave for five minutes.


When ready, fluff the couscous with a fork, add the lemon rind, juice and mint, and serve hot with the lamb.
