Hummus with Crispy Mince

(0 rating - rate this recipe)
Hummus is now readily available in many flavour combinations. However, making it yourself is easier than you think, particularly when using tinned chickpeas. If you can get your hands on it, replace the balsamic syrup glaze with even more delicious pomegranate molasses.

Ingredients

Mince

  • 250 g Quality Mark lamb mince
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 red onion, finely diced
  • 1 teaspoon crushed chilli

Hummus

  • 400g can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • juice 2 lemons
  • 1–2 cloves garlic (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons tahini
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons water

Topping

  • bunch fresh coriander, roughly chopped
  • ½ red capsicum, deseeded and sliced
  • ½ cup roasted pistachio nuts
  • lemon zest
  • balsamic syrup glaze (or pomegranate molasses)

Method

In a food processor, combine chickpeas, whero peas (if using), lemon juice, garlic (if using) and tahini. Pulse until smooth. With the machine running, slowly add olive oil and water and blend until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Set hummus aside.

Heat oil in a non-stick frying-pan over a moderate heat. Fry onion slowly until softened, and add lamb mince. Cook the mixture until mince is crispy and well browned, then add chilli and season with salt and pepper.

To assemble, place hummus onto a serving plate and, using the back of a spoon, spread it around the edge, making a well in the centre. Spoon crispy lamb over hummus and sprinkle coriander, capsicum, pistachios and lemon zest over the plate. Drizzle with balsamic syrup and serve at room temperature with lightly fried or baked pita bread.
