Use lean lamb mince and an array of spices to create memorably delicious sausage rolls.
500g lean lamb mince
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 teaspoon ground cumin seeds
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon chilli flakes
1 teaspoon sweet paprika
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon dried mint
1 teaspoon dried oregano
2 sheets frozen puff pastry, thawed
1 egg yolk
1/2 teaspoon sumac
Pomegranate molasses, to drizzle
Tomato and pomegranate salad
2 preserved lemon quarters, white pith removed, rind finely chopped
Seeds of 1 pomegranate
4 tomatoes, seeds removed, thinly sliced
2 cups mint leaves
2 cups flat-leaf parsley leaves
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
120g soft goat’s cheese
1 Preheat the oven to 200°C.
2 Combine lamb, garlic, spices and herbs in a bowl and season. Press the pastry sheets together to form a long sheet, then halve lengthways. Divide filling between the pastry, shaping it into a log along one side. Roll up to form a roll, brush pastry edge with water and press to seal. Brush with egg and sprinkle with sumac. Place, seam-side down, on a baking tray and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden.
3 Meanwhile, for the salad, toss all ingredients in a bowl. Set aside.
4 Drizzle molasses over sausage rolls and slice, then serve with salad.
