Lamb Chummus Plate


This looks like a laundry list of ingredients, but it’s not complicated if you do what I do and stand in front of the spice cabinet, pull them out, use them, and put them right back. This is my go-to dish to elevate any meal from nice to amazing in one easy swoop.


Prepare the Lamb

1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit (150 degrees Celsius).
2. Combine tomato paste, balsamic vinegar, maple syrup, and spices. Spread liberally on lamb in a baking pan. Pour chicken stock halfway up the pan, being careful not to wash off the seasonings. Cover tightly and bake for four hours.
3. Allow to cool slightly, then shred the meat with one to two tablespoons of liquid from the pan. If making in advance (and I suggest you do), heat up the meat before serving in a frying pan so the pieces are slightly crisped.

To Serve

1. Spread chummus on the plate. Heap the lamb into the center and garnish with herbs, pine nuts, and pomegranate seeds, or garnish with nothing at all. It’s still delish.
