Ingredients

  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 small carrot
  • 2 roasted red peppers from a jar
  • 2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound ground lamb
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt, divided
  • 1 Tablespoon Moroccan Magic Spice Club Blend
  • 3 oz. tomato paste
  • 1 cup water
  • 9 oz. cooked lentils (available in the produce section, I like Melissa's brand)

Instructions

  • Cut onion into a medium dice. Mince garlic and slice carrot in half lengthwise and then crossways into half moon shapes. Dice roasted red pepper. Set aside.
  • Heat olive oil over medium-high heat in a medium sized soup pot. Add ground lamb and brown, breaking up with a metal spoon into smaller bits. Add 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt.
  • Once the lamb is browned, add the chopped veggies and cook until starting to soften, about five minutes. During this time add the Moroccan Magic spice blend and another 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt. Stir to combine.
  • Add tomato paste, water, cooked lentils, and bring to a boil. Simmer for 20 minutes and serve hot. Serve with rice, pasta, or flat bread on the side.
