Quick Chermoula Lamb & Chickpea Rice Bowl

with Baby Leaves & Yoghurt

Chermoula spice is the ultimate complimentary seasoning for tender lamb and protein-rich chickpeas, and with hearty couscous plus a cooling yoghurt, this bowl is a burst of flavour in every bite! We can't wait to dig in.

We’ve replaced the couscous in this recipe with jasmine rice due to local ingredient availability. It’ll be just as delicious, just follow your recipe card!

Large Frying Pan



• Add the water (for the rice) to a medium saucepan and bring to the boil. • Add jasmine rice, stir, cover with a lid and reduce heat to low. • Cook for 10 minutes, then remove the pan from heat and keep covered until rice is tender and all the water is absorbed, 10 minutes. Stir through chicken-style stock powder.

TIP: The rice will finish cooking in its own steam so don't peek!


• Meanwhile, in a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over medium-high heat. Cook lamb mince and soffritto mix until just browned, 4-5 minutes. • Meanwhile, drain and rinse chickpeas (see ingredients).


• Add chickpeas, garlic paste, tomato paste and the brown sugar and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1-2 minutes. • Add the water and remaining butter. Stir to combine and simmer until slightly reduced, 1 minute. • Add chermoula spice blend and baby leaves and stir to combine. Season to taste.


• Divide rice between bowls. • Top with chermoula lamb and chickpeas. • Serve with Greek-style yoghurt. Enjoy!
