A perfect cheat for the slow cooker!
This is another recipe from the Gluten Free Cookbook, but we haven’t kept it gluten free as the corn tortillas were 3 times the price – not very fair for those who actually need it!
We very nearly got put off this recipe as you need to cook the lamb for 4 hours. But we found a plug we could set a timer to, so that it was ready in the slow cooker for when we got in – without being over cooked. It was perfect, it went from being a potentially long recipe eating before 7:30pm!
Admittedly we didn’t make the hummus from scratch, we just added the garlic, lemon juice, oil and paprika to a plain hummus we bought. It saved time, money and washing up. We did something similar by adding to a raita we got with an indian takeaway at the weekend… can’t say it saved us money though!
Personally I love lamb, and think it’s great when you find an exciting new way to serve it. I thought it was really nice considering how hassle free it felt! If we make this one again we will serve it with a cucumber and mint raita. We put mint in the salad, but it just wasn’t enough. Although it would be interesting to see if it would still work with the hummus too…
