A Greek Philosophy: Lamb and Feta Stew
Good afternoon farmhoppers!
The kitchen is smelling divine here at Seedcamp. As per our introduction to Urbangrains, we have channelled our inspiration and dreams of warmer climates into a tasty and light Greek classic. So, rather than give in to the cold weather all together and reach for the nearest carb-heavy winter standard, below is a recipe we have adapted from Olive Magazine, it incorporates beautiful and healthy Mediterranean products.
A Greek Lamb and Feta Stew
1-2 hours, Serves 4.
- Urbangrain’s Organic Extra Virgin olive oil
lamb neck 600g, cut into chunks
aubergine 1 large, cut into chunks
onions 2, sliced
garlic 2 cloves, sliced
chopped tomatoes 400g tin
Urbangrain’s Sun Dried Tomato Paste, 1 tbsp
lamb stock 200ml
cinnamon 1 stick
flat-leaf parsley 1/2 a small bunch, chopped
lemon 1, zested
Urbangrain’s Authentic Greek feta 200g block, crumbled
Heat 1tbsp olive oil in a non-stick, lidded casserole. Brown the lamb all over then remove from the pan. Add the aubergine and another tbsp of oil and cook until browned and softened a bit. Scoop out the aubergine then add the onions and garlic and cook until softened and golden.
Add the lamb and aubergine back with the tomatoes, 1 tbsp of tomato paste, stock and cinnamon. Bring to a simmer then put on a lid and cook for 1 hour or until the lamb and aubergine are tender. Scoop out the cinnamon stick. Mix the parsley, lemon and feta and sprinkle over the stew just before serving.
Recipe extra: if you’re not an aubergine fan you can use courgette or pepper instead.
