This simple pulled ras el hanout lamb dish goes perfectly with G’NOSH Babaganoush and is perfect a summer treat at a BBQ, lots of flavour, lots of texture and pure goodness chucked in too!
1 shoulder of lamb
2 cloves of garlic
6 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp ras el hanout spice mix
2 tubs G’NOSH babaganoush
150g pomegranate seeds
Good handful of fresh mint
50g chopped dried apricots
Served with chargrilled pitta breads and fruited couscous
A fantastic dish for the barbeque. Neck fillets are a delicious and economical alternative to a rack! You need to cook them fast on a hot griddle. Or you could of course use chops instead, if you prefer.
700g lamb neck fillets
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
250g cous cous
Handful each of parsley, mint and coriander, finely chopped.
1teaspoon each of paprika and ground cumin
Juice and zest of a lemon
2 tablespoons Extra Virgin olive oil
1 tub G’NOSH Babaghanoush
Bring the lamb to room temperature. Season well and place on a hot barbeque, turning every few minutes. Allow it to get nicely charred. Cook for approximately 5 minutes each side, depending on how well done you like it. Remove, cover with foil, and rest whilst you prepare the rest of the meal.
Put the kettle on to boil. Place the cous cous into a bowl and add the olive oil, spices, lemon juice and salt and pepper. Mix well with a fork. Pour over the boiling water (or cook according to pack instructions), cover with foil and leave for 10 minutes.
Slice the lamb thinly with a sharp knife. Once the cous cous is ready, fluff with a fork, mix with the chopped herbs and arrange on a plate with the lamb. Finish with a drizzle of olive oil and a squeeze of lemon. Serve with Babaghanoush on the side.
Tip: some pomegranate seeds would work beautifully here!
Leftover G’NOSH? Have with some crudités for a healthy starter

You will need 8 x wooden kebab sticks, soaked in water for ½ an hour. This prevents them catching on fire! Or metal ones, which do not require soaking.
A selection of vegetables, chopped to an equal size. Try courgettes, peppers, cherry tomatoes and red onions (quartered).
I packet Halloumi cheese, cut into large cubes
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp lemon juice
Salt and pepper
Pre heat your grill to a high heat. These can be done on the barbeque too!
NB. The halloumi can be replaced with chicken. Add at the same time as the vegetables, with the marinade. These kebabs go great with all G’NOSH dips!Comments Off on Vegetable kebabs with Halloumi
As a fresh alternative, try serving whole grilled aubergines with other vegetables and G’NOSH Babaghanoush. An elegant mezze.Comments Off on Babaghanoush Mezze Platter
For those planning Christmas dinner early, Will’s Christmas Spiced Pork & Chestnut Wellington using G’NOSH Babaghanoush dip is the ideal turkey alternative. The smoky aubergine flavour of G’NOSH Babaghanoush lends itself perfectly to the rich pork and chestnut filling, creating a fabulous dish that not only looks impressive but is guaranteed to taste delicious.
Serves 4-6 people
1 tub GNOSH Babaganoush (160g)
50g chestnut puree
150g button mushrooms, chopped
150g aubergine, chopped
50g cooked and peeled chestnuts, chopped
1 clove of garlic
Large bunch of fresh parsley, chopped
10ml olive oil
1 tsp mixed spice
1 pork fillet (450g)
Salt and pepper
1 tsp mixed spice
1 pack of parma ham (8 slices)
1 pack of All Butter Puff Pastry (375g)
1 free-range egg
Pinch of salt
• To make the filling: Place the G’NOSH Babaghanoush into a bowl, stir in the chestnut puree and leave to one side.
• Add 25g of butter to a frying pan, followed by finely chopped mushrooms, aubergine, chestnuts, garlic and heat slowly. You’re not looking to necessarily add colour, but you do want to cook the vegetables and remove the water content.
• Once cooked, add the parsley and stir into the G’NOSH Babaghanoush and chestnut puree mix made earlier. Reserve in the fridge.
• Add the olive oil into the frying pan and heat. Add the pork fillet, turning regularly until browned on all sides. You will need to do this for approximately 5 minutes to seal in the flavor by colouring the meat. Add 25g butter and the mixed spice.
• Remove from the heat and baste the fillet in the butter and mixed spice and season with salt and pepper.
• Remove the pork fillet from the pan and leave to cool.
• Clean the frying pan with kitchen paper and then wilt the spinach in 20g butter and cinnamon. Once cooked, drain the spinach on kitchen paper to remove any moisture, so it doesn’t leak out and make the wellington soggy.
• To make the roll: Place two sheets of cling film (30cm x 60cm) over a large chopping board and lay out the slices of Parma ham in a vertical row of 8.
• Remove the G’NOSH Babaghanoush and chestnut puree from the fridge and spread over the Parma ham followed by the wilted spinach.
• Place the pork fillet on one side of the wilted spinach and roll tightly in the cling film. Leave this in the fridge overnight to set.
• To make the Wellington: Preheat your oven to 200C/400F/Gas Mark 6.
• Take the pork fillet roll out of the fridge and remove the cling film.
• To make the egg wash, mix the egg with a pinch of salt.
• Roll out the puff pastry to a 5mm thickness, and place the pork fillet roll on the bottom side of the pastry, moisten the rest of the pastry with egg wash, and roll the pastry over into a parcel creating a seal around the pork.
• Place the Spiced Pork & Chestnut Wellington on to a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper.
• Brush the remaining egg wash over the Wellington and bake in the oven for approx. 25-30 minutes or until the pastry has risen and is golden brown.
• Remove from the oven and leave to rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing – the pork should be nice and pink.
Will’s tip: Serve with honey glazed carrots and creamed cabbage and a good glass of vino!Comments Off on Will Torrent’s Christmas Spiced Pork & Chestnut Wellington

Go on…try it at home!
2 Chicken Breasts
2 Ciabbata Rolls
A Dollop of G’nosh Dip
1 Gem Lettuce
60g Cherry Tomatoes
2 Cloves of Garlic
A Couple of Sprigs of Rosemary
• Pre-heat your grill to high. Coarsely chop the baby gem lettuce and cut the tomatoes in half. Peel and finely dice one and a half cloves of garlic (we’ll use the leftover half later) and remove the rosemary leaves from the stalks
• Place your hand flat on each chicken breast and slice through its side, to open it up like a book. You’ve just ‘butterflied’ your chicken
• Coat each chicken breast in half a teaspoon of olive oil, the diced garlic, rosemary leaves, a bit of lemon zest and a squeeze of lemon juice. Lastly, season them well with salt and pepper before grilling them for about 6 minutes on each side
• To make the dressing simply mix a teaspoon of lemon juice, 2 teaspoons of olive oil and and a pinch of salt and pepper
• Once the chicken is cooked cut the ciabatta in half and grill each side until it’s nicely toasted. Rub the little chunk of garlic you have left across the surface of the bread and then top this with a healthy spoonful of your G’NOSH CHUNKY Sun-Dried Tomato & Basil Dip
• Top the ciabatta with your grilled chicken and set up a deck-chair in any available piece of outdoor space you can find
Sometimes there is no better way to enjoy G’NOSH dips than just as a simple dip – but this doesn’t mean what you dip into them has to be boring!
