  • DifficultyMedium
2 tbsp olive oil
500g lean lamb, cubed (from leg and shoulder)
1/4 tsp salt
Pinch ground black pepper
1 medium onion, diced
2 large cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp tomato puree
2 stalks celery, rinsed, trimmed, diced
2 large carrots, cut into chunks
2 parsnips, roughly chopped
1 (400g) tin chickpeas, drained
190ml dry red wine
750ml chicken stock or water
1 (425g) tin tomato sauce
1 tsp orange zest
1 large orange, segmented, juice reserved
1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
2 tbsp freshly chopped mint leaves
1) Heat the oil in a large pot over high heat until hot but not smoking. Season the meat lightly with salt and pepper and sear in the oil until browned on all sides, about five minutes.

2) Add the onions and garlic and cook for an additional five minutes. Add the tomato paste and stir to incorporate, cooking for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the celery, carrots, parsnips, chickpeas, wine, chicken broth, tomato sauce, orange zest, segments and juice, and cumin. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, cover and simmer until lamb is tender, about 90 minutes.

3) Season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat, cool slightly and ladle into bowls.

Top stew with fresh mint and serve.
