Baked Spicy Kibbeh
Slimming Eats Recipe
Extra Easy – 1.5 syns per serving (or Free using extra lean beef mince)
- 200g of bulgur wheat, uncooked
- 400g of lean lamb mince (or use extra lean beef mince to make this free) (6 syns)*
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 1 clove of garlic, crushed
- 1 small carrot, finely chopped
- 1 courgette, finely chopped
- 1 red pepper, finely chopped
- 2 teaspoons of paprika
- 2 teaspoons of chilli powder
- 2 tablespoons of tomato paste
- freshly chopped Italian parsley
- freshly chopped coriander
- garlic black pepper
- Greek spice mix (I buy this from the spice section at the supermarket)
*NOTE - Be sure to check the syn value of the lean lamb mince you use, as syns may vary.
Cover the bulgur wheat completely, in cold water and allow to soak for about 30mins.
Completely drain of any remaining liquid, and then add the bulgur wheat, 200g of the lamb mince, some garlic pepper and a handful of fresh parsley to a food processor and blend the mix all together. Set aside.
Spray a frying pan with low calorie spray, add the remaining lamb mince, onion, garlic, carrot, pepper and courgette and cook until browned.
Add the chilli powder, paprika, tomato paste, Greek spice mix and some freshly chopped coriander. Stir thoroughly to evenly cover. Allow meat to cool slightly
Preheat oven to 200c or 400f
Divide your bulgur wheat mixture up into 8 even sized portions like below
Take one of the portions and flatten it out into a pancake type shape, add a spoonful of the spicy lamb/vegetable mix and the mould up over the lamb/vegetable mixture to create oval shaped balls. Continue for all other portions and place them on a baking tray sprayed with Frylight or Pam spray
Spray over the top with more low calories spray and place in the oven and bake until golden all over and cooked through, approx 25-30 mins.
Serve on a bed of mixed leaves with a spicy tomato sauce (see recipe below)
