Ready in 50 minutes 

Serves 4


  • Low-calorie cooking spray
  • 600g lean lamb leg steaks, all visible fat removed, cut into bite-size chunks
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 small cinnamon sticks, halved
  • 1 large aubergine, cut into small chunks
  • 400ml boiling lamb or chicken stock
  • 250g dried basmati rice
  • 300g apricots, halved, stoned and cut into wedges
  • 100g baby spinach, shredded
  • ½ small pack fresh mint, roughly chopped


Spray a large non-stick casserole pan with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a high heat. Season the lamb and fry until nicely browned all over. Transfer to a plate with a slotted spoon.

Add the onion, cinnamon sticks and 2 tbsp water to the pan, cover and reduce the heat to low. Cook for 10 minutes or until the onion is soft.

Increase the heat to high and stir in the aubergine. Cover again and cook for 2-3 minutes, then uncover once more and stir in the stock, rice, lamb and ½ tsp salt. Bring to the boil then cover, reduce the heat to low and cook for 12 minutes.

Scatter the apricots and spinach on top of the rice, cover and cook for 5 minutes or until the spinach has wilted, the rice is tender and the stock has been absorbed. Remove from the heat and leave to stand, without lifting the lid, for 5 minutes.

Add most of the chopped mint, check the seasoning and stir everything together.

Scatter over the remaining chopped mint and serve straight away.
