meals for uni- Ainsley Harriott's Lamb pittas

Hey guys! Todays' recipe is one by Ainsley Harriott that is in his low fat meals cook book which is one of my favourite cook books and I would recommend getting! I am showing you this recipe because it is really easy and you could easily make it for university if everyone chipped in.


(for 4) For this recipe you will need:
1 tablespoon of harissa or a chili sauce
1 lemon juiced
handful chopped fresh mint
350g of lean lamb fillets
4 pita breads (I used six giving us an extra half each)
bag of rocket
reduced fat hummus

Mix the Harrisa, juice and mint in a bowl and put the lamb into it. Use your hands to make sure the lamb is covered in the mixture. Leave to marinate for about ten minuets


Now heat oil in a frying pan if need be, and when hot add the lamb and cook for about 10 minuets until browned on the outside and pink on the inside or a little longer if prefered.

You could use this pan to heat up the pittas, or just pop them in the toaster. Cut the lamb up into smallish chunks if not already.

Fill each pitta with rocket, and then the lamb. Serve with a blob of hummus! (or just pile a much hummus as humanly possible like I do.)

These are delicious, one of my favourite meals ever!
Hope you enjoy,
Lot of love
