Equipment

You will need a food processor for this recipe.

Ingredients

1 small red onion
3 garlic cloves, halved
1/2 cup fresh mint leaves
500g lamb mince
1 1/2 teaspoons ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon dried chilli flakes
1 lemon, rind finely grated, juiced
1 tablespoon ground cumin
90g (1/4 cup) drained chickpeas
120g drained canned baby beetroot (see Notes)
2 tablespoons low-fat Greek yoghurt
150g grape tomatoes, halved
Wholemeal pita bread, grilled, to serve

Method

Step 1
Preheat panggangan to 180C/160C fan forced. Process the onion and 2 of the garlic cloves in a food processor until finely chopped. Finely chop half the mint. Combine the mince, onion mixture, chopped mint, coriander, chilli flakes, lemon rind and 3 tsp of the cumin in a bowl. Season well. Shape into eight 8cm-long kofte shapes. Thread 2 kofte each onto 4 metal skewers.

Step 2
Heat a non-stick ovenproof frying pan over medium-high heat. Spray kofte with olive oil. Cook, turning, for 5 minutes or until browned. Transfer to oven. Cook for 4-6 minutes or until just cooked through. Rest for 4 minutes.

Step 3
Meanwhile, for the hummus, process the chickpeas, beetroot, yoghurt, 1 tbs of the lemon juice and remaining garlic clove and cumin in a food processor until smooth and combined. Season.

Step 4
Combine the tomato, remaining mint leaves and 1 ⁄2 tbs lemon juice in a bowl. Divide kofte, beetroot hummus and tomato salad among serving plates. Serve with pita bread.

Notes

Canned baby beetroot is convenient, mild, sweet and ready to puree.

Replace the beetroot hummus with a store bought tub of tzatziki or regular hummus.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
