I recently found an amazing recipe for a 'yum as' dip.
It went quite nicely with my little lamb pies, so I thought I'd share it with you.
Little lamby pies
300gms (ish) minced lamb
1 onion diced
2-3 cloves of garlic crushed
1 tsp cumin
1 chopped chili
2 tsp paprika
2 Tbsp tomato paste
1 hand full of fresh mint chopped
2 Tbsp of pine nuts or sunflower seeds
Vege of your choice I used a big bunch of chopped kale but you can do what ever you fancy, or none at all!
2 sheets of puff pastry
Oven to 180C
Cut the pastry into 1/4's and pop into 'monstor muffin' pans or something equivalent.
Brown mince, drain fat, add onion, garlic & spices, then T-paste, vege, mint & seeds. simmer, adding more liquid if needed ( this mix is dryer than your normal Spag bog mix) Set aside.
Bake some kind of wedges. I made kumera wedges. Bung your little pies in the oven until the pastry puffs nicely.
Caramelize an onion in 1 Tbsp of butter for around 20min. Pop in your blender/mixer with 1 Tbsp of wine or cider vinegar, 1 Tbsp of whole grain mustard & 3/4 Cup mayonnaise.
serve it all up with fresh green salad type thingy. Yum!
P.S: I often make this mince mix and pop it in a free form gallet shape with home made short pastry, making a layer of grated cheese on the bottom first in super nice.
