Lamb Tacos

BY Monica Yates

My favourite cuisine is definitely Mexican….I mean duh, GUAC!! I love the flavour of juicy lamb with guac, and adding some homemade tomato sauce, adds a ‘salsa’ like element.

Serves 4
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 500g lamb mince
  • 1 brown onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 Tbsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 2 Tbsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 cup bone broth or stock
  • 3 Tbsp homemade tomato sauce (optional, can omit or sub for 2 tbsp tomato paste)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 spring onions, white part and some of the green part chopped
  • Guacamole:
  • 2 avocados
  • 2 small red onions, diced or 1 large, diced
  • 1/2 cup fresh coriander, diced
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • Cos lettuce cups to serve
  • Coconut yoghurt or greek yoghurt to serve
  • 500g greens, steamed
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  1. Sauté the onion and garlic in coconut oil in a medium fry pan. Once translucent, add meat and brown. Break up meat pieces using a flat-ended wooden spoon. Add spices and broth and let simmer for 10-15 minutes. Add 3 tbsp my homemade tomato sauce and mix well.
  2. Meanwhile, make the guacamole by mashing the avocado and then adding everything into a bowl and mix until well combined.
  3. To serve, place some lamb in a lettuce cup, add guacamole and a dollop of yoghurt. Sprinkle with spring onions and devour!
  4. Serve 500g steamed greens with 1/4 cup olive oil over them and salt and pepper to taste.
