Loaded Lamb Hummus

Levantine food is having its moment in the sun, and rightly so - vibrant flavours and colours, outstanding combinations of pulses, vegetables & fresh herbs. This dish worked as part of a light dinner, chat, dip & munch your way through this plate of deliciousness.

In keeping with simplicity and great ingredients, I squeeze the meat from some amazing organic lamb & mint sausages, browned it and brake it down - the perfect topping to the creamy dip.

WHO ARE COOMBE FARM ORGANIC?​

We are an organic farm in Somerset producing award-winning pork, beef, lamb and chicken. Farming organically means that we never use chemicals on our fields and rely instead on natural methods that are kinder to nature. Organic farms are home to 30% more species of wildlife and 50% more pollinators as a result.

WHAT IS ORGANIC LAMB?​

All of our organic lamb comes from free-range animals born and reared in our lush, sustainable West Country pastures. Many lambs are grown quickly, fed on grain to ‘finish’ them at speed, we believe that it’s better for animals to grow at the rate nature intended and lead active lives.

Ingredients

  • 4-6 organic lamb & mint sausages
  • 400g tin of chickpeas
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • juice of half a lemon
  • 90ml extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • big pinch of salt
  • water to loosen
  • black & green olives, fresh herbs, toasted pine nuts, sliced radishes, pomegranate seeds and extra v. olive oil, to garnish

Method

  1. Add all the hummus ingredients apart from the water to a food processor or blender, blend until combined, and check consistency. I usually add 1-3 tablespoons of water and re-blend until it’s to your liking
  2. Pop the hummus on a plate. Prepare the cold toppings, and adorn the hummus with the pretty garnishes, leaving a space somewhere for the lamb
  3. In a non-stick pan, no oil needed, squeeze out the sausage meat from the skins and brown. Then break up into crumbly chunks
  4. When the lamb is cooked, add to the hummus and add a final flourish of seeds and herbs
  5. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil. Serve with crudités and flatbread

Frequently asked questions

  • Our lambs are sourced from local farms and thrive on a diet of grass as well as clover and herbs.

  • Lamb refers to young meat, which is tender with a pale pink colour, where as mutton is meat from a sheep that is over two years old, at The Organic Butchery, our mutton comes from ewes who've retired from the breeding flock. That means they've grown to maturity naturally, have well-developed muscles and a strong skeleton. All of these things ensure their meat is strongly flavoured (but not 'gamey') and has excellent texture (but isn't stringy). Mutton's a distinctive meat that's having a bit of a renaissance at the moment.

  • When choosing lamb to purchase, it is worth carrying out some research. There are several studies that suggest organic meat is a healthier option, containing less saturated fat and higher in omega- 3 fatty acids, which are good for your heart. We believe organic lamb tastes better than commercially farmed alternatives, tasting ‘meaty’, rich, sweet and decadent. All of The Organic Butchery's lamb comes from our trusted local suppliers. They thrive on a diet of grass as well as clover and herbs. Growing slowly, the lambs build hearty immune systems and strong skeletons. All of this influences the way their meat tastes and cooks, we really believe that happy animals result in the best quality and best tasting meat.
