Does anyone have one they love to recommend, not the delia one with beans, I never like the end result for some reason.

I have got 3lb or lean lamb shoulder diced and can’t decide what to do with it. Could be mildly spiced.

My usual recipe is the nigella one with pomegranate but I fancy a change.

Our favourite is Lamb & Lentil Stew (you could call it a casserole though).

There are 6 of us, so you may want to scale-down:

- 2 large sweet potatoes, diced
- 3 carrots, diced
- 2 tins of chopped tomatoes
- two handfuls of red lentils
- About 400g of lamb (or whatever leftover from a joint)
- lamb stock cube and enough water to cover the veg
- 1 tsp of each: cinnamon, paprika, cumin

Chuck all in slow cooker for about 1.5-2h on high or 4-5h on low.

If your children are not as fussy as mine, it's nice to also add chopped dried apricots.

Thank you both, I am cooking for an amazing cook friend so want it to be a bit nicer than a normal stew!

I do have a bulb of fennel in the fridge, I will look at good food.

The lamb, squash and orzo casserole recipe here is gorgeous:

That does look nice ... apart from all that making your own stock business. I will add that to my list.

I did check the guardian feast bit from yesterday, there is a really nice recipe with minced lamb and aubergines for another day.

I am cooking big and freezing half of everything I cook at the minute otherwise I would save half my lamb.
