Lamb and Couscous Patties with Roasted Sweet Potatoes

What about a new recipe low in calories? One that is pretty low on carbohydrates, too. As side-dish, we’ve used 2 sweet potatoes cut into sticks which went into the oven for 35 minutes. For the lamb patties, we enhanced the mince with couscous, spring onion, and carrot. If you’re not avoiding dairy products, it is best for you to serve these with a yogurt sauce.

Ingredients

2 sweet potatoes, cut into sticks
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
salt
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
3 ounces of couscous
⅔ cup boiled water
8 ounces of lamb mince
1 green onion, chopped
1 carrot, shredded
1 egg
salt
pepper

Steps

  1. Add the sweet potato sticks to a baking dish and drizzle with vegetable oil. Season with salt and smoked paprika and bake for 35 minutes at 380⁰F/190⁰C.
  2. Add the couscous to a smaller bowl and cover it with the boiled water. Cover with a plate and let it soak for 5-7 minutes.
  3. Add the lamb mince, soaked couscous, spring onion, carrot, and egg to a bowl. Season with salt and pepper and mix until even.
  4. Shape meatballs or patties with the mince mixture. We’ve got 12.
  5. Heat a drizzle of oil in a grill pan over medium-high heat and add the patties. Grill them for 5-6 minutes on both sides, or until they’re browned. You may have to cook them in 2 batches, depending on the size of your pan.
  6. Serve them with the sweet potato sticks and with a white dip, if so desire.
