Lamb cutlets with feta and mint couscous


  1. 6 New Zealand lamb cutlets, French-trimmed
  2. A pinch of ground cumin
  3. 150g couscous
  4. The juice of 1 lemon
  5. 2 tbsp olive oil
  6. A handful pomegranate seeds
  7. 100g feta, crumbled
  8. A few fresh mint leaves, shredded
  9. 50g natural yogurt
  10. A squeeze of lemon juice
  11. Flatbreads, to serve


  1. 1. Preheat the grill to high. Season the lamb and dust each side with a pinch of ground cumin. Cook on a grill pan under the grill for 2-3 minutes each side, until browned but still pink in the middle, then remove and rest.
  2. 2. Meanwhile, put the couscous into a bowl, pour over 200ml boiling water, cover and leave to stand for 10 minutes. Fluff up with a fork, then season and stir in the juice of 1 lemon, 2 tbsp olive oil, pomegranate seeds, feta and a few fresh mint leaves.
  3. 3. Pile spoonfuls onto plates and top with the grilled lamb. Mix natural yogurt with the lemon juice and a few more shredded fresh mint leaves and put in small pots to serve on the side. Accompany with flatbreads, if you like.
