Salt & pepper to taste

  1. Mix Lupin Flakes, pomegranate molasses and stock together and let sit for at least 15 minutes.
  2. Combine onion, garlic and chilli in a large bowl. Add the lupin mix, lamb, cumin, paprika, preserved lemon and herbs, mix thoroughly and season to taste with salt and pepper.  Rest for at least one hour to allow flavours to develop.
