Greek Style Lamb Koftas


  1. To make the lamb koftas, mix together lamb mince, parsley, garlic, cumin and coriander. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Divide the mixture into 8 balls. Form each ball around the pointed end of a skewer. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  3. To make the Israeli Couscous Salad, add Israeli couscous to a large pot of lightly salted boiling water. Reduce heat and cook for 7-8 minutes, stirring occasionally until couscous is just tender. Drain. Rinse with cold water and drain again. Allow to cool. Mix through almonds, apricots and chopped parsley. Season to taste. Set aside.
  4. Barbecue koftas over medium heat until browned and cooked through. This will take 6-8 minutes.
  5. Serve Koftas on the Israeli Couscous salad. Serve with a dollop of Good Taste Company Cucumber and Mint Dip.

Koftas make great nibbles with drinks. Make them smaller and serve with Good Taste Company Cucumber and Mint Dip.
