  • 250g lamb mince
  • ½ a small bunch of mint, plus a few mint leaves to garnish
  • 30g pistachios, plus a few extra to garnish
  • 1 lemon, zested
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 200g tub plain hummus
  • 30g feta, crumbled


  1. Put the lamb mince, mint and pistachios in a food processor. Roughly pulse to combine, then add the lemon zest and season generously with salt and pepper. Shape into eight meatballs. 

  2. Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Fry the meatballs for 8-10 mins, turning so that they become evenly browned. Spread the hummus onto a plate. Top with the meatballs, a few mint leaves, the crumbled feta, some chopped pistachios and a squeeze of lemon juice.
