Hello you lovely lot!

I hope everyone is well and keeping chipper!
As it's almost the weekend so I thought I'd share a new recipe that is perfect for this time of the year. I have got a bit Middle Eastern and if you love a low slow cooked dish then you have to try my Lamb Shawarma. The spice blend is sensational, I cooked it the other night with all the trimmings (pomegranate, hummus, pitta, spiced rice, zhoug) and it was unbelievable. I have made it super easy for you to make so you have to give it a go. You could also add aubergine and peppers halfway through too and if you want to try it in the slow cooker it will work beautifully.
I have also posted a recipe for the Zhoug which is the coriander dip you have with it!
So what do you think - are you adding this one to your list for the weekend? If you try it I definitely want to see pictures!

Penzey's in the US is a great source for sumac. Very high quality and good value. I've done several middle eastern dishes lately and it's very nice to sprinkle on at the last minute. Definitely going to try the shawarma next week. Looks appetizing. Thx for posting.

Hi @dcmorris27 it’s a Asian/Middle Eastern spice that is like a red powder or dust. It’s made from ground dried berries that come from the wild flower. It’s got a tangy, sour, taste. It’s a acidic like lemon juice but more gentle. The colour is really vibrant and if you look at my picture it’s the red powder sprinkled on the hummus. You could use amchoor powder or a squeeze of lemon instead.
