Weekly Challenge #3

Building on the great success of the first two weeks challenges, it’s time for week #3’s challenge.  The fridge isn’t offering up a lot of different ingredients at the moment so I’m calling an audiable and going to the pantry.  Not that I have any hard, fast rule about only using produce, but I prefer fresh (and Organic!) ingredients.  With that in mind, this week’s challenge is to use the following ingredients and up to two of your own and come up with a recipe:

  • Ground lamb (1lb)
  • Baby Spinach
  • White Rice
  • White Mushrooms

If you need help in how this challenge thing works, check out How This Works.  Basically, take the ingredients listed above and up to two of your own, add in any of the spices and herbs I already have and come up with a recipe.  Feel free to list the recipe at your own site and link back to it, or just post the whole thing in the comments section below.  You have until 10am, Pacific Time (UTC-8) to list your recipe.  This site is all about trying new things while I learn to cook more and I can use your help!

    Recipe: Kofta with rice, sauteed spinach, & mushrooms

    In a large bowl place the ground lamb, 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp cinnamon, and 1/2 tsp ground pepper, 1/4 cup finely chopped parsley, and 1/2 grated and drained onion. Mix until the texture becomes sticky. If you have metal kebab skewers, wet hands and form the mixture around the skewer. If not, shape into a sausage. If you used skewers, grill on high 3-4 minutes per side. If not, broil on a lightly greased sheet of aluminum foil on a cookie sheet for 3-4 minutes per side.

    Rice: cook according to the directions on the rice, but add in 1 tbl butter and 1 tsp salt (assuming that you are making a 2 person serving.

    Mushrooms: thread on a skewer and grill along side the meat or broil drizzled with a little olive oil.

    Spinach: saute in olive oil until wilted. Season with salt & pepper to taste.
