Huh?

Posted on 10 Feb 2011 by maisha (posted in: blogs)

A recipe for a dish with meat? Huh?! Many people seem to have a misconception about vegetarians when it comes to vegetarians and preparing meat. Just because I don't eat it, doesn't mean I don't (know how to) prepare it. E is a carnivore after all... and even though he doesn't really care whether he eats veggie burgers or tofu, I do occasionally prepare meat.

I saw this recipe over at KERF, who, in turn, spotted it here. It was a big hit, or as E would say: 'You can definitely make this more often!'

And I will, although next time I think I would try using cooked quinoa or millet instead of couscous, just to see how that would turn out flavor-wise!

Moroccan Meatloaf (serves 6)

Ingredients


  • 72 g (1/2 c) whole grain couscous
  • 34 g (~ 1/4 c) raisins
  • 51 g chopped dried apricot pieces (about 8 whole dried apricots)
  • 1 spring onion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp garam masala
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • dash garlic powder
  • dash paprika powder
  • 180 mL (3/4 c) boiling water
  • 400 g (free-range) chicken breast
  • 1 egg



Method


  1. Place all the ingredients, minus the chicken and the egg, together in a bowl. Mix and let it stand.
  2. In a food processor, grind the chicken together with the egg until you have the consistency of ground chicken.
  3. Mix the ground chicken with the couscous mixture.
  4. Pat mixture into a baking paper lined baking pan. Bake in the top third of oven for about 20 minutes or until cooked through.
