Slow-roast Turmeric Lamb with Rooibos and Apricot Couscous  



Chef Pieter and the Leopard’s Leap Kitchen has brought us this delightful roast and a whole new perspective on a leg of lamb. Turmeric with its convivial yellow is the flavour of the season – both from a health and fashion perspective. A slow-roasted turmeric leg of lamb with Rooibos and apricot couscous, does not only sound nice, it asks for more! Enjoy this delightful meal with a glass of 2016 Culinaria Grand Vin.

Ingredients

1 leg of lamb, boned and butterflied

2 cups yoghurt

1 tablespoon turmeric

1 tablespoon curry powder

2 cloves garlic, grated

5 cm piece ginger, grated

squeeze of 2 lemons

salt and pepper

500 ml lamb stock

The day before:  Season the leg with salt and pepper and place into a tray. Mix the yoghurt with the turmeric, curry powder, garlic, ginger and lemon-juice. Rub the leg of lamb all over with the yoghurt mixture and leave to marinate overnight.

The next day, preheat the oven to 160 °C. Add the lamb stock to the tray. Cover with foil and roast for 3 – 4 hours or until the lamb starts to fall apart.

Once cooked, pull the lamb apart and serve with the couscous.

For the couscous

300 g couscous

300 ml chicken stock

3 Rooibos tea bags

salt

1 teaspoon curry powder
