I went through many iterations of this recipe to get it right – much to the delight of my other half who has loved each attempt! Steaming the eggplant and zucchini has allowed me to increase the number of serves and stops the vegetables from getting mushed up in the Thermomix bowl. This stew can be served with quinoa, couscous or rissoni.

Moroccan-Inspired Lamb Stew

Spices like coriander, cinnamon, cumin, and paprika gives this dish flavours of Moroccan cuisine. Cooking the lamb in the Thermomix makes it nice and tender.
