Recipe of the week: Lamb curry, sweet potatoes and a carrot salad


These two recipes of the week will keep you curious in the grocery store and on your toes in the kitchen as you slice those carrots with a mandoline or carefully with a knife.

Moroccan Carrot Salad

5 medium carrots, sliced into thin “coins” using a mandoline or knife

1/2 cup cooked quinoa

1/3 cup golden raisins

1/3 cup pepitas

1/2 cup chickpeas, drained

3 tablespoons flat leaf parsley

3 tablespoons mint

For the dressing:

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

1 tablespoon maple syrup

1/4 teaspoon cumin

3 tablespoons olive oil

Toss all ingredients. This can be made ahead, but add pepitas, herbs and dressing just before serving. The quinoa can be made the day before.

Coconut Lamb Curry with Sweet Potatoes

1 tablespoon canola oil

2 1/4 pounds trimmed lamb shoulder, cut into 1-inch cubes

Salt and pepper

2 tablespoons minced garlic

2 tablespoons minced peeled fresh ginger

1 tablespoon Madras curry powder

1 1/2 cups chicken stock or low-sodium broth

1 (14-oz.) can unsweetened coconut milk

2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch dice

Chopped cilantro and toasted unsweetened coconut flakes, for garnish

Lime wedges and steamed rice, for serving

In a large pot, heat the oil until shimmering. Season the lamb with salt and pepper, add it to the pot and cook over moderately high heat, turning occasionally, until browned, about 8 minutes. Add the garlic, ginger and curry powder and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in the stock and coconut milk and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer over moderately low heat until the lamb is tender, about 45 minutes.

Add the sweet potatoes to the curry and simmer until tender, about 15 minutes. Spoon into bowls and garnish with chopped cilantro and toasted coconut. Serve with lime wedges and steamed rice. Serves 4.
