1 bunch chard
1oz olive oil
600g diced shoulder of lamb
1 tbsp chives
2 tsp garlic oil
1 tsp each ground turmeric, cumin seeds, coriander seeds
pinch chilli flakes
400ml stock, lamb or chicken
handful toasted pine nuts
Strip the chard leaves from the stalk. Cut the stalk into batons and roughly shred the leaves. Set aside separately.
Heat the oil in a sauté pan and fry the lamb for 5-6 mins over a high heat until browned. Add the chard stalks, garlic oil and spices and continue to cook for 3-4 mins until softened. Pour over the stock, and scatter in the raisins, then simmer for 4-5 mins to make a sauce. Wilt chard leaves through the stock, season and serve scattered with pine nuts.
