Lamb Pilaf

You don't have to be a fortune teller to know which vegetable is going to save the day in this recipe... but if you didn't guess, it's pumpkin... again.  *insert shocked face here*

What you'll need:

lamb mince
seasoning of choice (I use cajun seasoning)
1/2 tsp turmeric
chopped onion
2 cups of rice (use more if you want!)
frozen peas and corn mix
pumpkin, chopped
stock (I always use chicken or vegetable, if it's not a tomato based meal)

How to do what I did:

Mix the lamb mince and seasoning well.  Roll into small meatballs, and fry in the oil in a large frying pan, until cooked through.  Remove from pan and set aside.  In the remaining oil, fry off the rice, onion and pumpkin for 1-2 minutes.  Add frozen veges, turmeric and cover with stock.  Cover and let simmer until rice and pumpkin are cooked and stock has been absorbed.  (Do a taste test and make sure and add more stock if needed.)  Once the rice is cooked, add the meatballs back in and warm through.

Serve, eat, yada yada yada!  Hurrah!  Another delicious home made marvel... ;o)
