2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
400g cauliflower mash
200g leftover slow cooked lamb
50g feta cheese
Salt & pepper
1/4 cup almond meal
2 large eggs
1 tbsp water
1/2 cup almond meal
1/4 cup pork crackle crumbs
I am big on reducing our household waste and really don't like wasting food. I will often have a heap of small containers in the freezer with various leftovers that we can create new meals from.
These Lamb & Feta Croquettes are made using leftover cauliflower mash and leftover roast lamb. If you don't have leftover roast lamb, you could make them using lamb mince. Just cook it up in a little olive oil and add some seasoning. Chopped fresh rosemary would be a great addition to the lamb mince too.
There's a lot of rolling and coating for this dish so it is quite hands on and can take a bit of time. I often roll these and do the first coat the night before, then on the night I want to cook them I'll do the final coat and cook them. It just makes dinner that little bit easier.
I love a mix of almond meal and pork crackle crumbs as my crumb mix. It's delicious! However, you can definitely change it up and use all almond meal, all pork crackle crumbs, or your preferred crumb mix. For nut free I'd recommend all pork crackle crumbs, or golden flaxseed meal.
For dairy free, omit the feta cheese and add a couple of tablespoons of nutritional yeast flakes for a cheesy flavour.
Preheat the oven to 180° and line a tray with baking paper.
Combine mash, lamb, feta and S&P in a bowl and shape into small sausage sized balls.
Get 3 bowls and place 1/4 cup almond meal in one, egg wash mix in another (whisk well to combine) and crumb ingredients in another.
Doing one ball at a time, roll in the almond meal, then dip in the egg wash (allowing any extra to drip off) and then roll in the crumb mix. Place on the baking tray and repeat with the remaining ingredients.
Heat olive oil in a large fry pan and when hot, gently place croquettes in and cook for a minute or two on each side or until golden.
Transfer to the baking tray and when all are done, place in the oven for 10 mins to ensure they are heated all the way through.
Remove from the oven and serve with fresh salad.
