Confession time.  The Geller family is not big into lamb. But I know there are people out there who are,   so I developed this recipe for Seasoned Lamb Skewers with Couscous especially for you lamb lovers! It’s fun, fantastically seasoned, and it’s ready in under an hour. (Just between us, you can substitute beef for the lamb, which is what I do.)

If you plan to use wooden skewers, don’t forget to soak them in water for at least 30 minutes before using.

The lamb (or beef) is combined with soaked whole wheat bread, red onion, parsley, red wine vinegar, cumin, oregano, cinnamon, and lemon zest. The couscous is tossed with pine nuts, raisins and chopped chives.  Instead of the chives, you could sauté some chopped red onions or shallots for a soft, sweet caramelized addition.  This quick dinner is nice enough to serve your guests on Yuntif.  Or CholHamoed.Orany weeknight.So what I’m saying is – enjoy it anytime!
