  1. Step 1

    Place the lamb in a sealable plastic bag. Add the spice mix and shake to coat. Heat the oil in a large non-stick heavy-based frying pan over medium heat. Add the garlic and half the spring onion. Cook, stirring, for 1-2 mins or until spring onion softens.
  2. Step 2

    Add the lamb and cook, turning often, for 2-3 mins or until lightly browned. Add the tomatoes, zucchini and 1/3 cup (80ml) water. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low. Simmer, uncovered, for 10-15 mins or until the lamb and zucchini are tender. Season.

  3. Step 3

    Stir in the lentils and beans and simmer for a further 2-3 mins or until heated through. Divide among serving bowls and sprinkle with the remaining spring onion.
