Left over roasted lamb, cut into small pieces
a knob of coconut oil
1tsp cumin seeds
6 leaves of kale, chopped finely
2 cups of cooked rice/lentils
8-10 rice paper sheets
mint leaves
coconut oil for glazing



1. Pre-heat oven to 180C
2. In a frying pan gently fry off the coconut oil, cumin and kale. Mix with the rice/lentils and lamb pieces.


3. Fill a flat bowl with boiling water and one at a time, submerge the rice paper in it till they go clear and are cooked. Remove from water, put a spoonful of lamb mixture and 1 or 2 mint leaves on top then fold the parcel. Brush with coco oil and repeat.


4. Pop into the oven for 10 minutes, turn over and put in for another 10 minutes. Serve with fresh vegetables and eat whilst hot.
