  • tortillas, shredded lettuce and soured cream, to serve
  • black bean sauce (optional)


  1. Place the lamb, onion, sweet red peppers, courgettes and black garlic in a non-metallic bowl.
  2. Mix the olive oil, lime juice, soy sauce and chilli powder together. Pour over the lamb and vegetables. Leave to marinate for an hour.
  3. When you are ready to eat, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil or stir fry oil in a wok. Heat until it is hot. Add the meat and vegetable mixture.
  4. Stir-fry over a high heat until the meat and vegetables are cooked.
  5. Season to taste. Stir through the chopped fresh coriander. As an optional extra a tablespoon of black bean sauce makes a good addition.
  6. Serve straight away with tortilla wraps, lettuce and sour cream.


Donal's tip: Substitute the lamb for chicken or for a vegetarian version add different vegetables such as mangetout and baby corn.
