Recipe Video: Karane with Ground Lamb and Harissa

I hate to bake and for the most part not good at it! But there is something about quiche that I LOVE. So when I came across karane I was thrilled by not only the flavor but also to be able to add a baked dish to my cooking skills. This recipe is fast, easy and very adaptable, you can switch out the ground lamb crust with any other protein or vegetables.

  • 1 small chopped onion
  • 4 cloves of chopped garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • Take the chopped onion, garlic, and fresh parsley then combine with the ground lamb.
