These fiery lamb tacos are served with a cooling cucumber dip. This vibrant family meal is simple to make but impressive to boot.
- Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Add the onion and fry gently for 5 minutes. Stir through the harissa paste and continue to fry for 1 minute, then add the lamb mince and parsnip. Increase the heat and cook until the meat is browned. Stir in the tomatoes and 300ml (1/2 pint) water; season well. Bring to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes.
- Meanwhile, for the cucumber dip, combine all the ingredients in a bowl with a little seasoning. Set aside.
- Spoon the mince into the warm taco shells along with the lettuce and cherry tomatoes. Serve with the cucumber dip and olives and cheese, if you like.
