A recipe for 6 people proposed by the restaurant Terroar of Vougy.

falafels

  • 300 g green lentils from Puy-en-Velay,
  • 1 onion,
  • 1 clove of garlic,
  • Parsley,
  • 1 spoonful of tahini (sesame paste),
  • Sel

Soak 300 g of green Puy lentils overnight; the next day, drain them then chop them using a food processor or blender, adding a clove of garlic, flat-leaf parsley, 6 g of salt, an onion and a generous spoonful of tahini. Shape a few "meatballs" by hand then fry for about 5 minutes at 160°. Salt out of the fryer.

Naan bread

  • 400 g of flour,
  • 15 to 20 g of fresh baker's yeast,
  • 150 g of natural yoghurt,
  • Turmeric,
  • Sel

Mix 400 gr of flour with 4 pinches of salt. Dissolve 15 to 20 g of fresh baker's yeast in 150 g of natural yoghurt then incorporate into the previous mixture. Add a pinch of turmeric for color. Mix by hand for the bravest or 5 min in a robot with the hook.
Let “push” for 1 hour at room temperature then shape the patties using a rolling pin (Be careful to flour the work surface!)
Cook for a few minutes in a non-stick pan. The loaves must “bubbling” before being turned over.

Lamb

  • 1 shoulder of lamb,
  • thyme, rosemary, cumin seeds,
  • 1 onion,
  • 1 lemon,
  • Keufta Spices,
  • Olive oil.

Marinate a nice shoulder of local, well-bred lamb with thyme, rosemary, cumin seeds, onions, lemon, Keufta spices (or others) as well as a good olive oil for 1h30. Cook as a marinade in a tagine dish or in a foil for 45 minutes at 220°. The lamb should be cooked but still juicy. Coarsely chop the meat.

White sauce

  • 2 yogurts,
  • Spices,
  • chopped herbs,
  • Lemon juice,
  • Olive oil.

Mix 2 natural yoghurts with some spices, chopped herbs, lemon juice and olive oil.

Beetroot & raspberry ketchup

  • 4 beets,
  • 1 punnet of raspberries,
  • 2 tablespoons of sherry vinegar,
  • Some fresh herbs.

Put 4 already cooked red beets in a blender with a punnet of raspberries and two tablespoons of sherry vinegar (or a few frozen raspberries from past harvests for gardeners).

For dressing, a few beautiful fresh herbs, a little chioggia beetroot and you're done.
