1kg Coles Australian 3 Star Beef Mince
1/3 cup (50g) semi-dried tomatoes, drained, finely chopped
1 tablespoon Moroccan spice mix
1/2 cup chopped coriander
3 garlic cloves, crushed
1 Coles Brand Australian Free Range Egg, lightly whisked
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
450g pkt Sun Rice Family Size Microwave Brown Rice
400g can brown lentils, rinsed, drained

Combine the mince, semi-dried tomato, spice mix, chopped coriander, egg and two-thirds of the garlic in a bowl. Shape around soaked bamboo skewers. Place in the fridge for 15 mins to chill.

Heat 1 tbsp oil in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Add onion. Season with salt. Cook, stirring frequently, for 15 mins or until onion is golden and caramelized. Add allspice, cinnamon and remaining garlic and cook for 1 min or until aromatic. Add rice and lentils and cook for 3 mins or until heated through. Season. Stir through coriander leaves.

Meanwhile, heat remaining oil in a frying pan or barbecue flat plate over medium heat. Cook skewers, turning frequently, for 8 mins or until cooked through.

Serve skewers with the rice mixture and yoghurt.
