Lobster with Chickpeas and Coriander
Lobster with Chickpeas and Coriander



  • 1 lobster, cooked
  • 200g cooked chickpeas, drained
  • 2 lemons, juice only
  • 100ml veg stock
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp each smoked paprika and ground cumin
  • 2 bunches of coriander
  • ½ bunch of mint
  • 12 blanched almonds
  • 1 chopped garlic clove
  • ¼ broccoli, broken into florets
  • ¼ hispi cabbage or similar, leaves separated
  • 1 pak choi, leaves separated
  • ¼ romanesco or similar, broken into florets
  • Salt and pepper
  • Preheat the oven to 200C. Halve and crack the lobster and remove all the flesh, and slice. Pop half of the chickpeas and half the lemon juice in a blender, and add some stock and oil to blend to a mayo-like texture. Put the remaining chickpeas on a roasting tray, drizzle with oil, and sprinkle with the spices and seasoning. Roast for 20 mins.
  • Half-fill the lobster shell with your chickpea purée, then place the sliced lobster meat on top and drizzle with a little more oil. Cook in a steamer or colander over a saucepan of bubbling water for 5 mins, or until hot through.
  • Blend the coriander, mint, almonds and garlic with some lemon juice and oil to make a pesto. Meanwhile, blanch all of the green veg for 5 mins, or until just cooked, then remove with a slotted spoon. Serve the steamed lobster on top of the veggies, and scatter the pesto and roast chickpeas over the top. Delicious!
