Slow Roasted Lamb Shoulder In Flat Bread

Souvlaki Ready To Go

When I cleaned out my freezer I came across a shoulder of lamb and decided I had better try to use it. It is not one of my husbands favourite cuts of meat and I thought I had better find something different to serve it with. I decided a type of souvlaki would be a nice way to eat the lamb after slow roasting.

I did my research on line and found a very easy flat bread without yeast and decided to replace the flour with spelt and add a few optional extra ingredients.

Salad for Souvlaki          Yoghurt Sauce

I collected some salad ingredients from my fridge and lettuce from my garden. I found a recipe for the yoghurt sauce which included mint and spring onions.
