- To a large bowl add the couscous, half of the diced onion, 1 cup of the raisins, salt, curry powder and ½ teaspoon of the cinnamon. Add the boiling water, stir and cover the bowl. Let stand for four or five minutes or until water is cooled enough to touch.
- Preheat the oven to 425. Line an 8x8x2-inch baking dish with foil for easy lift out. Spritz lightly with cooking spray to prevent sticking.
- Add the ground lamb to the couscous mixture. Lightly beat the egg and add to the mixture. Mix well; it seems to work best with your hands. Place in the prepared baking dish and smooth and level the surface with a spatula. Bake on a upper oven rack for 20 to 30 minutes or until an internal temperature of 165.
- While the loaf is cooking, in a saucepan combine the tomatoes, and the remaining raisins, onion and cinnamon. Add ¼ cup of water. Bring to a boil over high heat while gently stirring. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer, covered until tomatoes pop open.
- Remove the cooked meatloaf from the oven and allow to rest in the pan for five minutes. Lift the cooked meatloaf put of the pan using the foil as handles. Gently slide onto serving dish. Cut into four or six slices. Garnish with some of the compote mixture and serve the rest of the compote on the side.
- Serving Suggestion: Serve with sautéed green beans. Snap ends of beans and pull strings. Sauté in olive oil until the beans are just tender. Season with a bit of salt and fresh ground black pepper.
