Bring a pot of lightly salted water to the boil. Add orzo pasta, cook for 5 minutes or until al dente. Drain.
Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Place the lamb and garlic in the frying pan. Season lamb with coriander, salt and pepper. Cook until evenly browned. Remove from heat and drain.
In a large bowl, mix the spinach, tomatoes, lemon juice, zest, mint, parsley, spring onions and remaining olive oil. Toss with the orzo, lamb and feta cheese to serve.
Tried this dish for the first time today, it was absolutely delicious. The blend of Lamb, lemon, mint, coriander and parsley made for a fantastic dish, one of my favourites. I would recommend this dish for anyone wanting to try something with a Mediterranean / Greek flavour. - 18 May 2011
