Spiced lamb chops with a cauliflower salad

15 minutes (5 minutes)
Serves 4
  • 1/2 large head cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 250g can no added salt lentils, rinsed, drained
  • 1/2 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh continental parsley leaves, chopped
  • 150g baby spinach leaves, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Olive oil spray
  • 10g root ginger, coarsely chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 50g reduced fat Greek yoghurt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 3 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3/4 teaspoon chilli powder
  • 1 tablespoon garam masala
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 8 lamb chops, fat trimmed (approximately 50g each)
  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Line 1 large baking tray with baking paper. Spread the cauliflower over prepared tray and sprinkle 2 teaspoon cumin over the cauliflower. Roast for 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, place lentils, red onion, parsley, baby spinach, and olive oil in a large bowl and toss to combine.
  3. To make marinade for the lamb, blend together ginger, garlic, yoghurt, black pepper, 1 teaspoon cumin, chilli powder, garam masala and lemon juice until smooth using a hand held blender or food processor.
  4. Pierce the lamb all over with a fork and pour the marinade over the lamb, turning to coat well.
  5. Preheat a chargrill or large non-stick frying pan over medium heat and cook the chops for 2-3 minutes each side or until cooked to your liking. Transfer to a plate. Cover loosely with foil and set aside to rest for 3 minutes.
  6. Add the cauliflower to the lentil salad and gently stir to combine. Serve lamb chops with lentil salad and lemon wedge.
