Serving Size

Makes 12 chops
400 Calorie Meal: Have 3 chops
600 Calorie Meal: Have 4 chops

What you'll need

½ large cauliflower, cut into florets
2 TBSP olive oil, divided
Salt and pepper to taste
½ large bunch kale, (about 4 ounces) trimmed and torn into large pieces
2 cups cooked brown lentils (may be warm or cold)
½ small red onion, finely chopped
½ cup fresh parsley leaves, chopped
½ tsp. honey
1 TBSP lemon juice
½ tsp. ground mustard
2 tsp. ground cumin
½ tsp. ground turmeric
12 French-trimmed lamb chops (cutlets)

What to do

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with foil.

Toss the cauliflower with 1 Tablespoon of the olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Spread onto the baking sheet and roast for 15 minutes. Add kale to the tray, return tray to the oven and roast an additional 8-10 minutes or until cauliflower is tender.

Meanwhile, combine lentils, onion, parsley, honey, remaining 1 Tablespoon of oil and lemon juice in a bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper and set aside.

Combine mustard, cumin and turmeric and sprinkle evenly over the lamb cutlets. Heat a large nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add the cutlets, working in batches so as not to crowd, and cook 2 minutes on each side or until cooked to your liking. As each batch finishes cooking, transfer to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm.

Add roasted vegetables to the lentil mixture and stir gently. To serve, arrange cutlets on top of lentil salad.
