Healthy Lamb Rice Bowl
October 11, 2016
It may technically be the middle of spring but it feels like we are moving towards winter rather than summer. It seems as if summer is in no rush to arrive so I am moving our family meals towards it instead. This meal is a mix of raw and cooked vegetables, making it a fresh, healthy choice for the family meal table.
The beauty of using lamb backstraps in a meal is that the meat is so tender. It can be thinly sliced to go a long way in a meal, especially when paired with rice and vegetables. This recipe can be modified to include vegetables you have on hand.
Coconut Amnios is a soy and wheat free alternative to soy sauce made from coconut extract. You can find it at some health and wholefood stores or larger delis.
If you are unable to source it, use 1/2 tablespoon of fish sauce and 1/2 tablespoon light soy or tamari.
The fresh citrus flavour of lime and the combination of raw and cooked ingredients means that the meal is not heavy, but will satisfy anyone in the family who enjoys a hearty evening meal. The mix of raw and cooked ingredients also provides a variety of texture and freshness. It is was little preview of summer for my belly.
Make sure you cook the lamb on a high heat, or you could use the BBQ, to achieve the smokey outer crust that works so perfectly with the melt-in the mouth tenderness of each slice.
Are you family meals moving towards warmer weather yet? What is on your plate this week?
