SW recipe: Greek lamb bake

Serves 4
Ready in 1 hour 10 minutes


Zest and juice of 1 unwaxed lemon

4 sprigs of fresh rosemary, leaves roughly chopped

4 garlic cloves, crushed

4 lean lamb leg steaks, visible fat removed

800g floury potatoes, such as Maris Piper or King Edward, cut into 1cm-thick slices

2 aubergines, cut into 1cm-thick slices

1 red onion, cut into small wedges

Low-calorie cooking spray

300g cherry tomatoes on the vine

4 tbsp fat-free natural yogurt


1 Preheat your oven to 220°C/fan 200°C/gas 7. Whisk together the lemon juice, and half the rosemary and garlic in a wide bowl. Add the lamb, season and toss to coat. Set aside to marinate.

2 Meanwhile, tip the potatoes, aubergines and onion into a large, non-stick roasting tin. Spray with low-calorie cooking spray, season and toss to coat. Shake the tin so that the vegetables sit in a single layer, then bake for 35-40 minutes until golden and almost tender, turning halfway.

3 Add the tomatoes with the remaining garlic. Top with the lamb, spray with a little low-calorie cooking spray, and return to the oven for a further 10-12 minutes, or until the lamb is cooked through, turning halfway. Drizzle over the yogurt, then scatter over the lemon zest and the remaining rosemary to serve.

Add in Healthy Extras®
To help provide a good balance of nutrients, enjoy two measured portions of milk or cheese each day – your Healthy Extra ‘a’ choices. Options include 350ml skimmed milk or 250ml semi-skimmed milk; 40g reduced-fat or 30g full-fat hard cheese; 50g mozzarella (cow’s milk); 45g feta or 35g Danish blue, which can be eaten as part of a meal or snack. Also have one portion of wholemeal bread or breakfast cereal each day – your Healthy Extra ‘b’ choice. To keep things simple we’ve built your Healthy Extra ‘b’ choice into the menu plan each day.

Choose your Syns®
Foods and drinks that pose a risk to your weight loss – those high in fat or sugar, as well as alcohol – can be enjoyed as carefully counted Syns. We recommend you plan between 5 and 15 Syns into your day (see the bottom of the next page for some ideas).

Make simple swaps
To help protect your weight loss, choose the leanest meats and trim off any visible fat – cut the white bits off bacon and remove skin from poultry. Dry-fry or cook with low-calorie cooking spray rather than fat or oil, switch sugar for sweetener, and swap cream and crème fraîche for fat-free natural yogurt or plain quark.
