SW recipe: Greek lamb & feta orzo

Serves 4
Ready in about 1 hour


Low-calorie cooking spray

600g lean lamb leg steaks, visible fat removed, cut into bite-size chunks

2 large onions, sliced

2 garlic cloves, crushed

2 small sprigs fresh rosemary, leaves chopped

2 small cinnamon sticks

1/2 tsp ground allspice

400g can chopped tomatoes

2 tbsp tomato purée

2 carrots, peeled and diced

2 large celery sticks, sliced

600ml Lamb or chicken stock

300g dried orzo pasta

200g green beans, to serve

200g spinach, to serve

50g reduced-fat feta, crumbled

1 tbsp chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley, to serve


1 Spray a large, non-stick saucepan or shallow, flameproof casserole dish with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a medium-high heat. Add the lamb and cook for 5-6 minutes, or until lightly browned all over. Remove to a plate with a slotted spoon.

2 Spray the pan with a little more low-calorie cooking spray. Add the onions, garlic, rosemary leaves and a splash of water, then cook for 10 minutes, or until the excess water has disappeared and the onions are soft and lightly browned. Stir in the lamb, cinnamon sticks, ground allspice, tomatoes, tomato purée, carrots, celery and stock, bring to a simmer, then cover and cook gently for 15 minutes.

3 Stir in the orzo, then re-cover and simmer for a further 20 minutes, or until the orzo is tender, stirring halfway. Meanwhile, boil the green beans for 3-4 minutes and the spinach in a separate pan for 2-3 minutes. Drain.

4 Discard the cinnamon sticks and evenly sprinkle over the feta and parsley. Divide between 4 plates and serve with the spinach and beans.

Ultimate Slimming Tips!

Slimming Tip 1 – Don’t go hungry
If you are hungry you need to eat. Depriving your body of food will just see you miserable and maybe even grabbing the high fat, high sugar foods instead. And that’s really not going to help.

Slimming Tip 2 – Fill up on Super Slimming Foods 
Now no food has the power to actually slim you down, but the foods with the least calories for the most amount of filling power will cut your calorie intake without you even realising.
These foods what to take priory over other foods, by filling your plate with at least 1/3 of the Super Slimming Foods will see the lbs literally drop off.

Slimming Tip 3 – Plan Plan Plan
Fail to plan is planning to fail. Make a solid plan not only for the foods and meal you are going to enjoy but also what might get in your way.
