Ready in about 30 minutes
Syns per serving: 1
Low-calorie cooking spray
600g Maris Piper potatoes, peeled and chopped into small bite-size cubes
2 sprigs of fresh rosemary, leaves picked and chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
4 lamb leg steaks, visible fat removed
2 aubergines, sliced lengthways into 1cm-thick pieces
3 courgettes, sliced on the diagonal into 1cm-thick rounds
50g reduced-fat Greek-style salad cheese, crumbled
25g fresh mint, leaves roughly chopped, to serve
1 Preheat your oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6. Spray a large, non-stick frying pan with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a medium-high heat. Add the potatoes to the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes, or until browned. Transfer to a non-stick roasting tin, then scatter over the rosemary and garlic. Spray with low-calorie cooking spray and set aside.
2 Add the lamb to the frying pan and cook for 1 minute on each side. Transfer to a separate small, non-stick roasting tin. Roast the potatoes and lamb for 12 minutes.
3 Meanwhile, place a non-stick griddle or frying pan over a high heat until very hot. Spray the aubergine and courgette slices with low-calorie cooking spray, then cook in a single layer for 2-3 minutes on each side until browned, in batches if necessary.
4 Divide the lamb steaks, potatoes and vegetables between 4 plates. Top each with a quarter of the feta cheese and the mint leaves, and season to taste.

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.

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.
