SW recipe: Roast lamb with minty potatoes

Ready in 1 hour 10 minutes


1kg boned and rolled lean lamb leg joint, visible fat removed

Low-calorie cooking spray

800g new potatoes, halved or quartered

200g fat-free natural Greek yogurt

20g fresh mint, leaves finely chopped

500ml chicken stock

2 garlic cloves, peeled and bashed

200g runner beans, sliced

200g sweetheart cabbage, chopped

200g green beans, trimmed

Juice of 1 lemon


1 Preheat your oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6. Place the lamb on a non-stick baking tray and season. Spray with low-calorie cooking spray and roast for 50 minutes for pink, or 1 hour for well-done. Transfer to a board, cover loosely with foil and leave to rest.

2 While the lamb rests, boil the potatoes for 15-20 minutes until tender. Drain and leave to steam-dry for 1 minute. Mix together the yogurt and mint in a large bowl and season. Add the potatoes, stir to coat and set aside.

3 Put the stock and garlic in a wide saucepan, and bring to the boil. Bubble for 2-3 minutes to infuse the flavours, then add the green veg and simmer for 4-5 minutes until the veg is tender. Add lemon juice to taste, then drain, reserving the liquid. Slice the lamb and divide between 4 plates with the potatoes and veg. Add freshly ground black pepper to the lamb and drizzle over the stock to serve.

If you have any leftover lamb, leave to cool, then transfer to an airtight container, seal and chill for up to three days. Slice and fry in low-calorie cooking spray until piping hot to reheat.

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.
