A good daily dose of greens never hurt anyone. I don’t have a problem with taking in greens. I love spinach, Brussels sprouts, green cabbage, asparagus and I absolutely adore broccoli. Another favorite green of mine are green beans. They taste great combined with tomatoes and a meat. This time we chose to prepare green beens with lamb chops. And I have to admit, it is the very first time I made lamb chops. Easy peasy though. And we did it with a little twist (as in: red curry) that tasted too good to be true. It’s been a while since my last post, because I’ve been eating out a lot and because of busy work-schedules I’ve also been opting for quick and uninventive dinner options, so not much foodie stuff to write about the past couple of days. But back on track. So here we go.
You’ll need (serves two people, about 443 kcal pp)
- 200g green beans
- 1 onion
- 1 garlic clove
- 100g cherry tomatoes
- 3 sundried tomatoes
- 1 tomato
- A pinch of harissa
- coconut oil
- 400g lamb chops
- Red curry
- salt and pepper (to taste)
The BF made it with some potatoes on the side. I chose to stick with the greens and meat. If you want potatoes on the side, start by peeling and cooking them first.
Clean your green beans (cut of the ends and rinse them). Peel your onion and cut it in to small pieces. Pre heat a small pan with a tbsp of coconut oil. Add the onion and a mashed garlic clove. Now cut up one (or two) big tomato and cut the cherry tomatoes in halves. Add them with the onion once it starts to look glaze. Add some harissa too to spice things up. Cut up three sundried tomatoes in to small pieces and add them to the mixture. Stir regularly. Meanwhile cook or steam your green beans, they should be ready after 10 minutes. Add them to the tomatoes afterwards.
Coat, on one side, the lamb chops with some red curry. Or you can do both sides if you want. Add some salt and pepper to taste too. Pre heat a large skillet on a high heat with some coconut oil. Add the chops and bake them for a few minutes on each side.
And there you go. Healthy and easy dinner in just a few minutes. Whoever said eating healthy takes up a lot of time is a big fat liar! 😉
