Lamb Cabbage Stir Fry

This was a winner from Nom Nom Paleo. I added a little soy sauce since A) it was stir fry and b) I am not Paleo. We served this with cauliflower rice.

Cooking Light Upside Down Shepherd’s Pie

This was quite delicious! My sister made it first and recommended the recipe. I wouldn’t use instant potatoes if I made this again – I couldn’t find the type the recipe wanted, and I really don’t mind making my own (would probably do half potatoes half cauliflower).

Cumin Lamb Meatballs

These were good! We decided we wouldn’t choose to have them over regular cumin lamb, but still liked them.

Spicy Lamb Stir Fry with Bok Choy and Broccoli

I love it when use-up-the-CSA recipes turn out well. For this one, my idea was to make sort of a “ma-la” Schezuan sauce and pair it with a half package of leftover ground lamb and all the green vegetables I could find.

Recipe Variations: Greek Meatballs with Spaghetti Squash

Yes, we had meatballs twice this weekend. I’m not sorry.

Readers know I struggle with spaghetti squash. I have to say, this is about the most┬áI’ve liked it. Add lamb to anything, I guess, and I’m at least a little happy.

All I did was halve a spaghetti squash, and roast it for about 45 minutes at 400 degrees (brushed with olive oil and seasoned with salt and pepper). While that was happening, I made a batch of these meatballs (I used half lamb sausage, half ground lamb, and already had the sauce made in the freezer from last time).

Once the squash was cooked, I let it cool 10 minutes. Then I fluffed the squash so it was in spaghetti strands, but still in the squash boat itself. I mixed each half of the squash with half of the sauce, then topped them with meatballs, and some additional crumbled feta (I had a few meatballs left over). Good stuff. Makes about five servings, especially if you use the extra meatballs.

Stuffed Portabellos with Ricotta and Lamb Sausage

I love it when dishes I make up turn out well.

This doesn’t look pretty, but it tasted terrific. I got the idea when watching someone on Food Network make calzones. My thought process: “I could go for a calzone. Not exactly low-carb. Hmm.” I used homemade ricotta for this; I think that plus the excellent lamb sausage really made a difference here (we also had really nice mushrooms from the market).

We served this with broccoli rabe and some strawberries tossed with basil, a pinch of sugar and white balsamic vinegar.

Greek-Style Lamb Meatballs

We just loved these lamb meatballs from Smitten Kitchen. Easy, delicious and not terribly time consuming. They also were a good low-carb option because there wasn’t so much sauce that you felt the absence of pasta. I served this with a chopped Greek salad (recipe to follow).

Note: the recipe is for two pounds of lamb meat. I only had one, so I halved the meatball recipe and saved half of the sauce for another time.
