Ingredients

  • .5 lb. ground lamb
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 12 oz. cauliflower rice or 1 head of cauliflower
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes sliced
  • 1/3 cup red onion diced
  • 1 cup cucumber sliced

for the tzatziki sauce:

  • 1/3 cup full fat coconut milk

  • 1 cup cucumber sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 3 mint leaves
  • 2 teaspoon fresh dill

Instructions

  • Add lamb to a large skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes. Then, add the garlic, thyme, oregano, salt, and pepper and stir to combine. Cook lamb on medium heat until no longer pink.
  • While the lamb is cooking, slice the tomatoes, onion and cucumber.
  • Next, make the tzatziki sauce by adding all ingredients to a blender and blending until smooth.
  • Last, cook the cauliflower rice either in the microwave or in a skillet with a dash of olive oil.

  • Enjoy!

Notes

*Calories are an estimation and are per serving. This is a high-protein meal, so don't be deterred by the calories! 
Prep ahead: cook the cauliflower rice and lamb and store them in a container in the refrigerator; then, slice the vegetables and store them in a separate container
Substitution: can use ANY cut of lamb! I typically go for ground because it's less expensive, but any kind will work
