Spicy Lamb And Carrot Salad
300g pounds good-quality coarsely ground lamb
1 teaspoon garam masala
A pinch of Sea salt
250g carrots, peeled
1/2 tablespoon sesame seeds
A small bunch fresh coriander, leaves picked
A small bunch fresh mint, leaves picked
& For the dressing:
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
1/2 small red onion, peeled
1/2 lemon, zested and juiced
1/2 heaped teaspoon freshly grated ginger
Grab a large frying pan and fry the ground lamb until all the fat comes running out of it.
Add the garam masala and a pinch of salt (if your diet it) and stir it about.Keep frying until the meat is crispy. Shave the carrots into long thin strips with a peeler and set them aside.
Heat a small frying pan over a moderate heat and toast the cumin seeds for 30 seconds.Put them into a pestle and mortar and grind them up. Put the pan back on the heat and roast the sesame seeds until golden. Transfer them to a plate.
Slice the onion in thin slices. If you don't feel confident about your knife skills, use the coarse side of a box grater instead.
To make your dressing, put the lemon zest and juice into a bowl and add the shallots or onion, grated ginger, ground cumin. Whisk everything together with about 3 tablespoons olive oil. Pour the dressing over the carrots, add the Coriander and mint leaves, and mix it all together.
Divide the lamb between 2 plates and put the dressed salad on top. Sprinkle with the toasted sesame seeds.
What is the Paleo Diet?
The Paleo diet (abbreviation for Paleolithic diet) is a diet which is inspired by the manner in which our ancestors ate. More specifically, it is inspired by our ancestors from the Paleolithic age (approximately 2,600,000 to 10,000 years ago).
Scientific research shows that the human genome has only evolved 0.01% in the most recent 10,000 years.
Our eating habits have however changed multiple times, now including many products that our 99.99% still Paleolithic genetic build-up was never supposed to eat! The basic assumption of the Paleo diet is that the by eating the foods that our body is supposed to eat, healthyness and quality of life increases.
