  • 200g lean lamb leg steak, visible fat removed
  • 1 courgette, diced
  • 1 red and 1 yellow pepper, deseeded and cut into small pieces
  • 1 red onion, cut into 6 wedges
  • Low calorie cooking spray
  • 150g dried couscous
  • Small handful of finely chopped fresh mint

For the marinade:

  • 3tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1tsp ground cumin
  • 1tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2tbsp tomato purée
  • 4tbsp passata

This recipe would work just as well with lean pork or beef


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/Fan 180°C/Gas 6.
  2. Put all the marinade ingredients in a large bowl and mix together.
  3. Add the lamb, courgette, peppers and red onion to the marinade and stir to coat well. Tip everything into a roasting tin, spray with low calorie cooking spray and roast for 25 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, put the couscous in a heatproof bowl and pour over enough boiling water to just cover. Set aside, covered, for about 10 minutes or until the water is absorbed and the grains are tender. Run a fork through the couscous to fluff up the grains.
  5. Set the lamb aside to rest for 10 minutes then roughly chop and fold into the couscous with the roasted vegetables.
  6. Scatter over the mint.
  7. Eat some straight away or cool and keep in the fridge for up to 2 days. This salad is great eaten cold or thoroughly reheated in a microwave.
