Traditional rack of lamb dishes are high in fat. This made-over recipe trims the excess calories by trimming off the meat fat, reducing the oil, and omitting the wine. The roasted fruit and onion add nutrition and an inviting flavor.
| Recipe Makeover|
2 racks of lamb, French trimmed, lean
1 1/2 Tbsp honey
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 pinch each of sea salt and cracked black pepper
3 golden delicious apples, skin on, cored and cut into thick wedges
2 onions, skin on, cut into thick wedges
3 whole garlic cloves
4 rosemary sprigs
8 large sage leaves
| Traditional Recipe|
2 racks of lamb (4 lbs), 1/4-inch fat on
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup red wine
2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1 pinch each of salt and black pepper
1 1/2 Tbsp garlic
2 Tbsp rosemary
2 Tbsp thyme
2 Tbsp parsley
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
Preheat oven to 375ºF.
Place the rack of lamb in a baking dish lined with non-stick baking paper. Bake for 25 minutes.
While the lamb is cooking, combine the honey, olive oil, salt, and pepper in a small saucepan and warm over low heat, stirring until combined. Remove from heat.
Place the apples, onions and garlic in a bowl and toss with the warm honey mixture. Remove lamb from the oven; leave oven on. Scatter the apples, onions and garlic around the lamb, sprinkling with rosemary and sage.
Brush meat with any remaining honey mixture. Bake for a further 20 to 25 minutes or until apples and onions are golden and meat is cooked to your liking.
