When it comes to food, in addition to  flavour, health is something that should also be considered,  as it can have an  impact on our bodies in the long-term. Lots of healthy food ideas and recipes can be created using various cuts of lamb. Similarly, lots of greens can be incorporated  when cooking with lamb, whichever cuisine you choose to cook! 

The Major Ingredient - The Lamb! 

Lamb is a versatile ingredient and is loved by people from all cultures and walks of life. The numerous recipes that can be created by using different cuts of lamb make it a perfect ingredient for everyday meals or for special occasions.

Lamb Try it, Love it

The idea behind the EU funded Lamb Try it, Love it campaign is to encourage people to identify the unique flavours of lamb and to add more of it to their diet as part of a balanced diet. Lamb and okra curry can definitely be one of the best midweek meals for the entire family, especially because the premium lamb produced by the European farms using sustainable practices ensures a protein-rich diet. There is absolutely nothing like fresh lamb, and we should appreciate the contribution the farmers make to the local economies with all the hard work they do on their farms. 

Variety of Cuts of Lamb

Being quite a versatile ingredient, lamb can be used in various recipes, with curry being one of the most popular. Although lamb has various cuts which are used for different recipes, it is not necessary to use the premium cuts all the time. Even the economical cuts do justice to the curries and boneless lamb pieces are perfect, especially if one's cooking for a family meal. There are several other curries which can be conveniently cooked within 30 minutes for an affordable dish that is full of flavour!

Health Benefits of Lamb

High quality lamb produced by the European farmers is naturally rich in proteins and also contains several natural vitamins and minerals’ please refer to this blog post for the health benefits. If you haven't introduced lamb in to your everyday diet, give it a go. Once you try it, you're definitely going to love it!
