  • SERVES 4
  • PREPARATION TIME 20 minutes
  • COOKING TIME 10 minutes
  • For the lamb chops:
  • 8 lamb chops
  • 3 tsp ras el hanout (available in large supermarkets)
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Zest and juice 1 lemon
  • 1 sprig rosemary, finely chopped
  • ½ small pack mint, to garnish
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • For the cauliflower tabbouleh:
  • 1/2 cauliflower
  • 1/2 medium cucumber
  • 2 tbsp pistachios, shelled
  • 2 preserved lemons, chopped
  • 15g mint, roughly chopped
  • 20g flat-leaf parsley, roughly chopped
  • 20g coriander, roughly chopped
  • 1 lemon, juice only
  • 1 tsp pomegranate molasses
  • 1 tsp sumac
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  1. Put the lamb chops in a large bowl. Add the ras el hanout, garlic, oil, most of the lemon juice, rosemary and some seasoning. Toss everything together and set aside.
  2. While the lamb is marinating, make the tabbouleh. Grate the cauliflower and place into a medium-sized bowl. Chop the cucumber into quarters and add to the bowl. Crush the pistachios roughly with the back of a knife and add to the bowl. Then, add all the herbs and toss well. Onto the dressing. Mix the remaining ingredients, pour over the cauliflower mixture and toss again.
  3. Once the meat has marinated, heat a griddle or grill until very hot and cook the lamb chops for three to four mins each side, until cooked but still pink and juicy on the inside, then leave to rest for a few minutes.
  4. To serve, scoop the cauliflower rice into a large pan (something like a paella pan works well) and place the lamb chop chops on top.
