Lamb chops with smoky aubergine (egg-plant) salad


This is a great low carb recipe, just four carbs per serving. Aubergine is of course, many a low carbers favourite, and Aubergines (egg-plants) are an excellent source of dietary fibre. They are also a good source of Vitamins B1 and B6 and potassium. In addition it is high in the minerals copper, magnesium and manganese... can't be bad ! 

Ingredients
Serves Two
1 aubergine, thinly sliced lengthways
3 tbsp. olive oil
4 lamb cutlets or chops, (trimmed of fat - optional)
squeeze lemon juice
pinch paprika
2 tsp chopped dill
1 tbsp. toasted pine nut
Method
1. Heat a large frying or griddle pan over a high heat. Brush the aubergine slices with oil. Season, then fry until browned on both sides, about 8-10 mins. Remove from heat, then tear or chop into small pieces. Season with salt and pepper.
2. Griddle chops for 4 mins on each side for pink. To make the dressing, combine lemon juice, paprika and half the dill in a bowl.
3. Drizzle dressing over aubergine and toss. Divide between two plates and put chops on top, then scatter with pine nuts and the rest of the dill.
4. Serve with salad (and pitta bread - optional - will increase carb count)

Eggplant is an amazing veggie. We recently went to a vegan restaurant and my sandwich had eggplant "bacon" on it. So unique and delicious!

Sounds delicious. Unfortunately I have become allergic to eggplant. I used to love it. Now, it takes my breath away. Sigh..... Loved the music.

Looks yummy and I used to love lamb chops. Haven't had them in years. They are so expensive here.

Ooh, that eggplant salad looks luscious.
Have a great one.

Looks good, but I gotta tell you; I was on a diet way back in the stone age that called for lamb chops. My mom said 'you're not gonna like that'. Well, she was right. :)

Love eggplant though!

Lamb, in any form, is my favorite. Though - I do think eggplant is just strange.
