Be transported to a little Cypriot village with this fresh, vibrant and summery dish. Simple to cook, simple flavours, but equally intense and packed for of nutritious notes. It’s the kinda meal that just feels healthy to eat, for you body and psyche. Lamb Steaks gently seared in a pan are just delicious, especially the cooked through and lightly crisped healthy fat. Combine with a fresh greek salad (minus the olives), some hummus and a little rice. Perfect al fresco dinner – sign me up! 😋.
For a smaller portion, drop to two Lamb Steaks, half the Rice and Butter, and reduce the Hummus to 40g. This would save you 371 calories, without compromising on the flavours or nutritional goodness whatsoever.

- Lamb (mostly grass-fed), lamb is an excellent source of complete proteins and packed-full of vital nutrients like iron and selenium, as well as immune boosting high concentrations of zinc, vitamin B12, and other B vitamins. Lamb does contain fat, but a significant portion of that fat is anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids.
- White Rice is pretty empty when it comes to nutrients to be honest, but it is so much better than choosing Brown Rice as the harmful Lectins (such as Gluten) in the wholegrain have mostly been removed. Great for getting in easily digested carbs and calories.
- Grass-Fed Butter is a great source of healthy-fats that promote optimal health and hormone production. Furthermore, Butter contains only trace amounts of lactose.
- Feta Cheese is made with sheep or goats milk. Goats do not contain a certain mutation in the milk that most cows do, making their milk and cheese much more digestion friendly and look uncannily similar at a DNA level to human milk. Feta is comparably lower in calories that other cheeses, in part because of the lower fat content.
- Chickpeas (within hummus) provide you with protein and fibre, and are high in iron, folate, phosphorus and B vitamins.
- Tomatoes are the major dietary source of the antioxidant lycopene, which has been linked to many health benefits, including reduced risk of heart disease and cancer. They are also a great source of vitamin C, potassium, folate and vitamin K. However, due to the lectins present in their seeds and skin, some inflammatory response and sensitivities can occur with digesting tomatoes. Cooking and High pressure cooking, as well as removing the seeds can eliminate the lectins and make them more digestible.
