Here is the recipe:
Lots of herbs in sauce. Not sure what veggie or salad to do so it complements. Probably have low-carb diners so potatoes, risotto, etc. not an option. Thanks
How's about roasted cauliflower? There is a nice recipe with almonds that would go well with the lamb here:http://food52.com/recipes... or there is also a recipe for Za'atar roasted cauliflower on Food 52 that would go well too. Pair that with a simple green salad, Bibb lettuce perhaps and a lemon vinaigrette. Simple, light and delicious!
Butternut squash cubes, roasted in either olive oil or coconut oil; shredded cabbage salad with a lemon-garlic dressing; roasted carrots with a pomegranate syrup glaze; butter lettuce with thinly sliced radishes; or a lettuce-citrus salad with pink grapefruit, onion slices, and butter lettuce.
I would serve lightly buttered peas.
Thanks- all great ideas!!
since there's so much flavor going on with the Chimichurri, I'd keep the vegetable very simple. Roasted Cauliflower would be good (and substantial while not carby). For a salad, in this not quite prime-time salad season, I'm liking a mixture of romaine and arugula with pink grapefruit and avocado. use the grapefruit juice as the acid for you salad dressing, and maybe avocado oil instead of extra virgin.
A rice pilaf (not that high carb since it's only a side dish). Sautee onions or shallots until golden, then add diced tomatoes until heated through, mix with rice.
Turnip or rutabaga, cut in wedges and roasted with olive oil & salt are surprisingly sweet, delicious & simple. go well with lamb & will absorb but not fight the multi herb chimichurri.
This carrot puree: http://www.foodandwine... (very simple to prepare and has received rave reviews when I've served it to people), and a simple green salad with a nice acidic vinaigrette.
