Only 5g net carbs per portion

I have added cumin as well as mint to the recipe as I think cumin compliments lamb; however you can really add whatever herbs and spices suit your own palate. 

After cooking on the grill, I served with a minty yoghurt. This is simply Plain Greek yoghurt mixed with mint sauce (for convenience) and seasoned with salt and pepper as required. On the plate I added grilled butternut squash and fresh rocket salad.
