Lamb mince, which is made from ground lamb meat, can provide several health benefits. It's a good source of protein, which is essential for building and repairing tissue in the body. In addition, lamb mince is rich in essential nutrients such as iron, zinc, and vitamin B12. Iron plays a crucial role in the production of haemoglobin, which is the protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen throughout the body.

Lamb mince is a versatile meat that can be used in a variety of healthy recipes. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Greek lamb meatballs: Mix lamb mince with garlic, onion, parsley, and breadcrumbs. Form into meatballs and bake in the oven. Serve with a side of Greek salad for a healthy and delicious meal.
  • Spicy lamb lettuce wraps: Cook lamb mince with chilli powder, cumin, and paprika. Serve in lettuce cups with chopped tomatoes, avocado, and a dollop of 99% fat-free Greek yoghurt.
  • Lamb and vegetable stir fry: Brown lamb mince in a wok or frying pan with ginger, garlic, and soy sauce. Add in your favourite vegetables such as broccoli, capsicum, and zucchini. Serve over brown rice for a healthy and filling meal.
  • Mediterranean lamb skewers: Shape lamb mince onto skewers with cherry tomatoes, red onion, and capsicums. Grill until cooked through and serve with a side of hummus and pita bread.
