This is my first recipe posted! I found it in Prevention Magazine and now fix it, with modifications, once a week for my lamb-loving, diet-conscious husband. This meets my definition of a great recipe - tasty, easy, healthy, and a complete meal. Prep time does not include fixing the whole grain of your choice, but depending on the grain, you can start it when you put the meat in to brown and it will be done when the recipe is. Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb ground lamb (or other lean ground meat of your choice)
  • 1 onion, chopped (optional, if short on time, use chopped frozen onions)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced (optional, use more or less or garlic power, according to taste)
  • 5 teaspoons curry powder (use high quality, such as Madras)
