Lamb Chops With Herbed Yogurt over Couscous

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by nannie jo

Chopped mint, basil, and parsley brighten the yogurt sauce. I got this off another site for Middle Eastern recipes. It sounds good and easy so I thought I would post it for the World Tour 2-Middle Eastern

This a really lovely recipe. I loved the combination of the cool, herby yogurt on the hot lamb. I did think the couscous needed a bit of jazzing up though, so added some roasted wedges of red onion, chopped dried apricots, pine nuts and some more herbs
