I made my first paleo recipe last night — the delicious lamb & cumin burger with a size of sautéed zucchini and bok choy.

Last night I tried my first authentic paleo dish – meaning the I got the recipe from The Paleo Primer. I made  wonderful lamb burgers infused with cumin.  This is the first time I actually made a burger with ground lamb. Wow, I can’t believe I didn’t think of using ground lamb before this!  The burgers were so tender, tasty and filling.

Lamb & Cumin Burgers
Net Carbs: 2
Weight Watchers PointsPlus: 8
Servings: Makes 5 burgers

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground lamb
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 3 tbsp tomato paste
  • salt & pepper to taste

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 F
  • In a large bowl, combine the ground lamb, egg, garlic, cumin, tomato paste, salt and pepper.
  • Using clean hands, mix all the ingredients together and shape into 3-ounce patties (should make 5 burgers).
  • Place on a grill pan and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the internal temperature of the patties reaches 160 degrees.

I served this dish with sides of sautéed zucchini and bok choy. The whole meal took me less than 30 minutes to prepare. Before the lamb came out of the oven, I had enough time to clean, chop and cook the veggies.

So far, my paleo challenge is off to a great start!
