This is one of our most popular recipes from the spring section of The Greengrocer's Diet. Hard to believe that a dish with yummy olives, melted cheese and lamb could actually help people to lose weight.

300 grams lamb backstrap
3 zucchini halved and sliced lengthways
1 capsicum - red seeded and cut into strips
1 tsp` cumin seeds
1 handful mint, roughly chopped
10 olives deseeded and roughly chopped
60 grams mozzarella, grated

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Heat a seasoned grill pan or barbecue to hot.

Brush both sides of the lamb with ½ tbs of the olive oil and cook for 3 to 4 minutes on each side.

Meanwhile, place the zucchini, capsicum and cumin into a large bowl, season with cracked black pepper, drizzle with the lemon juice and remaining olive oil, and toss to coat the vegetables.

Remove the lamb from the grill and cover it loosely with aluminium foil to keep warm.

Cook the vegetables on the grill for approximately 4 minutes, then return them to the bowl.

Slice the lamb into strips and toss through to combine with the vegetables. Transfer the mixture to an ovenproof dish and sprinkle with the mint, olives and cheese.

Bake in the oven for approximately 5 minutes, or until the cheese melts. Serve hot.
