Lamb is always a favorite especially around spring time when I feel lam is at its peak. Here is a recipe to highlight the meat to it potential Grilled Rump with Pistachio Crust.

Dont get worried, it might sound difficult to prepare, though once you read through the recipe you soon realise it is actually easy. Combining aromatics such as garlic, together with thyme and mint, which pairs with lamb well. Then encased in a crunchy pistachio and panko crumb crust, delicious.

Grilled Rump with Pistachio Crust is perfect for impressing that special love interest, or an important family or business meal.

Let’s Make a Difference

Every day we have the opportunity to make hundreds of choices. We are so fortunate to live in a time where information is so easily accessible and we have the opportunity and freedom to make choices that we feel are the best for us and our families.

I encourage you to continue educating yourself and others about the benefits of living a plant-based lifestyle. Cook a plant-based meal, opt out of products like leather, watch a documentary with a family member or friend. It’s easy to feel like the choices we make are small, but when we make these choices together, we can make a big difference!
