Our wonderful friend and neighbor Betsy turned us on to this wonderful lamb recipe from the Clean book. We ate it for a Sunday night dinner before starting the actual program, and everyone loved it. It was so flavorful! Any cut of lamb, a roast or chops can be used. It’s seared lamb with aromatic herbs and spices served with greens and a yummy quinoa salad. Super easy to make. Try it out and let us know what you think:). The recipes are found in Dr. Junger’s older and updated versions of the Clean. The Moroccan Lamb is on page 271 of the Updated Clean, and the Quinoa Salad is on page 260 of the original book.
Just in case you dont have the older version of the Clean book, here is the recipe for the Quinoa Salad

1/4 cup parsley
1/4 cup currents
1/4 cup chopped raw almonds
