Spicy Lamb With Zucchini and Spicy Yogurt Sauce

“A really basic and savory recipe that makes good use of fresh summer zucchini. Lamb naturally tastes great with garlic and onion, while the zucchini and cayenne pepper add a fresh kick. The spicy yogurt is like a cool relief over top, and not too spicy to overwhelm.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Make the sauce a day ahead, or at the least, a few hours ahead to allow the flavors to properly meld together.
  2. Add all the ingredients for the sauce into a food processor and mix until well blended. If you don't have a food processor, just chop as finely as you can. Place in a sealed container in your refrigerator.
  3. In a large saucepan over medium heat, saute the zucchini and garlic in the olive oil.
  4. In a cast iron pan, cook the lamb with the onions until the lamb is brown and the onions are soft.
  5. Add the zucchini and garlic to the lamb, mix well.
  6. Serve with the Spicy Yogurt Sauce over top. You can also serve it on rice, if you like.
