Quick Lamb and Veggie Lunch for One

Eating healthy can be really tough, especially when you’re a new mum. Losing the baby weight has been an uphill battle for me ever since I had my second kid.

This super simple lamb and veggie meal is one I used to eat (and enjoy) literally every day when I was in university. Back then I couldn’t afford lamb so it was roasted chicken most nights and on a good night, it was lamb or duck or even steak! I genuinely enjoy this meal very much and the possibilities of reinventing it are endless.  

It may seem plain and simple but trust me it is very delicious and super easy to make. Add a splash of lemon to the broccoli if you don’t like the taste of plain broccoli. To make it a little heartier, you can add some roast potatoes or even fries and maybe some gravy if you have.

I sometimes add some mange tout, green peas and sweetcorn to really turn it into a proper filling lamb and veggie meal! You can also just go for plain boiled potatoes with a little salt and pepper, you will be satisfied and feeling very proud of yourself for sticking to your diet!

Serves: 1


  • 1 Lamb steak
  • A handful of broccoli
  • A handful of cauliflower
  • 2 Tsp Vegetable Oil
  • Half a carrot (cut into bite sized pieces)
  • 4 pieces baby corn
  • 1 Magi cube (optional)
  • Salt & pepper to taste



Wash your meat and pat dry. Season with 1/2 a teaspoon of salt, 1/2 a teaspoon of pepper, 1 crushed magi cube and 1 tsp cooking oil


Cover your meat with cling film and marinate in the fridge for 10 to 15 minutes.


Wash and cut your vegetables into desired pieces. Put half a cup water in a small pot and bring to the boil. Once the water is boiling, add your washed carrots and baby corn, steam cook for about 3 minutes.


Add the broccoli and cauliflower and steam for a further 5 minutes. Add a little water if it dries up! Once your vegetables are ready, remove them and set aside.


Heat 1 tbsp oil in a non-stick pan on high heat until steaming hot, be careful here! (If you’re not confident with working with steaming hot oil then medium heat is perfectly fine).


Carefully add the lamb and fry on high heat until cooked through. Reduce the heat if it starts to burn. You’ll know your lamb is cooking well when the blood that is seeping out starts to turn brown


Once the lamb has fried to your desired level (I prefer very well done), remove from the heat and put on a plate. Serve with a little more salt and pepper and enjoy with your steamed vegetables!
