A delicious mix of spices - ground ginger, paprika, allspice (to name a few) - elevate this Slimming World aromatic lamb bake to flavour heaven!

Slimming World's aromatic lamb bake is one of those perfect recipes that requires very little effort - just bang it into the oven and get on with whatever else you were doing. Since lamb is so succulent, you can afford to use very lean (and healthier) pieces and it won't get dry at all - it will just become infused with all the flavours of your sauce. We recommend serving with couscous and courgette, but really you can serve with any carb and vegetable combination - so get creative!
