Fun Health Facts

Lamb is highly nutritious and contains large amounts of heme-iron. This important nutrient decreases iron-deficiency anemia risk, as well as aids in digestion and absorption.

Onions are rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties that are believed to lower inflammation, reduce cholesterol levels and protect against blood clots.

Coconuts are also highly nutritious. They contain essential vitamins and minerals responsible for bone health, red blood cell formation and lowering oxidative stress.

 Tips & Tricks

  • When lamb meat is undercooked you will end up with a chewy, rubbery texture! If at the end of the cooking time you are experiencing this, let it cook for longer.

  • Make sure to use coconut milk that is free of binders or other chemicals for the best taste.

  • Not into lamb meat? No problem. Sub your favorite stew meat here instead (I recommend pork or beef.)
