Cast your mind back to the Herb Roasted Leg of Lamb recipe I shared a few weeks ago. That dish in itself was yummy, but we had lots of lamb leftovers, which I decided to turn into this Lamb + Chilli Stir Fry the next day for lunch.
I combined the leftover lamb with chopped mushrooms, garlic, fresh chilli and fresh baby spinach leaves to make a delicious paleo meal. Since the original roast had almonds and walnuts in it, I tossed a few extra in the pan for added crunch. I haven’t given quantities for this recipe as it really was a make it up as I went along dish. Adjust the ingredient amounts to your personal taste.
