This recipe was created because on a recent shopping trip I was looking for some ground meat, and lamb was the only kind available! Now I'm a huge fan of lamb – if you are too then here are all my low carb lamb recipes!
When we lived in the UK, Greece was our go-to holiday destination for several years, and I still long to go back. I've used ground lamb to make my low carb moussaka, and also some delicious low carb Greek lamb burgers, but I wanted to make something lighter with spring just around the corner.
The finished dish is sort of like a burger bowl – Greek style!
How to Make a Greek Lamb Platter
Heat some olive oil in a large skillet and add the ground lamb. Once the meat is browned all over, drain any excess liquid. Season with garlic, dried oregano, salt and pepper.
While the lamb is cooking, cook the cauliflower rice using your preferred method. I often buy those steam-in-the-bag-packets that cook in the microwave. Super handy! Of course you can always make your own – check out my guide to making cauliflower rice!
When the cauliflower and lamb are ready, transfer them to a serving platter or large bowl. Sprinkle some crumbled feta cheese over the top, and add cucumber slices, black olives, and halved cherry tomatoes. A sprig of fresh mint or oregano makes a nice garnish!
Serve immediately. Hand out plates and some serving spoons, and let everyone dig in!
