Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 4 servings



  • 8 lamb chops cubed
  • 4 Roma tomatoes cut into thirds
  • 1 cup green olives pitted
  • 1 14 oz. can artichoke hearts drained
  • bamboo skewers


  • 1/3 cup red wine
  • 4 cloves garlic peeled
  • 1 shallot peeled and chopped
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika


  • DO-AHEAD TIP: Marinate lamb cubes overnight or for at least 4 hours (see recipe). Presoak bamboo skewers in water for 30 minutes, to prevent burning on the grill.
  • Place lamb cubes in a large zipper-topped plastic bag. Prepare marinade: In a blender or food processor, place marinade ingredients; blend until smooth then pour mixture over lamb cubes. Seal the bag and turn to coat; refrigerate overnight or for at least 4 hours.
  • At time of cooking, preheat grill to MEDIUM-HIGH. Alternately thread lamb cubes, tomatoes, olives and artichoke hearts onto prepared skewers; grill kabobs for 5 to 8 minutes per side or until cooked to desired level of doneness.


SERVING SUGGESTION: Serve kabobs over Cauli-Rice (process cauliflower in a blender or food processor until it resembles grains of rice; steam “rice” till tender; drain; salt and pepper to taste and fluff with a fork). Add a salad of mixed baby greens, sliced red onion, avocado and cucumber, tossed with Leanne’s Basic Vinaigrette.
