1. Garlicky Asparagus
When buying asparagus, look for firm, bright green spears with tightly closed tips. The size is up to you, though thin asparagus cooks more quickly. This simple side goes well with just about any main dish, especially lamb.
1. Snap off the tough ends of the asparagus where they naturally break.
2. In a large skillet, bring 1 inch of water to a boil. Add the asparagus, cover and cook until bright green and tender, about 3 minutes.
3. Drain the asparagus and return to the hot skillet. Add the oil, garlic, salt and pepper; toss to coat. Serve immediately.
2. Grilled Eggplant
Grilled eggplant is one of the best side dishes for lamb loin chops. It is also one of the easiest to prepare. The key to success is to use young, fresh eggplant. The flesh should be firm and the skin should be glossy. Make sure to cut the eggplant into thick slices, brush them with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Grill until tender and then drizzle with a bit more olive oil. Serve immediately.
Another great side dish for lamb loin chops is roasted vegetables. Roasting vegetables is a great way to bring out their natural sweetness. Choose a mix of vegetables such as broccoli, carrots, and parsnips. Cut them into even pieces and toss with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Spread them out in a single layer on a baking sheet and roast until tender. Serve immediately.
3. Roasted Carrots
Tender spring carrots roasted in a hot oven until caramelized and served with a zesty herb sauce.
Roasted Carrots with Herb Sauce
These caramelized roasted carrots are incredibly easy to make and make a lovely side dish for spring. The carrots are simply scrubbed and sliced into rounds, tossed with olive oil, salt, and pepper, and spread onto a baking sheet. They’re baked in a hot oven until they’re tender and caramelized around the edges.
While the carrots roast, you can quickly make the herb sauce on the stovetop by simmering fresh herbs, butter, and lemon juice until it’s thick and flavorful. The herb sauce is spooned over the carrots right before serving. I like to use a mix of soft herbs, such as parsley, chives, and dill, but you can use whatever fresh herbs you have on hand. The herb sauce is also delicious spooned over roasted chicken or fish.
4. Creamy Polenta
Bring the broth to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Whisking constantly, add the cornmeal in a slow, steady stream. Reduce the heat to medium and cook, stirring often, until the polenta is very thick and pulls away from the sides of the pan, about 15 minutes.
Remove from the heat and stir in the butter and Parmesan. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
5. Grilled Mushrooms
These grilled mushrooms are a fantastic side dish for lamb loin chops. They’re easy to make and full of flavor. The mushrooms are first marinated in a mixture of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and garlic. Then they’re grilled until they’re tender and juicy. The balsamic vinegar gives the mushrooms a nice, rich flavor, and the garlic adds a subtle kick. It’s a simple recipe, but it’s a great way to add a little something extra to your lamb.
