Prep Time: 0 min.

Total Time: 40 min.

Serves: 4

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons coarse dry breadcrumbs, preferably whole-wheat

1 1/2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary, divided

3/4 teaspoon khoser salt, divided

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, divided

1 1 1/2-pound rack of lamb, Frenched and trimmed

3 teaspoons Dijon mustard, divided

2 shallots, finely chopped

1 15-ounce can lentils, rinsed, or 1 1/3 cups cooked lentils

1 Granny Smith apple, finely chopped

2 stalks celery with leaves, finely chopped

3/4 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth or water

2 teaspoons sherry vinegar or cider vingear

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 450°F.

2. Mix breadcrumbs, 1/2 teaspoon oil, 1/2 teaspoon rosemary, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper in a small bowl.

3. Heat the remaining 1 teaspoon oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add lamb, meat-side down, and sear until browned, about 1 1/2 minutes. Turn it over and spread 2 teaspoons mustard over the meat. Sprinkle the breadcrumb mixture over the mustard. Transfer the lamb to the oven and roast until a thermometer inserted in the center registers 140°F for medium-rare, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer to a plate and tent with foil to keep warm.

4. Return the pan to medium-high heat (be careful: the handle will still be hot). Add shallots, the remaining 1/2 teaspoon rosemary, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper and cook, stirring constantly, until starting to soften, about 1 minute. Stir in lentils, apple, celery, broth (or water), vinegar and the remaining 1 teaspoon mustard; bring to a lively simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the liquid is slightly reduced and the celery and apple are starting to soften, about 4 minutes. Cut the lamb into 8 chops and serve over the lentils.
