Lamb Chops with Sun-dried Tomato and Almond Pesto

Method

In a food processor, process the all the ingredients except the oil. Once a crumb-like texture forms, with the motor still going, slowly add the oil until it is all incorporated.

Season the lamb with salt, pepper and drizzle with olive oil. Heat a barbeque or a griddle pan on a medium heat and grill the lamb chops for 3 minutes on each side.

Serve chops with pesto and your favourite side dishes.
