Peppered lamb with kale and chickpeas

  1. In a medium bowl, combine 2 teaspoons of the oil, pepper, cumin and lamb. Toss to ensure the lamb is well coated.
  2. Heat remaining oil in a large non-stick frypan over a medium heat; add the garlic and red onion wedges. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add the kale and cook for a further 5 minutes or until the kale is soft and emerald green. Add the tomatoes and chickpeas, season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Toss to combine; reduce heat to low.
  3. Heat a grill plate over a high heat and cook the lamb backstraps for 3 minutes on each side or until cooked as desired. Remove to a warm plate and season with sea salt. Cover loosely with foil for a few minutes. Slice the lamb thinly across the grain and serve with the cooked kale. Drizzle with any of the remaining meat juices.
