Cooking Time: 30 Minutes.
Total Time: 1 Hour.

INGREDIENTS:

2 tbsp coarse dry breadcrumbs, preferably whole-wheat
1-1/2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1 tsp chopped fresh rosemary, divided
3/4 tsp kosher salt, divided
1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper, divided
1 (1 1-1/2 lb) rack of lamb, (Frenched and trimmed) (See Tip*)
3 tsp Dijon mustard, divided
2 shallots, finely chopped
1 (15 oz) can lentils, rinsed, or 1-1/3 cups cooked lentils
1 Granny Smith, Jonathan, or
other tart cooking apple, finely chopped

2 celery ribs with leaves, finely chopped
3/4 cup low-sodium chicken broth, or water
2 tsp sherry vinegar, or cider vinegar

TIP*:
To serve 4 people, look for a rack of lamb that has 8 chops. If you can find one that’s been “Frenched”, (meat cut away at the tips, exposing the bone) and trimmed, you will only need a (1 lb) rack. Otherwise, look for a (1-1/2 lb) rack and ask your butcher to prepare it for you.
