Cubed Lamb in Mustard-BBQ Sauce

Gluten-free, lactose-free, FODMAP friendly

Yield: 2 servings

Drumsticks make excellent soup, since the big bones add superior flavor that the salt and vinegar draws out into the broth. Still, if you roast a whole chicken and have most of the carcass to work with, it can also give you a fine start on a pot of Old Faithful.

These vegetable quantities are approximate. Give it a nice balance of colors, and you’ll end up with eye appeal as well as balanced nutrients.
