Here is another edition of pomegranate glazed lamb chops with butternut squash. This time I have used asparagus.

I love the glossy shine the pomegranate glaze gives and the flavour goes really well with the lamb. Adding honey to the glaze makes it stickier and sweeter. Seasoning the lamb chops in honey and pomegranate sauce adds flavour too. In order to make the lamb chop tender, just cover the Pyrex dish over in aluminium foil.
Then you have the sweet butternut squash as a mash potato substitute which adds to the the dish and complements the sweet lamb. Then you have the nutty, savoury asparagus which goes with the dish really well due to its flavour and colour. This is a great weekend dish to have.
I would love to use this sauce for a slow roast lamb one day...watch this space.
