Grilled Lamb with Tomato Quinoa and Veggies

For the first time, I cooked with lamb. Bought a lovely pkg of lamb leg steaks, organic to boot! Med rare seems to work best here. Also for the first time, cooked the quinoa with some tomato juice (V8 was used) along with water. The flavour was richer and the grains became a bit more sticky, as the juice helped to carmelize a bit.

Lamb Leg steak, pan grill till med rare with sea salt and black pepper.

Quinoa cooked 1/2 water and 1/2 tomato juice for the liquid.

Panfried Broccoli & Cherry Tomato halves with minced Garlic, salt & fresh black pepper.
(saute garlic first to bring out aroma, then add tomatoes to get them heated through, then add broccoli to cook. Add a TBSP of water and put lid on to allow flash steam heat. Remove lid after a min, and cook another min or two... depending how cooked through you like your brocs.)
