How to Make It
Heat oven to 450°F. In a medium pan, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Sauté shallots and garlic for 30 seconds. Add Basmati or Jasmine rice and stir for 1 minute. Pour in wine and cook, stirring frequently, until wine is absorbed. Add 2 cups of water, cover pan, and reduce heat to low. If preparing using Basmati Rice, simmer 20 minutes (or 15 minutes for Jasmine Rice ), or until all water is absorbed. Rub lamb chops with salt and pepper and remaining olive oil. Combine parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme. Press both sides of seasoned lamb chops with the herb mixture. Place chops on a foil-lined sheet pan and roast in the oven for 8 minutes, or until cooked to desired temperature. When rice is cooked, stir in bell pepper, olives, cheese, and mint. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. Arrange serving of rice on plate and top with two chops each.
