  1. Lamb: Preheat the grill until hot.
  2. Basil Pesto: Place basil leaves, garlic, pine nuts and oil in a small food processor and process to a rough paste. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper and then stir through the Parmesan cheese. Place in a small bowl, cover well and refrigerate.
  3. Quinoa Crust: Place all ingredients except milk in a bowl and mix. Pour in enough milk to just moisten. Press crust on to one side of each lamb cutlet, place on an oiled grilling tray, crust side down. Place under hot grill for 2 minutes. Remove from grill, turn cutlets over, drizzle with a dash of oil and return to the grill for a further 3-4 minutes.
  4. To serve: Serve lamb cutlets with basil pesto and a fresh summer salad or barbecued summer vegetables.
