Add the jalapeno, honey, vinegar, and mint to the lime. Process until it has the consistency of pesto.
Remove the lamb chops to a serving plate. Remove the thyme stems from the veggies and serve them either in a bowl or along side the lamb chops. Spoon the lamb chops with the spicy mint sauce over them as shown with the yummy roasted veg on the side!
