Lamb cutlets can be high in saturated fat. That’s why we like to buy a ‘frenched’ rack of lamb – all the fat has been trimmed off and the bones scraped clean for a neat presentation.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
500g chat potatoes, halved
2 x 6 racks lamb, frenched
2 teaspoons olive oil
rosemary sprigs
4 field mushrooms, stalks trimmed
2 roma tomatoes, halved
1/4 cup honey
1 bunch asparagus, trimmed
green salad, to serve (optional)

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to moderate, 180ºC.
  2. Arrange the potatoes in a baking dish. Rub the lamb racks with olive oil and sprinkle with rosemary. Place them on top of the potatoes and roast for 20 minutes.
  3. Add the mushrooms and tomatoes to the baking dish and continue roasting for 5–10 minutes until the lamb is cooked to your liking.
  4. Remove the lamb racks from the oven, drizzle with honey and rest, covered with foil, for 10 minutes. Return the vegetables to the oven until ready to serve.
  5. Arrange the asparagus in a microwave-safe dish with a sprinkling of water. Cover with plastic wrap and cook on high (100%) power for 1–2 minutes until just tender.
  6. To serve, place a roast mushroom in the centre of each plate. Cut each lamb rack in half and arrange on top of the mushrooms. Serve with the roast potatoes and asparagus. If you like you can also serve with a green salad.

Variation

  • Sweet, smoky maple syrup makes a great change from honey if you have any in the fridge.

Super ingredient: Honey

  • Honey’s anti-bacterial properties have been well known for over 80 years and it is considered effective in the treatment for wounds, ulcers and burns. Being ‘natural’, honey is often considered a healthy sweetener. In fact, honey has fractionally less sugar than processed sugars, so use judiciously. It has tiny quantities of B vitamins and minerals like potassium and magnesium, and some phytochemicals and antioxidants.
