Roast Leg Of Lamb
With Parsnips And Tomatoes.
1 rack of lamb, about 500 grams (1 pound)
4 cloves garlic, crushed
2 tablespoons olive oi
Post contentRub a little olive oil over all the lamb and season both sides of the rack with salt and pepper. Place the lamb into a shallow roasting dish and sprinkle the crushed garlic over the outside of the rack. At the same time as adding the tomatoes to the parsnips, place the rack in the same oven and roast for 20 minutes at the same 200°C (390°F). This should color the skin lightly, and then remove from the oven.
Rest the meat for 10-15 minutes in a warm place, covered with foil, then slice into chops.
Serve with the parsnips and tomatoes, and pour any juices from the pan and resting plate over the chops.
Parsnips and tomatoes.
4 large parsnips
50 grams (1.8 ounces) unsalted butter
3 sprigs of thyme
1 tablespoon honey
Prepare and start cooking the vegetables first.
Peel the parsnips and remove the tops. Slice each in half lengthwise or quarters if they are really big, and place in a roasting dish with the butter. Season with salt and pepper and roast at 200°C (390°F) for 25-30 minutes until the parsnips are golden.
Remove the cores from the tomatoes and cut them in half.
Remove the leaves from the thyme sprigs and sprinkle on top of the tomatoes, drizzle with the honey, season with salt and pepper and add to the roasting pan.
Continue to cook for 20 minutes, until the tomatoes are soft and the parsnips are sticky and golden.
