INGREDIENTS 8
SERVINGS 4

Ingredients


600g lamb loins (see note)
olive oil cooking spray
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 cup reduced-salt chicken stock
500g packet frozen mint peas
2 tablespoons mint
80g reduced-fat feta cheese, crumbled

Method


Spray lamb lightly with oil. Season with salt and pepper.

Heat a chargrill or frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook lamb for 2 to 3 minutes each side for medium, or until cooked to your liking. Remove to a plate. Cover with foil. Set aside for 5 minutes to rest.

Heat a saucepan over medium heat. Spray with oil. Add onion and garlic. Cook for 2 minutes, or until light golden. Add stock and peas. Bring to the boil. Cover and simmer for 4 minutes, or until peas are tender. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup of stock.

Roughly chop half the mint. Combine peas, reserved stock, chopped mint, and salt and pepper in a bowl. Roughly mash using a potato masher. Slice lamb across the grain. Arrange lamb and pea mash on plates. Top with feta and remaining mint leaves. Serve.

Notes


Note: Lamb fillet or backstrap are suitable alternatives to lamb loins. Hint: This dish is also delicious served with oven-roasted cherry tomatoes.
