Sometimes you won’t be cooking for other people, you’ll be cooking for yourself instead; and even if you are, you might still want to have a filling and delicious meal – whilst you curl up on the sofa and watch “Game of Thrones” re-runs. There’s no shame in that!! Well, if you ever have one of those days; try this scrumptious Lamb with roasted vegetables. I know you’re going to love it, you can thank me later. Enjoy!!
Prep 10 mins | Cooking 1 hour
Serves: 1 (double the ingredients to serve 2)
- 1 small Carrot
- 1 small Onion
- 75g Parsnips
- ½ a Courgette
- 100g Sweet Potato, peeled and chopped into chunks
- 150ml vegetable stock
- 150g lamb leg steak
- Salt & Pepper
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp paprika
- Cooking oil
Preheat the oven to 180 – 200 degrees C
Season your lamb, with salt, pepper, garlic and paprika, and mix well; then set it aside.
Place all of the vegetables into an oven tin so that they do not sit on top of each other. Season with some salt and pepper; add about 2 tbsps of cooking oil over the veggies and roast for 30 minutes, stirring half way through. Remove the tin from the oven and pour the vegetable stock over the veggies.
Place your seasoned lamb over the top of the veggies and put them back into the oven, to cook for a further 20 -30 minutes.
Serve with a side of roasted potatoes. You can also replace the lamb with chicken, beef or pork.
