Mint Lamb and Broccoli Mash

Prep time: 20 minutes

Cook time: 10 minutes

Serves: 2

Ingredients:

  • 4 lamb chops

  • 1 whole broccoli – cut into florets with the stalks finely chopped

  • 120g peas (defrosted)

  • 60g fresh mint

  • 3 tbsp. of red wine vinegar

  • 2 tbsp. raisins

  • Pinch of salt

  • 1 tsp of mustard 

  • 1 tbsp. butter

 

Method:

  1. Add half the mint, vinegar, mustard, pinch of salt, raisins in a blender and blitz until smooth – set to one side. This is your homemade mint sauce. 

  2. Over a medium high heat, warm a heavy frying pan, place the lamb chops in the pan and heat either side until brown – I cook both sides for 5-6 minutes for a medium-cooked chop. 

  3. Once you have placed the chops in the pan, steam the broccoli for 6 minutes and then add the peas for the final minute. 

  4. Put the broccoli, peas, butter, pinch of salt and remainder of mint (30g) into a blender and blitz. 

  5. Plate and enjoy.
