Ready in 45 minutes, Serves 2
- 380g pack Rosemary Potatoes
- 25g sourdough pavé bread
- 25g Greek Olives with Oregano, finely chopped
- 1 tbsp chopped fresh thyme leaves
- 1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 x 330g French-trimmed rack of lamb
- 1 tsp Dijon mustard
- 200g Boston beans or fine green beans
- Heat the oven to 200°C/400°F/gas 6 (180°C for fan ovens). Cook the potatoes according to the packet instructions.
- Put the bread in a food processor and pulse to form rough crumbs. Transfer the crumbs to a bowl and stir in the chopped olives, thyme and parsley, then season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
- Heat the oil in a frying pan and add the lamb. Cook over a high heat until browned all over, then transfer to a board. Remove any excess oil with kitchen paper.
- Spread the mustard over the lamb and press the crumb mixture on top. Put the lamb in a small roasting tin and roast for 25 minutes. Transfer to a board and leave to rest for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, cook the beans in boiling salted water for 3 minutes, until just tender.
- Divide the potatoes and beans between 2 plates, then slice the lamb into cutlets to serve.
