Roast lamb with veg & mint sauce

Serves 4

Prep Time 15 min

Cooking Time 1 hr 5 min


  • 500g small boneless leg of lamb, trimmed
  • 3 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 2 fresh rosemary sprigs, chopped
  • Cooking oil spray
  • 4 potatoes, cut into large chunks
  • 400g butternut squash, peeled and chopped
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 320g sugar snap peas, steamed, to serve
  • For the mint sauce
  • 125ml cider vinegar
  • 50g caster sugar
  • 25g fresh mint leaves, finely chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6.
  2. Using the point of a sharp knife, make small deep cuts over the lamb, then push a slice of garlic and some rosemary into each slit. Spray with a little oil, then put the lamb on a rack in a roasting dish and cook on the middle oven shelf for 50 min for medium, or until cooked to your liking.
  3. Ater 5 min of the lamb cooking time, put the potatoes, squash and carrots into another roasting dish. Spray with a little oil, then cook on the bottom shelf for 1 hr or until crisp and golden.
  4. Meanwhile, make the mint sauce: put the vinegar and sugar in a small pan. Stir over a medium heat until the sugar dissolves and the mixture comes to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 8 min or until it thickens slightly. Remove from the heat, stir in the mint, then pour into a jug and leave to cool.
  5. Lift the cooked lamb on to a carving board and cover with foil. Rest for 15 min, then slice and divide among 4 plates. Serve with the roasted veg and the sugar snap peas, drizzled with the mint sauce.
