Recipe Ingredients

  • half leg of lamb about 1.2kg
  • 4 cloves ofgarlic, cut into slivers
  • Several sprigs of rosemary cut into pieces
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and Black Pepper
  • 3 large peppers (red, yellow and orange) deseeded and cut in
  • 3 large courgettes cut into large chunks
  • 750g small new potatoes, unpeeled
  • 225g cherry tomatoes

Recipe Instructions

Pre heat the oven to 190˚c/375˚f/Gas 5. Make several incisions in the top of the lamb with a sharp knife and push in two thirds of the garlic and rosemary. Drizzle with 1 tbsp olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

Meanwhile, place the peppers, courgettes and potatoes in a large roasting tin and season with salt and pepper. Stir in the remaining garlic and rosemary and oil, set to one side.

Put the lamb on a rack in another roasting tin and roast in the oven for 40 minutes.

Place the marinated vegetables in the oven on the shelf below the lamb, and turn the meat over. Roast for 30 minutes, then add the tomatoes to the vegetables. Roast for another 10 minutes or until the lamb is cooked.

Remove the lamb from the oven, cover with foil and leave to rest whilst the vegetables remain in the oven. Cook the vegetables for a further 10 minutes, turning once.

Serve the lamb with the vegetables.
