Mint and lamb are made for each other! I found this in an Aussie magazine, and it looks pretty good to me.

Love your lamb recipes Jan and this was no exception. Unfortunately I had already planned to use the last fava beans from the garden so I didn't make your minted pea puree - that's for another time. The mixture for toping the lamb adds great flavor - definitely a do again recipe. This was made for our Thanksgiving dinner and I give thanks for choosing it
