Ready In:




  • Preheat the oven to 180 C or 250 degrees F.
  • Cut the potatoes into 1cm slices and place in a large roasting tray along with half the olive oil, salt and pepper.
  • Mix until well coated and roast for 20 minutes.
  • Add the garlic and thyme, tossing again to coat and bake for another 8-10 minutes or until the potatoes are both crisp and tender.
  • Take the potatoes out and keep warm in a separate dish.
  • Meanwhile, heat another roasting tin on the stove.
  • Season the lamb and then add the remaining olive oil to the pan.
  • When the oil is hot, sear the lamb on each side for a minute or so until it starts to brown.
  • Transfer to the oven for 10-12 minutes until just tender but still with a touch of pink in the middle.
  • Take out of the oven and leave to rest in a warm place.
  • Add the zucchini and tomatoes to the roasting tin that had the potatoes in it and bake for 10 minutes, turning the veggies occasionally.
  • Place the potatoes on warmed plates.
  • Spoon over the cooked veggeies.
  • Carve the lamb, place on top and drizzle over the meat and veggie juices as a gravy.

This is a picture of me and my husband in Portugal, climbing up above the clouds with our bikes. Right now we are travelling around the world on our bicycles, so I only pop onto Zaar occasionally, when internet connections and time allow me to. If I don't reply to a message about one of my recipes, now you know why! Our trip may take several years so if it's urgent, it's probably better for you to post in the forums ;) Good food is really important to me -- I am happy to pay extra for food that I feel is produced in a sustainable and ethical way and always try to eat using seasonal produce. When we were in the UK we rarely shopped at supermarkets, trying instead to favour small producers, although we were very lucky in that we lived in London and there was lots of choice. We also were fortunate enough to have a weekly organic veg box delivered to our door, filled with so many lovely vegetables for very little money. It really opened my horizons in terms of the variety of vegetables I eat. If you're in the UK, check out Riverford for a box supplier as they're amazing! When I'm not eating I love to take pictures and travel with my husband. <img src="">
