HOW TO MAKE LAMB CUTLETS WITH BROAD BEAN PURÉE AND POTATOES

Ingredients

  • zest and juice 2 lemons
  • 3tbsp fresh oregano, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 3½tbsp olive oil
  • ¾tsp dried red chilli flakes
  • 8 lamb cutlets, trimmed
  • 400g (14oz) baby potatoes, halved if large
  • for the broad bean purée
  • 500g (1lb 2oz) broad beans, shelled
  • 1tbsp tahini paste
  • good squeeze lemon juice
  • 3tbsp olive oil

Method

  • In a large bowl, mix the lemon zest with the oregano, garlic, 1½tbsp of the oil, chilli and seasoning, add the lamb and mix to coat. Leave to marinate for 20 minutes or overnight. Meanwhile, bring a pan of water to the boil and cook the potatoes for 6 or 7 minutes, until tender but holding their shape. Drain well and leave to dry.

  • For the purée, in a food processor, blend the broad beans, tahini, lemon juice and oil until fairly smooth. Season and set aside.

  • Heat a heavy-based frying pan over a medium heat, add the remaining oil then the potatoes and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden, turning occasionally.

  • If you’re not cooking on the barbecue, heat the grill until hot and cook the cutlets for around 5 minutes on each side. You want them really browned and crispy. They will take a little less time on the barbecue. Squeeze over some lemon juice and a sprinkle of sea salt, to serve, alongside the purée.

Top Tip

The broad bean purée will keep for 3 days, covered in the fridge.
