Total Time           20 min

Serves                4


  • 2 sprigs Cooks’ Ingredients rosemary
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and chopped
  • 350g lamb loin fillet, trimmed of excess fat, if needed
  • 400g frozen garden peas
  • 400g can essential Waitrose cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 tbsp. Waitrose half-fat crème fraîche
  • 200g ready to micro-steam tender stem broccoli, butternut, and carrot


  • Strip the leaves from the rosemary sprigs and place in a pestle and mortar with the chilli. Pound together until well bruised. Rub the mixture over the lamb and set aside for 5 minutes.


  • Cook the lamb under a hot grill for 8 minutes, turning once or twice until well-browned but still a little pink in the centre. Transfer to a plate and set aside to rest.


  • Meanwhile, cook the peas and beans in a pan of boiling water for 4 minutes until piping hot. Drain well, then return to the pan. Add the crème fraiche, then using a hand-held blender, whizz until smooth. Season to taste. Cook the broccoli, butternut and carrot according to pack instructions.


  • Carve the lamb into thick slices. Spoon the pea and bean purée and steamed vegetables onto plates and top with the lamb.
