Herb-crusted Roast Lamb with seasonal vegetables

Warming with a kick, this deliciously herby recipe puts a tasty twist on a typical roast meal.

Ingredients • Lamb rack

  • 1 lamb rack
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp fresh thyme, chopped
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
  • 2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  • 2 courgettes, sliced
  • 4 potatoes, quartered
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • Other seasonal vegetables of your choice
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 200°C. Season the lamb rack with salt and pepper. In a hot pan, sear the lamb until well browned.
  • Mix the minced garlic, chopped rosemary, chopped thyme, breadcrumbs, and olive oil in a bowl to form a herb crust. Brush the lamb rack with Dijon mustard, then press the herb mixture onto the lamb rack, ensuring it sticks well.
  • Place the lamb rack in a roasting pan. Roast in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes for medium-rare, or adjust the time according to your preferred level of doneness. Let the lamb rest for about 10 minutes before slicing.
  • While the lamb is roasting, place the courgettes, potatoes, and cherry tomatoes in a large mixing bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat evenly.
  • Spread the vegetables on a baking sheet in a single layer. Roast in the oven for about 25-30 minutes, turning occasionally, until the vegetables are tender and golden brown.
  • Enjoy with mint sauce and/or your favourite gravy. Garnish with fresh herbs if desired.
