A quick and easy summer dish

27 June 2013

Although summer can be a busy time of year we’d still like to encourage you to make time for a homemade, healthy supper. This recipe is perfect, especially if you’re feeling a little hot and lazy as it will be ready and on the garden table in no time!

Warm lentil and seared rosemary lamb salad – serves 4


You will need:

  • 200g puy lentils
  • 500ml chicken stock
  • 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 tbsp cider vinegar
  • 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 lamb leg steaks
  • 1 tbsp oil oil
  • 100g baby spinach leaves
  • 1 red chilli, de-seeded and finely chopped
  • 150g feta, cubed
  • 2 tbsp fresh chopped parsley

To Make:

  • Rinse the lentils in water then drain. Heat the chicken stock in a saucepan with one of the sprigs of rosemary until boiling. Add the lentils, reduce the heat, then simmer for 20-25 minutes until tender. Drain, then tip into a wide bowl to cool.
  • Mix the garlic and vinegar with a little salt and pepper and a pinch of sugar, then whisk in the extra-virgin olive oil until smooth and thick, set aside.
  • Rub the lamb with the remaining sprig of rosemary, season, then drizzle with the olive oil. Heat a frying pan over a high heat and cook for 1-2 mins on each side until cooked through but still a little pink in the middle.
  • Set aside somewhere warm to rest.
  • Add spinach, chilli, feta, parsley and dressing to the lentils and toss.
  • Slice the lamb then add to the salad with any of the remaining juices and serve.
  • Perfect with a glass of chilled white wine!
