Feta and Spinach Stuffed Lamb Loin with Roast Vegetable Medley and Pea Puree



 

Ingredients – Serves 4

4 x lamb loins approx. 150g each

150g large leaf spinach

300g feta cheese

Salt

Pepper

400g Garden peas, fresh and blanched or pre-frozen and defrosted

1 Red capsicum 3cm x 3cm cubes

1 Yellow capsicum 3cm x 3cm cubes

100g diced potatoes approx. 3cmx3cm cubes

2 Courgettes diced 3cmx3cm cubes

150ml cooking oil for all jobs just make sure its palm oil free of course

 

Method

  • Start by stuffing the lamb. Have a pot of boiling water and drop the spinach in for a few seconds to wilt. Dip the spinach into cold water and then chop it roughly.
  • Mix the spinach with feta cheese and cream it with a spatula and season.
  • Now make a knife incision through the centre of the lamb from end to end with a paring knife.
  • Put the spinach mix into a piping bag and pipe the mixture into the lamb loin
  • Wrap in cling film and set in the fridge whilst you prepare the rest of the ingredients.
  • Now put the peas into a pot with just enough water to cover them and boil.
  • Once boiling, remove half of the water, season and blend the peas to a fine puree.
  • Meanwhile mix the vegetables of your choice which have been diced at about 3cmx3cm, I have used capsicum, courgette and potato. Season and oil them then roast in an oven until tender at 200°C.

 

To serve

  • In a pan heat a little oil and when hot add the lamb (which again should be seasoned) and cook until caramelised on one side before turning and repeating on all sides. With lamb loin this should be a good indication of when it is cooked. At the most you will need to put into an oven for 5 minutes.

  • Serve the lamb sliced after resting and heat the pea puree and vegetables.
