Lamb Chops With Minted Pea Purée Recipe

This lamb recipe is super quick and super tasty! Perfect for  mid-week dinners.

Serves 2

Ingredients:

For the lamb:

  • 4 lamb chops
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 1½ tbsp olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and lightly crushed
  • For the minted pea purée:
  • 200g peas, cooked
  • Handful of fresh mint leaves, chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
  • 25g butter, at room temperature

To serve:

  • Baby new potatoes or sweet potato wedges

Instructions:

  1.  Season the lamb chops with salt and black pepper. Heat the olive oil with the garlic in a pan over a medium-high heat, allowing the garlic to infuse the oil for 1-2 minutes. When the oil is hot and shimmering, discard the garlic.
  2.  Cook the lamb chops for 3-4 minutes on each side, until their outsides are crisp and browned but their centres are still pink. Remove to a plate and cover with tin foil to rest.
  3.  Meanwhile, for the purée, place half of the peas into a small blender with the mint, parsley and butter. Whizz until smooth. Season with salt and pepper and stir in the remaining peas.
  4. Serve the chops with the pea purée and baby new potatoes or sweet potato wedges.
