Roast Lamb with Orzo and Asparagus Salad

Posted By Kerri


We were planning lamb chops this evening but when I got to the shop, the half legs of lamb were much cheaper so I snapped one of those up instead. Roasted in the oven with some garlic and thyme tucked into the flesh, sadly a little over-cooked though.

The orzo was dressed with olive oil, lemon juice, mint, parsley, spring onion, feta cheese, asparagus and pine nuts. It worked well as a stand-alone dish and the flavours complimented the lamb well but would have been better with couscous as the texture of the pasta just didn’t seem right with the lamb.

    I love love love orzo. Minced lamb goes with it well, but I haven’t tried it with larger pieces.
