One of the nicest things about having to stay at home due to the coronavirus lockdown is having lots of time to cook lovely, nourishing slow cooked meals for your family. This lamb will be the most tender, incredibly flavoursome roast you’ve ever had. We love to accompany it with crispy roast potatoes, a Greek salad, tzatziki and lemon wedges, and have included simple recipes for the salad and cucumber yoghurt dip below.
To make a delicious Greek salad lay sliced cos lettuce, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, capsicums, red onions and black olives onto a serving dish. Sprinkle over crumbled feta cheese, dill sprigs, sliced mint leaves and a little dried oregano, and dress with olive oil, lemon juice or red wine vinegar, salt and pepper.
Whip up an easy tzatziki by grating one Lebanese cucumber and squeezing it very dry. Mix it in a small bowl with 1 cup of sheep’s or thick Greek yoghurt, 2 tablespoons each of chopped dill and mint leaves, 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 crushed garlic clove, a squeeze of lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste.
