You might need to take a trip to the butcher to get this particular cut of lamb. Swap your weekly steak for lamb with cauliflower mash – it’s bursting with flavour and will leave you feeling satisfied.
For the cauliflower mash
1Preheat the oven to 190°C/375°F/gas mark 5.
2Trim off any excess fat on the lamb and score the top with a sharp knife. Season with salt and pepper and sprinkle over the rosemary.
3Heat a pan with the 1 tablespoon of oil or butter and cook the lamb fat side down for 4 minutes, turning it over every minute until browned. Pop it in the oven for 15 minutes then leave it to rest for 5 minutes.
To make the cauliflower mash
1Cook the cauliflower in a pan of boiling water for 7–10 minutes, until it is cooked through. Drain.
2Meanwhile, heat the oil or butter in a frying pan and throw in the onion. Sauté for 3 minutes then throw in the garlic, a big pinch of salt and the rosemary.
3Cook for another 3 minutes then leave to cool slightly.
4Mash the onion mix with the cauliflower, scraping out all the spices and oil from the pan.
5Serve the mash and lamb together with a drizzle of olive oil, salt and pepper, a pinch of chilli flakes and a big smile.
