Method

  • 1. Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a roasting dish with baking paper.

  • 2. Place the potato and kumara in the dish, drizzle with oil and sprinkle with sea salt. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 mins.

  • 3. Add the pumpkin, carrots, beetroot and yams (if using) to the dish and cook for a further 20 – 25 minutes, or until the veges are nice and crispy without getting soggy or overcooked.

  • 4. Meanwhile, prepare the rest of the meal. Cook the lamb to your preference on the barbecue or in a fry pan. Cover with some tinfoil and a clean tea towel and set aside to rest.

  • 5. Place the butter in a fry pan with a well-fitting lid and melt over a medium heat. Add the red onion and cook, stirring, for a few minutes. Just before it starts to brown, add the red cabbage and a dash of white wine vinegar. Cover and cook for 4-5 mins. You want to get it heated through but still have some crunch.

  • 6. In the last couple of minutes of cooking the roast veges, put the broccoli in a pot of cold water and bring to the boil. Once the water is boiling, remove from the heat and drain. Serve simply as is or sprinkle over the sliced almonds.

  • 7. Once the roasted veges are cooked, place in a large bowl and add the dip. Stir to combine and top with the feta.

  • 8. Serve the lamb with the roasted veges, red cabbage and broccoli.

  • TIP: When you’re preparing the roast veges, try to cut them all in to similar sized chunks for uniform cooking.
