    Black garlic lamb with squash salad

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes, plus resting
    • Cooking time: 30 minutes
    • Total time: 40 minutes, plus resting

    Serves: 2


    2 tbsp Bart Black Garlic Paste
    2 tsp chopped fresh dill, plus extra fronds to serve
    1 unwaxed lemon, zest and juice (3 tbsp)
    About 200g lamb loin fillet with rosemary
    350g pack diced butternut and sweet potato
    ½ red onion, cut into wedges
    1 tbsp olive oil
    250g pouch Waitrose & Partners LoveLife Puy Lentils
    2 tbsp pomegranate seeds


    1. Preheat the oven to 200˚C, gas mark 6. Mix the garlic paste, dill, lemon zest and 2 tbsp juice; season. Rub all over the lamb and set aside. Toss the butternut squash and sweet potato with the onion and 2 tsp oil; roast for 30 minutes until golden, turning once.

    2. After 20 minutes’ cooking, heat 1 tsp oil in a non-stick frying pan. Add the rosemary from the lamb pack. Wipe the marinade from the lamb (reserving the remaining marinade) and add the meat to the frying pan. Cook for 3 minutes on each side until browned all over. Discard the rosemary. Take off the heat; splash in the marinade and 2 tbsp water – it will bubble dramatically. Cover and rest for 5 minutes.

    3. Heat the lentils according to pack instructions. Toss with the squash, sweet potato and onion and the remaining 1 tbsp lemon juice; season. Divide between 2 plates and top with the thickly sliced lamb, its sauce (plus any carving juices), the pomegranate seeds and a few dill fronds.

    Cook's tip
    Make double the amount of the salad so you have enough for lunch the next day. Just add a little feta, some rocket and a drizzle of lemony dressing.
