Lamb Leftovers

Roast lamb on Easter Sunday is a tradition that doesn’t have to stop this year, although you may well be feeding fewer people. If that's the case, Waitrose & Partners food editor Alison Oakervee has put together some great ideas here for the leftovers using store-cupboard ingredients

ROAST LAMB

For a classic Easter roast, a whole leg of lamb will serve 6-8, and a half leg will serve 2-4. Remember that leftovers can be transformed into delicious new meals. There are plenty of ways to add flavour to lamb, but even just roasting it simply with garlic and sprigs of rosemary will impart a wonderful flavour into the meat

TAKE ON FLAVOUR

Lamb is also great at standing up to much stronger flavours. Try marinating it in sherry or red wine with garlic overnight, or a mixture of yogurt and turmeric

REST, ALWAYS

The secret for all roasts is to allow the lamb to rest for 20-30 minutes before carving and serving
