thyme-roasted lamb

with sweet potato and oregano salsa verde

  • 700g mixed sweet potato (kumara)+, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup (60ml) extra virgin olive oil
  • sea salt and cracked black pepper
  • 1 bunch thyme sprigs
  • 3 x 500g boneless lamb loin roasts, trimmed

oregano salsa verde

  • 1 cup oregano leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon rind
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • ½ cup (125ml) extra virgin olive oil
  1. Preheat oven to 220°C (425°F). Place the sweet potato, 2 tablespoons of the oil, salt and pepper in a bowl and toss to combine. 
  2. Place the sweet potato in a single layer, overlapping slightly, on a large lightly greased oven tray. Place a few thyme sprigs on top of each lamb loin and fasten with kitchen string. 
  3. Place the lamb on top of the sweet potato, drizzle with the remaining oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook for 25 minutes for medium rare or until the lamb is cooked to your liking and sweet potato is tender. Set aside to rest for 5 minutes.
  4. While the lamb is cooking, make the oregano salsa verde. Place the oregano, lemon rind, lemon juice, garlic, oil, salt and pepper in a small bowl. 
  5. Serve the lamb with the sweet potato and oregano salsa verde. Serves 6.

+ We used a mixture of white, orange and Hawaiian (purple) sweet potatoes – they are all available from greengrocers.
