Ingredients2 loins of lamb, trimmed of fat and skin, each about 150 g
1 clove of garlic, finely sliced
3-4 sprigs of lemon thyme
Freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
6 baby carrots, peeled
3 tbsp water
1 cup freshly shelled broad beans
50 ml dry white wine
10 g butter
About 10 tarragon leaves
A few fresh herbs for garnish – mint leaves and chervil are nice
PreparationCut each loin of lamb into 5 pieces. In French the cut is called ‘noisette’. Season the noisettes with finely sliced garlic, chopped lemon thyme, a little freshly ground black pepper and 1 tbsp olive oil. Put aside for 30 minutes.
Place the carrots in a small pan with 1/2 tbsp olive oil and 3 tbsp water and cook, covered, for about 8 minutes.
Place the shelled broad beans in a saucepan of boiling water. Drain after
3 minutes, then peel the broad beans.
Heat a non-stick frypan and cook the lamb noisettes, seasoned with salt, for about 2-3 minutes on each side. Transfer the noisettes to a dish.
Add 50 ml dry white wine to the pan and bring to the boil. Add the carrots and their cooking juices, the broad beans, a knob of butter and the tarragon leaves.
Serve 5 pieces of lamb per person onto 2 plates. Spoon the vegetables and juices in between the noisettes and garnish with a few mint leaves and chervil leaves.

Rinsing long-grain white rice before cooking removes excess starch, thus helping the rice cook more evenly and be less sticky. Some specialty rice, such as basmati, is always rinsed and soaked before cooking to obtain separate, perfectly cooked grains. However, other rice, such as Arborio, prized for its starchiness in risotto, is never rinsed.
