Ingredients2 racks of lamb, each with 3 cutlets, trimmed of fat
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper
1 tbsp finely sliced rosemary leaves
100g broad beans, removed from the pods
4 baby carrots, peeled
½ cup shelled peas

8 tarragon leaves
PreparationBrush the racks of lamb with a little olive oil and season with pepper and rosemary leaves.
Preheat the oven to 150°C.
Heat a small ovenproof pan and brown the lamb racks for 1 minute. Then bake the racks in the preheated oven for about 10 minutes.
Remove the pan from the oven, cover the meat with foil and rest for 10 minutes before carving.
