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
Tips of 4 fat asparagus spears (about 6cm)
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.
Drop the broad beans in a saucepan of boiling water and cook for 1 minute. Lift the broad beans out of the water into a bowl of cold water.

Add the peeled broad beans, the butter and tarragon leaves and season with a little salt and pepper.
Serve the lamb on a bed of lightly reheated vegetables.
