Spiced lamb chops with honey carrots & chickpea puree


  • Preheat oven to 200°C fan forced (220°C normal). 
  • Whiz up the chickpeas, stock, cumin and garlic in a food processor. 
  • Then add a good slurp of oil, the juice of ½ lemon, 2 tbsp chopped coriander with salt and pepper through the feeder tube, continually mixing until well combined. Taste for seasoning and set aside. 
  • Whisk ¼ cup oil, a little seasonings and the harissa with the remaining coriander and lemon juice until well combined in a large bowl. 
  • Add the chops and toss well. Then place them in a baking tray, spoon any marinade over the top and cook in the oven for about 12 mins (for medium-rare). 
  • After about 5 mins, cook the carrots until tender in a pot of boiling water. Then drain well and return to the pot with the butter, honey, parsley and seasonings. Stir and briefly cook to caramelise a little. 
  • Serve the chops with pan juices spooned over the top, a mound of carrots on the side and a dollop of chickpea puree in the centre. 
  • nb.  If you like your meat well done, cook the lamb in the oven at 180°C fan forced (200°C normal) for a little longer.
