    Thanks for that. I'm old fashioned, I usually get lamb chops with that succulent crackling. I need to get more next week to help me finish up all the runner beans. This week was lamb's liver (with the usual bacon, mushroom and beans). Now said beans have finally arrived I will have to OD on them to make up for all the ones I didn't eat earlier in the year.

    Mediterranean vegetables with lamb


    This one-pot dish is packed with vegetables and tender lamb and will keep the whole family satisfied … why not serve with low carb oven-baked swede (rutabaga) wedges.

    Ingredients:
    Serves Four
    1 tbsp. olive oil
    250g lean lamb fillet, trimmed of any fat and thinly sliced
    140g shallots, halved
    2 large courgettes (zucchini) cut into chunks
    ½ tsp each ground cumin, paprika and ground coriander
    1 red, 1 orange and 1 green pepper, cut into chunks
    1 garlic clove, sliced
    150ml vegetable stock
    250g cherry tomatoes
    handful coriander leaves, roughly chopped

    Method:
    1. Heat the oil in a large, heavy-based frying pan. Cook the lamb and shallots over a high heat for 2-3 mins until golden. Add the courgettes and stir-fry for 3-4 mins until beginning to soften.
    2. Add the spices and toss well, then add the peppers and garlic. Reduce the heat and cook over a moderate heat for 4-5 mins until they start to soften.
    3. Pour in the stock and stir to coat. Add the tomatoes, season, then cover with a lid and simmer for 15 mins, stirring occasionally until the veg are tender. Stir through the coriander to serve.

    no fair, the fat is the tastiest part! Other than that it looks like an excellent mixture. I think I'll buy some lamb chops tomorrow but I'll probably just grill them with (boiled) Brussels sprouts and chestnuts or purple sprouting broccoli and a couple of thickly buttered oatcakes. Takes almost no time and creates little washing up.

    I'll never get those years back when I avoided the crackling!

    Thanks for reminding me, I have broad beans in the freezer that I haven't used for ages. I wonder if they would work with lamb chops. Only one way to find out . . .
