- Serves 4
Lamb Chump Tray Bake with Roasted Vegetables
Pre-heat oven to 200c/180c fan forced. Line a large shallow baking dish with baking paper.
Rub basil pesto over lamb chops. Set aside.
Arrange onion, capsicum, zucchini, tomatoes and eggplant in a single layer in baking dish. Drizzle oil and vinegar. Season with salt and pepper. Roast for 15 minutes.
Sprinkle garlic over vegetables, place lamb on vegetables, season with salt and pepper. Top with olives and roast for a further 15 minutes. Serve with basil leaves and crusty bread.
Experiment with different types of pesto. A sundried tomato pesto would also work well with this recipe.
Green olives give a nice flavour and colour but Kalamata olives can be used.
You can also use other cuts like lamb loin chops, lamb forequarter chops and lamb rump (cap off).
