A lamb steak with peas and mint

Some of our windowsill mint was put to excellent use for dinner last night. A quick, very tasty and summery dinner (if a little light on the carbs!) can be found in Nigel Slater's recipe for a lamb steak with peas and mint in Tender Volume 1.

You just blitz the mint together with melted butter and peas to make a pea puree, top that with a lovely grilled lamb steak and then finish off with a little pile of pea shoots and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. A divine and easy supper for a summery weekend evening.

However, due to the lack of carbs it's not going to fill any big holes if you are feeling hungry. Luckily I had a blueberry and peach cake on hand for dessert to do the honours. Another Nigel in fact, the recipe appeared in the newspaper a few weeks ago.


  1. Looks fantastic, sure beats courgette and squash pasta bake on our menu tonight, trying to use up 1/2 ton of courgettes!

  2. It comes highly recommended if you ever have a mint or pea glut!

  3. I am a big fan of Nigel Slater and have the same book as you. The cake looks delicious and although I'm on a low carb diet at the moment I intend to try and make it at the week-end. Thanks for sharing your recipes.

  4. Hi Maureen, thanks for the comment. Let me know how the cake goes!
