Is there anything better than the good old warming Sunday roast when the weather turns cold? ???? ❄

Perhaps only one so easy you can cook it up on a weeknight as well! ???? ???? ????????

We know all our northern hemisphere friends are just about to be spoilt with the warmth and sunshine of Spring, but here in Adelaide the weather has taken a rather squiggly downwards turn. And by that, I mean random days of warm Autumn sunshine, followed by intense thunderstorms, followed by pouring rain, followed by random sun again… and so on!

If it’s not four seasons in one week, it’s four seasons in one day… and sometimes it feels like we can barely keep up.

Pair all of that weather upheaval with the many and varied household renovations going on in (and around) Wandercooks HQ, and you’ve got a serious recipe for some killer comfort food cravings.

So with our minds turning to the most warming, nourishing, comforting meals we could think of to suit the latest batch of coooold almost-(but-who’s-counting) wintery nights, it’s only natural that a juicy roast and veggie dish would pop up on the menu.

(And for any fellow Aussies, there’s no surprise that roast would be lamb, am I right? ????)

We’re amping up the traditional lamb roast today with a crunchy nut and spice dukkah crust courtesy of Table of Plenty’s Pistachio Dukkah. The subtle blend of crunchy pistachios, sesame seeds, and warming spices is like a match made in heaven with roast lamb.

Today’s recipe gives us all those warm and satisfying and well-fed feels, especially because it is so so easy. Seriously, roast dinners don’t get enough credit: Take lamb roast + baste it with oil + sprinkle with dukkah + pop it in the oven for an hour and a half. (Oh, and throw in a few veggies to roast and round it all out.)

Dinner done. It doesn’t get much easier than that. ????

Ingredients

  • 1.3 kg lamb roast boneless
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 packet Table of Plenty Pistachio Nut & Spice Dukkah

Optional Sides

  • 3 carrots peeled and quartered
  • 3 potatoes peeled and quartered
  • 1 brown onion peeled and quartered
  • salt & pepper, or your favourite veggie seasoning to taste

Instructions

  • Go ahead and preheat your oven to 200˚C (390˚F). 
  • Baste your lamb roast in olive oil, sprinkle with dukkah and use your basting brush to press the dukkah onto the lamb until evenly coated across the top and sides.
  • Pop the roast in the oven for around 45 minutes, then take it out and turn it over, and baste the top (formerly the bottom!) with oil and plenty of dukkah. 
  • Now's the time to add in your carrots, potatoes and onion. Pop them into the same roasting pan with the meat. Make sure to give them a good baste with oil and sprinkle with salt & pepper or your favourite veggie seasonings. 
  • Pop it all back in the oven for a further 45 mins, or until juices run clear when the meat is pierced with a fork. 
  • Now take your fragrant dukkah-crusted roast out of the oven, cover with aluminium foil, and allow to rest for 10 mins or so til it's juicy and tender. 
  • For the most delicious experience, serve your delicious roast and veggies on pre-warmed plates with plenty of gravy!

    Dukkah is such a great pantry staple, it is fantastic to coat or mix in with so many things. Your dukkah crusted lamb looks awesome.

      Thanks Amanda! It’s great how the dukkah really crisps up on the outside, and helps to hold in the juices. Enjoy! 🙂

    I love how simple this is! Lamb is one of my favorite, if not my favorite, meats out there. The flavor is so delicious I like simple recipes like this that don’y overpower the delicious lamb flavor!

      Agreed! It’s nice to have a recipe that tastes so good but takes just a couple of minutes to prep and pop into the oven. 🙂
