Harissa, the chilli-based condiment originating from North Africa varies in heat from mild to firey. Our version is definitely on the mild side, with a gentle heat plus herby spices. It's the ideal sauce to complement lamb, and with a hearty roast veggie toss plus a side of creamy yoghurt, there's a burst of flavour in every bite!

garlic & herb seasoning
white wine vinegar
• Preheat oven to 240°C/220°C fan-forced. Lightly score lamb fat in a criss-cross pattern. Place lamb, fat-side down, in a large frying pan (no need for oil!). Place pan over a medium heat and cook, undisturbed, until golden, 10-12 minutes. Increase heat to high and sear lamb rump on all sides for 30 seconds. • Transfer lamb, fat-side up, to a lined oven tray. Evenly spread harissa paste over lamb. Season with salt and pepper. Roast for 15-20 minutes for medium or until cooked to your liking. • Remove lamb from oven. Cover with foil and set aside to rest for 10 minutes.
TIP: Starting lamb in a cold pan helps fat melt without burning.
• While lamb is roasting, cut potato and carrot into bite-sized chunks. Cut beetroot into small chunks. • Place veggies on a second lined oven tray. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with garlic & herb seasoning, then season with salt and toss to coat. Spread out evenly, then roast until tender, 20-25 minutes.
TIP: If your oven tray is crowded, divide between two trays.
• Meanwhile, finely chop garlic. • Wipe out frying pan, then return to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook garlic until fragrant, 1 minute. Transfer garlic oil to a small bowl, then add Greek-style yoghurt and stir to combine. Season to taste. • In a second small heatproof bowl, add the honey and butter. Microwave in 10 second bursts until melted. • Add lamb resting juices to melted honey butter and stir to combine. Season to taste.
• Add salad leaves and a drizzle of white wine vinegar to roasted veggies and gently toss to combine. • Slice harissa lamb. Divide lamb and roasted root veggie toss between plates. • Spoon honey butter sauce over lamb. • Serve with garlic yoghurt.
