Method

Remove Silver Fern Farms Lamb Rumps from the fridge and packaging and allow to bloom at room temperature for 10 mins.

Preheat oven to 200*C (fan bake).

Make a crust by mixing pistachios, garlic, breadcrumbs, olive oil, rosemary, lemon juice and zest. Season with salt and pepper.

Brush the Lamb Rumps with mustard. Heat a heavy-based frying pan or grill until medium-high. Sear Lamb Rumps on all sides for 1-2 mins until beginning to brown. Remove from heat and transfer to an oven rack with an oven tray underneath. Place crust mix on top of Lamb Rumps and push down to cover. Bake for 10-15 mins. Remove from the oven and allow to rest for 5 mins before serving.

Meanwhile, peel kumara, cut into quarters, place in a microwave-proof bowl and cover with water. Microwave for 10 mins.

Drain and dry kumara, toss with olive oil and transfer to an oven tray lined with baking paper. Roast in the oven, along with second measure of garlic, for 20-30 mins or until cooked. Remove the skins from the garlic and transfer along with the kumara to a heatproof bowl. Add cream and blend until smooth. Cover.

Meanwhile, place carrots and broccolini on another baking tray lined with baking paper. Drizzle over the liquid honey mix. Roast for 10-15 mins, until beginning to caramelise and are tender.

Serve the sliced Lamb Rumps with creamy kumara mash, honey glazed carrots and broccolini. Accompany with extra pistachios and serve with a caramelised balsamic reduction.
