Lamb chops with herb pesto and roast carrots
Coriander pesto covered lamb chops, a delicious alternative dish.

4 carrots, peeled and roughly chopped lengthwise

4 tbsp oil

6-8 lamb loin chops

50g roasted peanuts

20g coriander, roughly chopped

1 garlic clove

Preheat the oven to 180°C / 350°F / Gas mark 4.

Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper and layer the carrots on with a drizzle of olive oil, salt and pepper and cook until tender and slightly golden.

Rub a little oil onto each side of the lamb, then season to taste with salt and pepper.

Grill, over medium-high heat for 5 minutes, then turn over and grill 5 minutes more for medium; 7 minutes for well done.

Meanwhile, crush together the rest of the ingredients with the remaining oil with a mortar and pestle, to a rough paste.

Serve the chops with the pesto drizzled over along with the delicious roast carrots and perhaps some peas if you like.
