main courses | serves 6

This almond- and herb-coated lamb gives a twist to your Sunday roast.

1. Preheat the oven to 200C/gas 6. Slice the rhubarb into 5cm pieces and place in a roasting tray. Drizzle with honey and a good glug of olive oil, mix well, then spread out evenly over the pan.
2. Blitz the almonds in a food processor with the herbs, then transfer to a bowl. Stir in the breadcrumbs and season.
3. Using a sharp knife, score the fat on the lamb, rub in the mustard, then pat on the breadcrumb mix. Place the lamb on the rhubarb, drizzle with oil and cook for 2535 minutes for medium, or a further 510 minutes for well done. Rest for 510 minutes, then carve into cutlets and serve with the rhubarb.
