  • 4 lamb leg steaks
  • 350 g butternut pumpkin (butternut squash) 1 - 11/2 cm dice
  • 1 red capsicum (red pepper) sliced into strips
  • 1 red (spanish) onion sliced into wedges
  • 250 g mini tomatoes halved - I used mini romas
  • 60 g baby rocket / arugula
  • 2 lemons juice only
  • 2 tsp whole grain mustard
  • 2 tbsp pine nuts
  • 100 g danish feta crumbled

Spice Rub

  • 2 tsp olive oil plus extra for frying
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp allspice
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp ground coriander seeds
  • ¼ tsp fine salt


  • Pre heat oven to 190c
  • Pile the pumpkin, capsicum, tomatoes and onion wedges into the middle of a large baking tray. Drizzle with 2 tsp of olive oil, then mix with your hands to coat. Spread out the vegetables into an even layer on the baking tray, as well spaced as you can. Bake for 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl mix together the mustard and lemon juice, then set aside.
  • Combine all the ingredients for the spice rub, and evenly coat both sides of each lamb leg steak with the rub.
  • Pan fry the lamb leg steaks over medium high heat using the extra olive oil, until cooked to your liking. Immediately turn the pan down to low, then remove the lamb to a plate to rest. Add pine nuts to pan and stir - they should start to colour almost straight away. As soon as they start to colour, switch off the heat, add the combined mustard & lemon juice, and continue stirring to heat through.
  • Thinly slice the lamb leg steaks, and add any of the resting juices to your mustard & lemon dressing.
  • Combine the now cooked roasted vegetables with the baby rocket (arugula) and divide amongst plates. Top with sliced lamb, crumble over feta then drizzle with mustard & lemon dressing.
