Takes a few hours but the oven does all the work, if you’ve ran out of room for vegetables, cook on another oven dish and when tender throw them back next to the other vegetables in the pan next to the lamb. Ensure they are all sitting on the pan, not piled up.

- 1 Roast lamb
- Half Jap or butternut pumpkin
- 1 or 2 Onions

- 1 or 2 Carrots
- 2 Potatoes

- After timer has gone off place roast vegies around lamb and coat in the juices that have come out of the lamb, season vegies with salt and pepper, garlic and rosemary, put olive oil on them and toss in pan. Put back In oven for a further 45 minutes, turn vegetables after timer has gone off and reset it for another half an hour.
- Check on the lamb and vegetables and cook for a further 15 minutes if you like them crispy. While cooking, put on your peas and beans and start to prepare gravy.
- Remove lamb from oven and place on a plate, wrap with some foil to keep warm and let lamb rest for 15 minutes.
