RECIPE OF THE MONTH

Posted on March 27, 2013 by Rebecca in Recipes

Slow Cooked Stove Top Lamb with Carrot Mash

This month we are all about honouring time. Whether it is making the time or realising you have all the time – knowing that you are allowed to take more than a moment can mean the difference between a day of angst or a day of calm.

And so with the super long weekend ahead of us, filled with chocolate and loved ones – what better way to indulge in the luxury that is time than with a beautiful slow(ish) cooked lamb roast? Serve this up with a side of low carb carrot mash and you have the perfect potato mash substitute!

For a newsletter with a difference, we have teamed up with the amazing Australian company Timber and Tonic  to test out their new ABCT non-stick cooking range.

Why we love these pots?

You no longer need to transfer your dish from your cook pot to a serving plate! That’s right – you can cook your lamb to perfection then simply take the pot to the table without having to ‘plate up’. Talk about saving time!

These pots are ridiculously light weight, suitable for gas, oven or electric cook top as well as being non-stick, which meant when I cooked my lamb I only used a smidgen of oil, not my usual heavy lug! While they are dishwasher safe, it was quite a cinch to clean these up with warm water and a sponge.

Finally – I have managed to condense my kitchen storage space, with my cookware doubling as a salad bowl when the time calls!
