What if you could enjoy your favourite comfort classics without spending hours in the kitchen? You can, thanks to Woolworths! The Easy Meals range has expanded to include ready-prepped stews and slow roasts. The Easy Meals leg of lamb is slow-cooked on the bone for extra flavour, and accompanied by roast potato wedges and carrots. The team at Woolworths has done most of the work – roast it for 40 minutes and you’re ready to serve. Your convenience is the top priority – the packaging even offers serving suggestions: pumpkin fritters, fried rosemary and Tenderstem broccoli.

But foodies know that serving suggestions can sometimes be a guide, not a must. If you’ve added Woolworths’ Easy Meals leg of lamb to your cart, here’s how you can give it your personal touch and turn it into mouthwatering meals you can enjoy any day of the week.

1. Lamb tacos

Slice the lamb and serve with tortilla wraps, grated cabbage, pickled onions, salsa, chipotle crème and fiery jalapeños. The family can have fun assembling their own tacos at the table. Who needs takeaways?

2. Lamb bánh mì

We can’t all fly to Vietnam for one of the best sandwiches in the world, but we can make it at home! Traditionally, bánh mì is made with pork and liver spread, but TASTE food contributor Clem Pedro put a South African spin on this recipe by using smoked snoek pâté and roast lamb.

3. Shepherd’s pie

This pie, topped with pastry rather than mash, can be assembled and frozen. Frozen meals come in handy on days when you’re not in the mood to cook, and a meaty pie with a flaky pastry topping makes the perfect midweek winter meal. Shepherd’s pieGet the recipe for shepherd’s pie here. 

4. Thick-crust lamb pizza

This lamb pizza makes a fantastic weekend baking project (and meal). Pizza purists may disagree but pizza bases are a canvas – go crazy with toppings! Roughly chop the Easy Meals leg of lamb and assemble on the pizza base with whipped feta and caponata, and garnish with mint leaves. Who said you can’t make gourmet pizzas at home?

5. Leftover lamb prego rolls

Woolworths’ Easy Meals let you enjoy all your favourite comfort meals without a sweat. Follow the easy packaging instructions to tuck into classics such as tomato bredie, roast leg of lamb and ox tripe, and must-try winter warmers including Asian-style beef shortrib and coconut lamb curry.
