Cooking Instructions

Preheat the oven to 230°C.
To make the ratatouille: Arrange all the vegetables on a shallow baking pan lined with baking paper. Add the garlic, oregano and seasoning, then moisten with olive oil. Roast on a shelf above the middle of the oven for about 30 minutes, or until tender and starting to catch.
To prepare the lamb: Remove any fat from the lamb steaks then moisten with olive oil. Sear in a hot pan on top of the stove until nicely browned. Smear with garlic and sprinkle with oregano. Place in the oven for 3 minutes.
Remove and pour over the lemon juice. Allow to rest for 5 to 10 minutes then cut the meat into cubes. Mix with the pan juices.
To assemble: Divide the spinach among 4 plates or serve on a platter. Spoon the ratatouille and lamb over the spinach. Sprinkle with parsley or basil and check seasoning. If necessary, drizzle with a little olive oil.
Cook’s tip: For a delicious vegetarian alternative, use feta instead of lamb.
