Lamb Rump with Rosemary Cauliflower Mash ... lower carb dish

One of our sons favourite meals is lamb … and I'm sure he would eat this lovely dish almost every day of the week, if he could! Lamb can be expensive, and when shopping I do look for any special offers. So next time lamb rump is a good price - you can guess what I'm going to buy!

This recipe suggestion, from Madeleine Shaw, is for delicious lamb rump with a rosemary cauliflower mash -  a tasty lower carb dish. Lamb rump can make a juicy alternative to steak.


Serves Two
2 lamb rumps
1 tsp dried rosemary
1 tsp coconut oil or butter
1 tsp olive oil
1 tsp chilli flakes
For the cauliflower
1 cauliflower, roughly chopped
1 tbsp. coconut oil or butter
1 onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed

1 tbsp. dried rosemary 

1. Preheat the oven to 190°C/gas mark 5. Trim off any excess fat on the lamb and score the top with a sharp knife. Season with salt and pepper and sprinkle over the rosemary.
2. Heat a pan with the oil or butter and cook the lamb fat side down for four minutes, turning it over every minute until browned. Pop it in the oven for 15 minutes then leave it to rest for five minutes.
3. To make the cauliflower mash, cook the cauliflower in a pan of boiling water for 7-10 minutes until it is cooked through, then drain. Meanwhile, heat the oil or butter in a frying pan and throw in the onion. Sauté for three minutes, then throw in the garlic, rosemary and a big pinch of salt. Cook for another 3 minutes then leave to cool slightly. Mash the onion mix with the cauliflower, scraping out all the spices and oil from the pan.

4. Serve the mash and lamb together with a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of chilli flakes.

I'm not a lover of lamb, but I have to admit, this does look and sound really delicious.

I love lamb but we don't have it all that often because the rest of the family aren't keen. I do enjoy a dash of mint sauce with it too.

Not such a fan of lamb (I guess), but I´ll try the Rosemary Cauliflower Mash :-)

I've only had lamb one time, I might have to try it again.

The cauliflower mash sure is calling me, Jan. I've never cooked lamb, but the mash would be great with a roast beef. Thank you for you for the lovely low carb recipes! ♥

We love lamb too. Especially the very pricey lamb chops. I haven't tried a rump but I certainly will now.

Lamb? Even before I gave up meat I wasn't a fan. Which I know puts me in the minority. Cauliflower mash on the other hand...

Lady Fi said...

The cauliflower mash sounds nice.

Victor S E Moubarak said...

Lamb is a favourite of ours, cauliflower too. So this recipe will be tried.

God bless.

You know I still haven't tried lamb but this looks really good.
Glad you were able to get the rain that you wanted. I agree that August is going by way too quickly, it will be fall before we know it.

Lamb rump is as you say, very pricey but great flavours. I'm off to the butchers this morning to buy a piece of rolled shoulder. Four hours should about do it nicely. No cauliflower though. Roasties and leeks in a cheesy sauce I think?
