- The lamb can be cooked on a hooded BBQ or replaced with lamb steaks.
- The lamb can be stuffed and rolled if preferred – this looks impressive when sliced.
- Slice the lamb thinly and turn into a salad - place on a bed of rocket, add cherry tomatoes, red onion, avocado, cucumber and serve with a yogurt dressing or avocado and garlic dressing.
- Replace the frozen beans for fresh beans when they are in season.
