  • 400g red kumara, cut into 1cm-thick wedges
  • ½ head broccoli, cut into small florets *


  • 300g lamb rump steaks (at room temperature)
  • 1 tablespoon tarragon spice mix
  • ½ teaspoon salt


  • 1 beetroot
  • ½ Lebanese cucumber *
  • ½ bag baby spinach leaves, roughly chopped *
  • 1½ tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ teaspoon sugar


  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon vinegar (e.g. white wine, cider)
  • PREHEAT oven to 220°C. Line an oven tray with baking paper.
  • 1 Toss kumara wedges on prepared tray with a drizzle of oil. Season with salt and pepper and roast for 15 minutes. Remove from oven, toss through broccoli and roast for a further 10 minutes, until golden and tender.
  • 2 While kumara cooks, pat lamb dry with paper towels and toss in a shallow bowl with tarragon spice mix, salt and a drizzle of oil. Season with pepper and set aside to marinate for about 5 minutes.
