  • 800g orange kumara


  • ½ iceberg lettuce
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 tomato
  • ¼ red onion (optional, adults)


  • 1 pack lamb leg steaks
  • 1 pack BBQ lamb spice mix
  • 2 tsp balsamic vinegar (optional)
  • 1 tsp mustard (optional)

To Serve

  • 1 pack mint pesto aioli


  1. Cook kumara Preheat BBQ hot plate to medium-high (if using). Preheat oven to 220°C. Cut kumara into chips. Toss kumara with a drizzle of oil on a lined oven tray. Season and roast for about 20-25 minutes, or until golden and tender. Turn once during cooking.
  2. Prep salad Roughly chop lettuce; peel carrot into ribbons; slice tomato into thin wedges; thinly slice red onion. Add all to a bowl. Just before serving, toss with a drizzle of oil and vinegar and season to taste.
  3. Pat lamb dry, season and toss with BBQ lamb spice mix and a drizzle of oil. Leave some lamb plain for little foodies. Heat a drizzle of oil in a fry-pan on medium heat. Cook lamb, for 4-6 minutes each side for medium (depending on thickness), or until cooked to your liking. Alternatively, cook on BBQ hot plate. Remove from heat and toss with balsamic vinegar and mustard. Set aside, covered, to rest for 3-5 minutes before slicing thickly. Reserve any resting juices
  4. Serve chips, salad, lamb and any resting juices with aioli. Serve with plain mayo for fussier little foodies.
