Easy enough for a quick weeknight meal, and special enough for a fun Saturday night dinner party. This recipe will be a definite hit no matter the crowd!

Sweet spiced winter lamb




  • 2 tbsp Pams Squeezable Liquid Honey
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp Moroccan spice
  • 8 parsnips and/or carrots, cut in quarters lengthwise
  • 200g block feta, room temperature
  • ¼ cup natural yoghurt
  • 8 lamb shoulder (or loin) chops, room temperature
  • ¼ cup Pams Dates, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 220°C. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the honey, garlic, 1 tbsp spice mix and a good glug of olive oil.
  2. Place the vegetables on a lined baking tray, drizzle over the honey mix and toss to coat. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and place in the oven at 220°C for 25-30 minutes until the veggies are tender and golden brown.
  3. While the veggies are cooking, make the feta whip. Place the feta and yoghurt in a bowl with a drizzle of olive oil and whisk until smooth. Set aside. 
  4. Sprinkle the remaining spice mixture all over the lamb chops and season with salt and pepper. Add a drizzle of oil to a large frying pan over high heat and cook the chops for 3 minutes each side. Once cooked, leave to rest for 3 minutes.
  5. To assemble, place the whipped feta on the bottom of a large serving platter, top with the vegetables, sprinkle over the chopped dates and top with lamb chops.

Top tip:

For the ultimate show-stopping garnish whip up some honey-toasted hazelnuts! Just place ¼ cup chopped hazelnuts in a small pan and toast until fragrant. Add a sprinkle of salt, a pinch of chilli flakes, drizzle with honey and stir until all the hazelnuts are coated. Spoon onto a piece of baking paper and leave to cool. Sprinkle over your dish with a handful of fresh mint leaves.
