 Ingredients List

  • 1 Bone-in leg of spring lamb
  • 5 Garlic cloves; peeled,
  • - cut into 1/4-in slivers
  • 2 tb Olive oil
  • 10 md Onions; finely sliced
  • 1/2 tb Chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • -=OR=-
  • 1 ts -Dried thyme
  • 1/2 tb Salt; or as desired
  • White pepper
  • 2 c Cooked rice
  • 1/2 c Whipping cream
  • 1 ts Nutmeg, freshly ground


PREHEAT OVEN TO 400F. Trim excess fat from the outside of the leg, leaving
only a thin layer. Using a small knife, poke holes in the meat and stuff in
slivers of garlic. Rub the surface of the lamb with olive oil. Mound onions
and thyme in the middle of a roasting pan. Sprinkle the lamb with salt and
pepper and place it, fat side down, on the onions. Place in the oven,
reduce heat to 350F and roast 1 hour. Turn the lamb fat side up and return
to the oven. Roast another 20-to-30 minutes for medium-rare or about 20
minutes per pound. A meat thermometer should read 145F for medium rare.
Remove the pan from the oven and place the lamb on a cutting board. Let
rest 15 minutes before carving. Scrape the onions into a food processor,
add the rice, cream, nutmeg and desired salt, and pulse, scraping down the
sides of the bowl, until a lumpy smooth puree is attained. When it's time
to serve dinner, transfer the puree to a vegetable dish. Slice the lamb and
arrange on a meat platter.
