 Servings 4



  • 1.5 lb lamb tenderloin (fillet)
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 lemon, juiced (2 tbsp)
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 2-3 crushed garlic cloves

Cauliflower Mash

  • 2 lb cauliflower chopped
  • 1 cup light single, pouring cream
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1 oz unsalted butter chopped
  • Himalayan salt


  • Make mash: pour cream and chicken stock into a saucepan and turn on the heat. Break the florets off the cauliflower and chop roughly in half, add to the pan.
  • Bring to the boil then lower the heat and simmer, covered for 15 mins.
  • Once cauliflower is simmering, make the lamb marinade.
  • Lamb marinade: Combine all the ingredients except the lamb in a small jug and mix to combine.
  • Place lamb in a zip-lock bag and pour over the marinade. Close the bag and jiggle the lamb around so it’s well coated. Leave to marinate for about 10 minutes.
  • Place a fry-pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tbsp olive oil.
  • Pan-fry the lamb for 3-4 minutes on each side. Rest for a few minutes if time permits.
  • While the lamb is cooking, drain cauliflower which should be tender by now, reserving 1/4 cup of liquid.
  • Use a food processor or immersion blender to blend the cauliflower, butter, salt and the reserved liquid until pureed.
  • Serve the Mediterranean lamb with the cauliflower mash.


Note – The lamb could be marinated a few hours ahead of time.
*Note that the cauliflower is cooked in the cream and stock and then drained. Not all of the stock and cream is consumed. This is reflected in the nutrition panel.
Based on a recipe from Donna Hay for Cauliflower Puree.
I use a mini-food processor to process the cauliflower as the bowl and attachments fit in the dishwasher. Alternatively, you can puree the cauliflower with an immersion (hand-held) blender in the saucepan used to cook it.
