750 g, (½ whole) cut into florets

Olive oil

1 tbs

Lemon juice

cup(s), (80ml)

Fresh lemon rind

2 tsp, grated


1 clove(s), crushed


2 tbs

Fresh flat-leaf parsley

½ cup(s)


cup(s), (35g) coarsely chopped

Lamb leg steak, raw

400 g, Buy 500g (4 x 125g steaks)

Fresh rosemary

2 tsp, finely chopped. plus extra sprigs to garnish

Oil spray

1 x 3 second spray(s)


  1. Process cauliflower in a food processor until coarse crumbs form.
  2. Heat oil in a large non-stick frying-pan over medium heat. Cook cauliflower, stirring, for 3–4 minutes or until golden and tender. Add juice, rind and garlic and cook for 30 seconds or until fragrant. Remove from heat and stir in currants, parsley and walnuts. Cover to keep warm.
  3. Preheat a chargrill over medium-high heat. Lightly spray lamb with oil and sprinkle with rosemary. Season with salt and pepper. Cook lamb for 3–4 minutes each side or until cooked to your liking. Transfer to a plate. Cover lamb with foil and set aside to rest for 10 minutes before thickly slicing.
  4. Drizzle lamb with cooking juices. Serve with cauliflower ‘couscous’ and extra rosemary.


SERVING SUGGESTION: Steamed asparagus, plus steamed corn. TIP: You can use pistachios instead of walnuts. TIP: Don’t take your eyes off the food processor when processing the cauliflower or it will become too fine. It should resemble grains of rice. If you don’t have a food processor, grate the cauliflower with a box grater.
