Delicious meat dish!

I followed this pretty much exactly, even served with bulgar wheat and chives. Was delicious! I mashed the peas with a potato masher. Easy enough to do without having to wash the food processor! I also used dried mint as I couldn't find fresh. Worked great! Lamb in the oven after 8 minutes was perfection.

Easy and healthy

Being Australian, we eat lots of lamb! So alternative ways to cook chops (instead of the usual BBQ) is great. I used some Greek Lamb seasoning sprinkled on what we call 3/4 chops (trimmed of fat), and I didn't bother pan frying first, they brown nicely enough in the oven. I also really dislike frozen peas, and as fresh peas are in season now I used these instead, it only takes a few minutes to pod them! My husband loves these 'Mushy Peas!'. Also, if you do not have enough fresh peas, try adding carrots or other vegetables. Makes a great veggie mash.

Great way to cook lamb chops, satisfying taste
