This garlic-crusted lamb roast makes for a hearty and colorful all-in-one meal. By roasting lamb over a bed of root vegetables creates a juicy, flavorful leg of lamb and perfectly seasoned veggies without the fuss!

Lamb is my favorite protein because of it’s flavor, tenderness, and its a healthier choice! With the growing numbers of consumers focusing on nutrition, healthy lifestyles and accountability in food production, American Lamb is a lean, nutrient rich choice. All American Lamb is hormone free and American Lamb can be offered as all-natural products that are antibiotic free.

With more than 82,000 family-owned sheep operations in nearly every U.S. state, American Lamb is local and available year round. Here’s a list of where to buy American Lamb in your area.


Farmers Market Vegetables

The weather was beautiful on Sunday so I took Basil for a walk to the local Mueller Farmers Market. JBG had the perfect bags of roasting vegetables and the tiniest baby carrots. Just what I needed, along with three doughnuts from Red Rabbit Bakery: coffee, pumpkin, and raspberry!

After a good scrubbing, the vegetables were tossed with olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper.

Lamb leg is a really tender cut so you can skip the marinade. However, to add extra flavor, I marinated the lamb with garlic, rosemary (from my own herb garden!), salt, and olive oil for 3 hours prior to roasting.

I whipped up a quick couscous side with Pereg Gourmet’s Couscous with Cranberries. Add water, cook over stove for 20 minutes, stir and fluff! Super easy to prepare.
