Fregola and peas

  2. Add peas, butter and herbs to the cooked fregola and stir to combine and emulsify.
  3. Season to taste with salt flakes, pepper and lemon juice.

To serve

Hints and tips

  • Fregola is a Sardinian pasta made from semolina. Israeli or giant couscous can be substituted.
  • Lamb racks or rolled short loin would also be a great substitute to rump roast.
  • If using lamb racks, cooking time may need to be reduced for stage 3, as the meat will be thinner.
  • If you have a vacuum sealing drawer, you can sous-vide the lamb. Season the lamb and place in a large vacuum sealing bag. Vacuum on setting 3 and Seal on setting 3. Place into a perforated steam container and Steam at 65°C for 45 minutes. Once cooked, remove from the vacuum sealing bag, pat dry and then sear on all sides until golden brown in a hot frying pan, or gourmet oven dish.
