Instructions

Make figgy mint sauce
1

Before starting, preheat the oven to 425°F. Wash and dry all produce. Pick mint leaves from stems, then roughly chop. Peel, then mince or grate garlic. Peel, then finely chop shallot. Heat a small pot over medium heat. When hot, add vinegar, fig spread, mint, half the shallots and 1 tbsp water (dbl for 4 ppl). Cook, stirring often, until sugar dissolves, 1 min. Transfer figgy mint sauce to a small bowl. Set aside to cool.

Cook potatoes
2

Peel, then cut potatoes into 1/2-inch pieces. Add potatoes, 2 tsp salt and enough water to cover (by approx. 1 inch) to a large pot (use same for 4 ppl). Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium. Simmer, uncovered, until fork-tender, 10-12 min.

Form and bake meatballs
3

While potatoes cook, combine lamb, panko, balsamic glaze, garlic and remaining shallots to a large bowl. Season with 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper (dbl both for 4 ppl), then combine. (TIP: If you prefer a firmer meatball, add an egg to the mixture!) Roll lamb mixture into 8 equal-sized meatballs (16 for 4 ppl). Transfer meatballs to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake in the middle of the oven until cooked through, 10-12 min.**

Cook veggies
4

While meatballs bake, trim green beans. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl), then green beans, peas and 3 tbsp water (dbl for 4 ppl). Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender-crisp, 5-6 min. Season with salt and pepper.

Mash potatoes
5

When potatoes are fork-tender, drain and return them to the same pot, off heat. Mash 2 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl) and sour cream into potatoes until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

Finish and serve
6

Divide mashed potatoes, balsamic lamb meatballs and veggies between plates. Spoon mint sauce over meatballs.
