Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 40 minutes
Total: 55 minutes



  • 2 racks of lamb
  • 1 cup of lentils
  • 2 cups of vegetable stock
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • For the Jack-by-the-hedge sauce:
  • 1 cup of fresh Jack-by-the-hedge leaves (also known as garlic mustard)
  • 1/4 cup of Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).

  2. Season the racks of lamb with salt and pepper on both sides.

  3. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in an oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Sear the racks of lamb for about 2-3 minutes per side until browned.

  4. Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and roast the lamb for 15-20 minutes for medium-rare or until desired doneness. Let it rest for 5 minutes before slicing.

  5. In the meantime, cook the lentils. In a separate saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Add the diced onion and minced garlic, and cook until softened.

  6. Add the lentils and vegetable stock to the saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until the lentils are tender, about 20-25 minutes.

  7. While the lentils are cooking, prepare the Jack-by-the-hedge sauce. In a blender or food processor, combine the Jack-by-the-hedge leaves, Greek yogurt, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Blend until smooth.

  8. Serve the sliced rack of lamb on a bed of lentils, drizzled with the Jack-by-the-hedge sauce.
