Ingredients

  • 5,5 oz leftover lamb roast (155 g), shredded
  • 1 medium fresh tomato sliced
  • 1 small red onion sliced
  • 2,5 oz frozen green peas (70 g)
  • a handful fresh mint finely chopped
  • 4 thick slices bread toasted
  • olive oil
  • garlic powder
  • pepper
  • salt

Instructions

  1. Pour a little drop of olive oil in a non-stick casserole and add the sliced red onion. Season with a pinch of pepper, salt and garlic powder.
  2. Place the casserole over medium-high heat and stir fry the onion for 5 minutes until it starts to soften a bit. Then take the onion off the heat and let it cool. It should still be a little crunchy but without the sharp onion taste.

  7. Mash the peas. You can puree them quickly in a blender too but keep the pea mash still chunky. Check the seasoning of the pea mash and add extra pepper, salt or garlic powder to taste if necessary. Let the pea mash oil down. Then toast the bread. Top 2 slices with tomato, pea puree, the shredded lamb and the crunchy red onion. Cover with another slice of bread, secure the sandwich stack with a toothpick or a skewer and serve.
