  • 1kg lamb rump, trimmed

  • 1/2 cup macadamias

  • 3 tbsp Greek feta

  • 4 tbsp breadcrumbs

  • 1/4 bunch thyme

  • Walnut dressing

  • 1/2 cup walnuts toasted

  • 1/2 cup blended vegetable oil such as soy and canola oil

  • A pinch of white pepper

  • 1/8 bunches washed parsley

  • 1/8 bunches washed coriander

  • 1 tbsp honey

  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

    To toast walnuts, spread them evenly on trays for 14 minutes at 170°C. While they’re hot, pour into a bowl and cover with approximately half of the oil.
