For the Crust
For the Roast Butternut Squash
For the Dressing
To prepare the dressing, combine Siúcra Light Golden Brown Sugar with all the other ingredients and stir well.
Preheat the oven 180°C/fan 160°C /Gas mark 4.
Place the butternut squash wedges and shallots on a lined roasting tray.
Place Siúcra Light Golden Brown Sugar, butter, oil and cumin into a saucepan over a medium heat and stir until the sugar has almost dissolved. Pour over the butternut squash and shallots and toss well.
Sprinkle the rosemary over and roast for about 25 to 30 minutes, tossing a few times until golden and cooked.
Increase the temperature to 200°C/fan 180°C /Gas mark 6 for the rack of lamb.
To prepare the crust for the lamb, mix the Dijon mustard, oil, lemon zest, breadcrumbs, mint, and rosemary in a small bowl. Add salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Heat a large frying pan with a little oil on a medium to high heat, place the lamb into the pan and sear until brown.
Spread the crust over the seared rack of lamb.
Transfer the racks to a roasting tin and place in the oven for about 14 to 16 minutes for medium or 16 to 18 minutes for well done.
Wrap the rack in foil and allow to rest and keep in a warmer for at least 15 minutes.
To serve, spoon the roasted butternut squash and shallots onto the serving platter or board and add the sliced cutlets. Season the cutlets lightly with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Garnish with sprigs of mint and rosemary.
Spoon the dressing over the lamb and pour the rest into a serving bowl.
