200ml of water, boiling
Broad beans and peas

Set the oven to 180˚C/gas mark 4. Start on the lamb rump by oil in a pan on a medium to high heat.
Season thoroughly all over and place the rump fat side down in the pan. Continue to turn until all sides are sealed and golden brown. Transfer the pan to the oven and cook for 9-12 minutes
Remove from the oven and add the remaining oil, rosemary and garlic. Coat the lamb in the rosemary and garlic mixture. Set aside to rest
For the pea purée, put all the ingredients into a blender and set it to a low speed. Increase the speed slowly until the maximum has been reached.
Leave to blend for a further minute and pass through a fine chinoise. Finish by seasoning to taste. Place in a small saucepan ready to reheat and serve
Thoroughly wash the wild garlic leaves and trim off any fibrous ends. Melt the butter in a saucepan on a medium heat. Once hot add the wild garlic, salt and cook until the wild garlic begins to wilt
For the broad beans and peas, bring the butter, salt and water to the boil while whisking to emulsify.
Once it begins to boil, add the broad beans and peas for one minute. Remove from the liquid and serve immediately
Prepare the plate by adding the wilted garlic, broad beans, peas and dotted pea purée. Carve the lamb rump and place over the greens.
