Dry Ingredients for “Lamb”
Wet Ingredients for the “Lamb”
For the Simmering Broth
For the “Lamb” Marinade
Preparing the “Lamb”
  1. To begin, add all the dry ingredients in to a large mixing bowl and whisk thoroughly.
  2. Then, transfer the dry ingredients to a food processor and add in the wet ingredients and pulse until a sticky ground “meat” like texture.
Preparing the Simmering Broth
  1. Add all the ingredients above in a large pot. Bring your broth to a boil.
  2. Once boiling, lay the vegan “lamb” into the broth, cover and reduce the heat. Boil for 40 minutes, turn the “lamb” once during the cooking process.
  3. Then remove the vegan “lamb” from the stock allow the joint to cool down for 20 minutes.
  4. Next, preheat your oven to 355F.
Preparing the “Lamb” Marinade
  1. While the “lamb” is cooling off add all of the ingredients above in a high-speed blender and blend smooth. TIP: Prepare this the night before so it’s one less step to do while preparing the “lamb”.
Preparing the Herbed Vegetables
  1. Once you finish making the marinade, chop the onions, tomato wedges and potatoes and add them to a large mixing bowl. Toss the vegetables in olive oil, lemon juice, paprika, sea salt and ground black pepper and set aside.
Roasting & Assembling the “Lamb” and Herbed Vegetables
  1. Next, in a large roasting pan lay the “lamb” on top of parchment paper {to separate it from the vegetables}.
  2. Place the garlic bulbs in both corners of the paper around the joint, making sure there is enough slack paper to cover some of the joint afterwards.
  3. Then, add chopped garlic, fresh mint and peppercorns on the top of the joint and spoon the marinade over top.
  4. Then, add the coated onions to the base of your dish, surround them with tomato wedges around the edges and top the onions with potato wedges.
  5. Now, spoon more marinade onto the joint only. Place sprigs of rosemary around the dish.
  6. Add the roasting pan to the oven. Roast for 1½ hours or until the potatoes turn golden and the joint is dry but dark caramel brown in colour.
  7. You will need to continue basting the “Lamb” with marinade about every 20 minutes to keep it from drying out and enhance the flavor.
  8. Finally remove from the oven, slice and serve with a side of roasted vegetables, Greek salad and some hot bread. Enjoy!
Recipe Notes

This amazing dish is not originally mine but I did adapt it to what I had on hand. I love creating my own Greek cuisine recipes but finding gems like this one is what makes having the internet great. We can learn from each other. This recipe is brilliant and I just tweaked it where I needed to.
