Method

  1. Cook the potatoes in boiling salted water for 15 mins or until tender. Meanwhile, heat the grill or a griddle pan. When the potatoes are almost ready, season the lamb steaks, rub with a little oil, then griddle or grill for 3-4 mins on each side until they are cooked to your liking, adding the tomatoes halfway through until juicy and bursting.
  2. When the potatoes are ready, drain well, then return to the pan and gently crush with a fork or potato masher. Stir through the houmous, olives and parsley, then season well. Serve the crushed potatoes with the lamb and the tomatoes.

I used lemon & corriander houmous which gave it an extra zing-was lovely!

I wanted to try this recipe for a while and was really disappointed in the taste. It looked lovely but the houmous mash had a really strange taste and was a bit dry. Have always had great recipes from this site so was really surprised.

Very nice! Made it without the olives, and added some greek yoghurt mixed with mint.

We will definitely cook this again, but I might try making the mash into patties and just frying in a little oil next time. I think it does need some sort of sauce/jus to hold the whole thing together. I made it with the crushed tomato and courgette recipe (another one on this site with lamb), with red onion, and that worked really well too.

Would you mind giving us the recipe for your red wine and mint jus because that sounds as if it would be perfect and avoid the dryness that most people have found in the mash?

This was lovely, and really easy to cook. Perfect for an after-work dinner.

Delicious! We made the mash without the parsley & olives but it still tasted great. We have made it a few times since and served with peas & peppercorn sauce and that's great to. Hommous mash is a winner!

Really delicious! I made a few tweaks to it though – I didn’t have enough green olives so added some chopped capers and a finely chopped clove of pickled garlic to the potatoes (from the olive jar). I also used peri-peri humus which was gorgeous and gave it a little heat. The potatoes were a bit dry but a bit of olive oil sorted that out. We really enjoyed this and it looks quite impressive stacked up on the plate!

I made it this evening and really enjoyed it, the potatoes were lovely, but I left out the olives as I don't like them, and used chervil instead of parsley as I couldn't get any! Added quite alot of olive oil to the mash so it wasn't dry. Will defo make this again, yummy :-)

I liked the flavour in this dish but the potato was a bit too dry even though I added some olive oil. Maybe I should try it again with some extra houmous and more olive oil to get it smoother.

Oh my! These potatoes are just fantastic. Dish was delicious though I confess I made a red wine and mint jus to go with the lamb, simply because I'm not generally into meat without a little sauce, even if its just a well aged balsamic on my steak! Just a touch of sauce but both my partner and I agreed that the dish benefitted from it. Will definitely be making this one again. These potatoes would make an excellent side dish for the greek roast lamb - probably tomorrows sunday lunch!

I made the salad but replaced the olives with red peppers to add a little crunch and colour. Really good...will definitely make again.

Gorgeous recipe, the vine tomatoes were the perfect finishing touch! The mash was a little dry for my taste so I might try adding a hint of milk or just more houmous next time.

The lamb was lovely, but the potatoes were really moreish - I couldn't stop picking at the left-overs! Will definitely make again.
