+/- 30 min
Preheat the oven to 220 ºC. Heat the olive oil in a fairly large pan and add the butternut, onions, garlic and brown sugar. Stir-fry rapidly over high heat for about five minutes until the vegetables are just softening and nicely caramelised. Transfer to a large roasting tin and add the lemon juice, lemon slices and thyme leaves. Season with salt and pepper, place the lamb chops on top of the ingredients and scatter the whole thyme sprigs on top. Roast for 25-30 minutes until the lamb chops are done and the butternut is tender. Turn the chops if necessary. Garnish with extra thyme sprigs. Serves 4.
