  • Heat the oil in a non stick pan and brown the lamb steak lightly on both sides then remove from the heat.
  • Add the onion, carrot, celery and garlic and fry for 5 minutes.
  • Return the lamb to the pan along with the water, lemon juice, and oregano.
  • Cover and simmer gently for 30-40 minutes until the lamb is tender. In the last 10 minutes of cooking add the peas.
  • Meanwhile boil the potatoes in unsalted water, drain and mash with the milk and spread.
  • Steam or boil the broccoli until tender and blitz in a food processor then mash into the potato.
  • Remove the lamb from the casserole and cut into manageable size pieces for your baby, or, if necessary blitz in a food processor with a little of the cooking liquid.
  • Serve the stew with the broccoli mash.
  • The stew can be stored in the fridge for 2 days, or can be frozen for up to 3 months. The potato is best made freshly to preserve the vitamin content though will keep for 24 hours in the fridge. Reheat until piping hot.
