High Protein Roast Lamb Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F (165°C).
  2. In a small bowl, combine the minced garlic, chopped rosemary, chopped thyme, olive oil, salt, and pepper.
  3. Place the leg of lamb on a roasting rack in a roasting pan.
  4. Rub the herb and garlic mixture all over the lamb, ensuring it is well coated.
