Roasted leg of lamb

Leg of lamb (or any other piece of lamb you have)
tomato paste
olive oil
cardamon powder
chopped onion

-Marinade the meat over night. First start by putting olive oil on the meat, then salt and crushed black pepper. Be generous with the pepper. Sprinkle some cardamon powder on the meat as well.
-In a chopper, finely chop the onion then add a cup of yogurt and two tablespoons of tomato paste, blend well. Use this mixture to coat the meat all around (top and bottom). Place in the fridge over night or until you are ready to bake it.
-When ready to bake: add a cup of water to the pan place rack in the middle of the oven and bake at 325 degrees for about 2 hours or until the meat is done and has a nice color.

Viola! you have yourself a delicious meal! :)

As for the veggies...

I used potatoes, zucchini and carrots. I marinated them with olive oil, salt and pepper. You can add them to the meat tray half way through the cooking process or you can bake them in a separate pan.
