  1. Put the olive oil in a frying pan over a low heat. Add the shallots, season, and cook for 10 mins, stirring frequently.
  2. Increase the heat to medium and add the radishes, carrots and sugar. Cook, stirring, for 5 mins, then add 75ml water. Bring to the boil, then cover and simmer for 4 mins. Add the beans and continue simmering for a further 3-4 mins, until all the water has been absorbed.
  3. Meanwhile, make the dressing. Put the oil, sugar, vinegar, mint and 1 tbsp water in a small bowl; mix to combine. Arrange the veg on a serving plate and spoon over the dressing. Scatter with the extra mint. Serve with the roast lamb.

Tip: For a fuss-free way to chop herbs, put the leaves in a cup and snip with scissors.
