Ingredients
  

  • 4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 3 large cloves garlic , chopped
  • 2 cups frozen peas (12 ounces), thawed
  • 3/4 cup water, plus more as needed
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 8 lamb loin chops (11/2-2 pounds total), trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh min

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 375°F
  • Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant and slightly softened, about 1 minute. Stir in peas, 3/4 cup water and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, cover and cook for 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper on both sides of lamb chops. Heat the re-maining 2 teaspoons oil in a large, ovenproof, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chops and cook until browned on one side, 11/2 to 2 minutes. Turn them over and transfer the pan to the oven.
  • Roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into a chop registers 135°F for medium-rare, 8 to 12 minutes, depending on thickness
  • Meanwhile, transfer the pea mixture to a blender or food processor. Add mint; pulse until coarsely pureed, adding additional water a tablespoon at a time for desired consistency and scraping down the sides as needed.
  • Serve the lamb with the pea puree.
