Lamb medallions with pumpkin mash, green bean, zucchini, mushrooms, & whipped feta

When you have not rolled up your sleeves in the kitchen for over a week because you have been on holiday and your meals were all prepped for you and you miss the of knife slicing through your vegetables, when why not pull out all the stops and make Lamb medallions with pumpkin mash, green bean, zucchini, mushrooms, & whipped feta.

When I made this recipe, I was definitely in the mood to impress because I did not get a chance to be in the kitchen for a week! I wanted to keep the recipe fresh, healthy, and fancy. I never used pumpkin to make mash, but will definitely give it a go again. Next time I would add a few regular potatoes to the mix to make the mash a bit more dense.
