  2. Add the eschalots, broccolini, broad beans and green beans, then cook for a further 1-2 mins until tender. Remove vegetables with a slotted spoon and divide among serving bowls, mashing a little potato against the side of the pan, using a fork, to thicken the stock.
  3. Slice the lamb as thinly as possible then divide among the bowls. Pour over the hot stock (the stock will gently cook the lamb), drizzle with pesto, then serve.
