Spread lamb with Dijon mustard and cover with breadcrumb mixture, pressing firmly with fingertips.

Place on baking tray with mushrooms and bake for 20-25 minutes.

Remove and allow to rest.

Place beans in a small saucepan of boiling water, cook for 2-3 minutes or until tender.

Drain and refresh under cold water.

Place in a bowl with flaked almonds and a drizzle of olive oil and toss to combine.
