In this week’s parsha Bo, we witness the final three plagues against Egypt.  In preparation for the final plague, the Children of Israel are commanded to sacrifice a lamb and sprinkle blood on their doorposts.  When we commemorate the Exodus on Seder night, we have a tradition to refrain from eating roast meat or lamb so that it does not appear that we are trying to replace the Paschal lamb.  Since Passover is still months away and lamb has a starring role this week, we decided to try a 5-ingredient Roasted Lamb with Lemon Potatoes along with a full menu of 5-ingredient recipes that will turn heads this Shabbos.

MINTED PEA SOUP
