To make the beetroot salad, preheat oven to 200°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Place beetroot in a bowl with oil and cumin and toss to coat. Season. Place on the prepared tray and roast, turning occasionally, for 1 hour.


Meanwhile, finely chop ¼ cup of reserved beetroot leaves for the salsa verde. Place remaining 11/2 cups beetroot leaves in a bowl. Drizzle with extra oil and season. Cut reserved beetroot stems into 3cm lengths.


Add beetroot stem to the tray and roast for 10 mins. Add leaves and roast for a further 10 mins or until tender.


While the beetroot is roasting, place the lamb, cumin, turmeric and paprika in a bowl and season. Toss to combine. Set aside to come to room temperature.


To make the ginger-whipped feta, place feta, cream cheese, honey, ginger and lemon rind in a food processor and process until smooth. Season.


To make the salsa verde, place mint, parsley, lemon juice, oil and garlic in a small bowl with the chopped beetroot leaves. Stir to combine. Season.


Heat a large frying pan or chargrill on medium heat. Cook the lamb for 3-4 mins each side or until cooked to your liking. Set aside for 10 mins to rest.


Spread feta mixture onto serving plates. Top with beetroot mixture and a little salsa verde. Add the lamb and drizzle with remaining salsa verde.
