    Preheat the oven to 160C. Scatter the onions and garlic head in the tray, tucking them underneath the lamb to create a trivet, then pour over the stock. Cover with foil and bake for 3-4 hours until the lamb is fork tender. Transfer the lamb to a large rack then pour the juices in to a saucepan. Add the honey and bring the boil until syrupy.

    For the rice squares, cook the rice according to pack instructions. Tip into a bowl and add the seasoning. Mix then leave to cool until it firms up. Once firm, cut into small rectangles then pan fry until crispy on both sides.
