For the roast lamb leg
Open the bag remove greaseproof wrapped contents carefully just as packaged, gently overlap the pieces to lay flat, cover well with more greaseproof if need or foil and slip onto the preheated hot roasting tray and place in the oven 2 minutes each side for pink, 4 minutes each side for well done.

NB this is not a very thick sauce, if you wish to thicken it more just add more butter.
Lamb fat roasties
Open the bag with the potatoes and empty them into the hot roasting tin. Make sure all the herb & lamb fat is included. Return the tray to the oven and roast at 200 deg Celsius turning every 7 minutes for 22 to 25 minutes or until crisp. Drain on paper and salt to taste then serve immediately. Do not be afraid to keep them in the oven until burnished gold and crisp. Cooking times will depend on your oven.
For the vegetables
Place the bag of vegetables in the pan of gently simmering water ( no more than 75 deg Celsius in order not to overcook the ready to eat vegetables) for 7 minutes just before serving. Open the bag carefully so as not to scald yourself and empty into a serving bowl or dish. Make sure you empty out the dressings & flavoured butter over the vegetables & toss well.
NB this is a fully recyclable bag and will go in your recyclable bin.
Take a ladle of warm water from the simmering pan up and pour into a heatproof bowl. Slip the tarator bag into the bowl. Leave for 5 minutes to gently warm through, do not overheat it will split. Carefully cut the bag and pour into a jug then over your roast cauliflower. NB The bags are made from plant starch, they are 100% biodegradable & compostable & will stick together if you put 2 in 1 bowl. They may also split if you attempt to boil them.
