1In a food processor, add the almonds, cheese, oil, and the browned breadcrumbs and pulse until pureed. Add the mint, basil, and garlic and process to a smooth texture. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
1Season the lamb racks with salt and pepper. Preheat the oven to 380°F. Heat the olive oil in a heavy-bottomed pan over high heat and sear the lamb for 1 to 2 minutes per side or until golden brown. Transfer the pan to the oven and roast for 15 minutes. Remove the pan from oven and let the racks cool slightly.
2Coat the lamb with 1 tablespoon of the mustard. Mix the remaining mustard with the breadcrumbs, parsley, and rosemary. Press the mixture on the lamb.
3Return the pan to the oven and roast for an additional 5 to 8 minutes, allowing the coating to form a crust. Remove the pan from the oven and allow the lamb to rest for 5 minutes.
1Carve the lamb into chops and serve with a heaping tablespoon of Almond Mint Pesto.
1Clarified butter is butter that has had the milk solids and water removed, creating a higher smoke point. It is easy to make at home but you can also find it prepared in the dairy section of some grocery stores.
