In a mixing bowl, combine the lamb, 1 tablespoon of the oil, the rosemary, thyme and a pinch of salt. Marinate for 10 minutes.

In a smoking hot wok, add the remaining 3 tablespoons of the oil followed by the lamb. Wok toss for 1 minute, then add the artichoke, carrots, spring onion, tomato and zucchini, tossing as you add them, and cook for 1 minute more.
