ready in 1 hour 30 mins
What you need:
500g lean beef mince (5% fat or less)
1 onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2 red peppers, deseeded and finely sliced
2 tsp ground coriander
2 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp hot smoked paprika
2 x 400g cans chopped tomatoes
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 beef stock cube
8 small sweet potatoes
160g reduced-fat Cheddar, grated
chopped gherkins, to serve
fat-free natural Greek-style yogurt, to serve
For the coleslaw:
½ white cabbage, shredded
2 carrots, coarsely grated
1 red onion, finely sliced
60g fat-free natural yogurt
1 small garlic clove, crushed
juice of ½ lemon
What you do:
1. Preheat your oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6. Place a large, shallow, lidded, flameproof casserole dish over a medium-high heat. Dry-fry the mince for 2-3 minutes until browned, breaking it up with a wooden spoon. Drain off any liquid, then add the onion, garlic, peppers, spices, tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce and the stock cube with 200ml water.
2. Bring to a simmer and cover. Place in the oven and cook for 1 hour, or until reduced and bubbling. At the same time, put the sweet potatoes on a non-stick baking tray and bake for 50-60 minutes, or until soft.
3. Meanwhile, to make the coleslaw, mix together all the ingredients. Season to taste and set aside.
4. Set aside the cooked potatoes. Heat your grill to high. Remove the lid from the casserole dish, evenly scatter over the cheese, then grill for 3-4 minutes, or until the cheese has melted.
5. Scatter over the gherkins. Divide between 4 plates. Serve with 2 sweet potatoes per person, some coleslaw and a dollop of yogurt.
