Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 3 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 3-4cm cubes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 can brown lentils, drained and rinsed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin (optional, adults)
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 3 teaspoons Bombay curry powder (optional, adults)
  • 500g lamb mince
  • 200g green beans, ends trimmed and cut into 1cm pieces
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 1 can tomatoes
  • 1 egg, whisked
  • 1 sweet gem lettuce, broken into leaves
  • 1 Lebanese cucumber, diced
  • salad dressing of your choice


  1. Preheat oven to 220 degrees C. Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil.
  2. Cook sweet potato in the pot of boiling water for 10-12 minutes, until very soft.
  3. Heat olive oil in a large fry-pan on medium-high heat. Add the garlic and onion and cook for 2 minutes, until softened. Add the cumin, ginger and Bombay curry powder and cook, stirring constantly for a further minute, until fragrant.
  4. Add the lamb mince and cook, stirring with a wooden spoon to break up the mince, for 5-6 minutes, until browned. Stir through the green beans, carrot and can of tomatoes and cook for 4-5 minutes, until the beans are tender. Allow to cool slightly, stir through the whisked egg.
  5. Drain the sweet potato and roughly mash with olive oil and lentils. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  6. Pour lamb filling into an oven-proof pie or casserole dish and top with the mashed sweet potato lentil mixture. Bake for 15-20 minutes until the pie is bubbly and the sweet potato starts to colour.
  7. While the pie is cooking, toss the salad ingredients together.
  8. TO SERVE: Spoon pie onto plates and serve salad on the side.

  • Sounds really interesting. Id love to give this one a try.


  • I’m going to print this one out and try it. I haven’t eaten lentils before, I try to avoid them, but in the mix I think this will be fine!


  • I love the addition of the lentils, sounds wonderful.


  • sounds really delicious. I can’t wait to try it.


  • What a tasty and simple new recipe for lamb. Can’t wait to try this. Just need to get some sweet potato and dinner is all set

  • I would like this without the lamb :)


  • We are not big lamb eaters in this house… so will urge someone else to make this (just to try it first).


  • sounds interesting. I think I would like it but not sure if the kids and hubby would.


  • Interesting. I like parts of it, but not sure. Perhaps if someone made it for me first!!

  • Not one for me but thanks for sharing.


  • i am worried that this is a little too advanced for my cooking skills!


  • This looks delicious but a bit complicated. Might try it on a day when I have some extra time!
