- 5.8g (6.3g saturated)
- 38.2g (10.1g sugars)
- Olive oil for frying
- 600g potatoes, cut into rough chunks
- 2 red onions, cut into wedges
- 400g British lean beef mince
- 400g tin chopped tomatoes
- 4 tsp harissa paste
- 100g feta, crumbled
- 2 tbsp chopped fresh mixed parsley, mint and coriander
- Heat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/gas 6. Put 2 tbsp oil in a medium shallow roasting tin and put in the oven to heat up. Add the potatoes and onions to the tin, then roast for 30 minutes or until golden, turning occasionally.
- Meanwhile, heat another 1 tbsp oil in a large saucepan and brown the mince over a medium heat, then add the chopped tomatoes and 150ml cold water. Bring up to the boil, then reduce to a simmer. Stir in the harissa, season, then simmer gently for 20 minutes.
- Heat the grill to medium, spoon the beef mixture over the potatoes, sprinkle over the feta, then grill for 5 minutes. Sprinkle with the fresh herbs to serve
