Grate in a Sandwich
Carrots are the must have accompaniment to the Sunday roast – but they have so many other uses too! Grate them into sandwiches or coleslaw for a touch of sweetness, texture and colour. You can also roast or braise them for a sweet and tender side dish.
Fiery Jacket Potatoes Recipe
Spice up your meal times with these fiery jacket potatoes. Make them as hot as you like or serve with a spoonful of sour cream for a more mellow flavour.
Preheat the oven to 220C/ Fan 200C/450F/Gas Mark 7. Scrub the potatoes clean, then place on a baking tray. Bake for 35-40mins or until tender.
Meanwhile, Heat a large pan or wok, add the lamb mince without any extra oil, and sauté over a medium heat for 6-8mins, stirring to break up the mince, until it is nicely browned. Add the onion, garlic and pepper and sauté for 2mins.
Add the spices and carrots, cook for 1 min. Then add the tomatoes, puree and plenty of salt and pepper. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 10mins. Stir well, then simmer uncovered for a further 5mins or until the juices have thickened slightly. Adjust the seasoning.
Split the baked potatoes and spoon a little of the mince mixture into each. Serve topped with sour cream mixed with chopped coriander if liked.
