Moroccan Shepherd’s Pie

Shepherd’s Pie is a great comfort food, but this version is a little more exotic – enjoy.

2 handfuls green beans, chopped
Grated Parmesan cheese

Cook garlic and onion in a frypan with the oil until onion becomes transparent. Add mince and cook until browned. Add carrot, beans, stock and flour and mix well. Simmer until mixture thickens. Add chickpeas and zucchini then cook for another few minutes.

    This is NOTHING like Moroccan food,to make it a bit more authentic perhaps add some moroccan spices

    You're right Chrissy. The above pie sounds good for a winter's night, but it isn't remotely Moroccan! A bowl of Harira is a classic Moroccan dish with all the typical ingredients you would expect.

    I haven't even tried it, adding chick peas does not make it Moroccan, it needs spices.
