Pre-heat your oven to 200 degrees. Peel and finely chop the onion. Peel and crush the garlic cloves (you can use a garlic press if you have one!). Separate the coriander leaves from the stalks. Chop the leaves roughly and finely chop the stalks. Tip: We do this so we can cook the leaves and stalks separately for the best depth of flavour!


Heat 1 tbsp of olive oil in a large frying pan and sweat the onion for 5 mins or until translucent. Add the lamb mince to the pan and cook until nicely browned. Add the smoked paprika, garlic, coriander stalks and season with ¼ tsp of salt and a good grind of black pepper. Cook for a further minute then pour in the tomato passata.


Stir in the beef stock pot and add 100ml of water. Reduce the heat to low and cook for 15 mins or until the meat sauce has reduced by half. Then stir in the chopped coriander leaves and keep to one side.


Whilst the lamb is simmering away, prepare the sweet potato and courgettes. Cut the sweet potato(skin-on!) widthways into ½cm thick round slices. Chop the ends off the courgettes then cut them widthways into ½cm thick round slices.


To assemble the hotpot, use a deep baking oven dish approximately the size of an A4 sheet of paper. LH: Arrange the courgette slices on the bottom of the dish and season with a pinch of salt.


Spoon over the lamb mix and then top with the sliced sweet potato. Season with a pinch of salt and drizzle over 1 tbsp of olive oil.


Bake on the middle shelf of the the oven for 25 mins or until the sweet potato is cooked through.


Once baked, move the hotpot to the top shelf of the oven or under the grill if you have one. Grill until the sweet potato is nice and golden brown. Tip: This should take about 5 mins. Serve immediately and enjoy!
