Day 52: July Food – Courgettes with Spicy Lamb Mince (TYOH)

Serves 2        




  • 2 large courgettes or 4 smaller courgettes 
  • 500g lamb mince 
  • 1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil 
  • 1 red onion, chopped 
  • 2 tsp. ground cumin 
  • 2 tsp. ground coriander 
  • ½ tsp. ground cinnamon 
  • 1 fresh green chilli, finely chopped 
  • 5cm piece fresh ginger, grated 
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed 
  • 500ml chicken or lamb stock 
  • 200ml tomato passata 




  1. Preheat the oven to 180C. 
  2. Add the olive oil to the pan and heat. Cook the onion over a low heat for 10 minutes or until softened. Stir in the spices, chillies, ginger and garlic, then cook for 2 minutes. 
  3. Fry the mince, breaking it up with a fork or wooden spoon as it browns. 
  4. Pour in the stock and passata. Bring to the boil, then turn down the heat and simmer for 25-30minutes until the sauce has thickened. 
  5. Meanwhile, cut the courgettes lengthwise and scoop out the middles. Place on an oiled baking sheet and bake for 20-30 minutes, depending on size. 
  6. Once the sauce has thickened, remove the courgettes from the oven, place onto 2 plates and fill each courgette half with the spicy lamb mince. 
  7. Serve with a crisp green salad, dressed simply with lemon juice and extra-virgin olive oil.
