I’m getting a bit nervous about this potluck thing tonight, I am surprisingly socially awkward.
Anyway, as promised, I’ve prepared a dish that is a cross between lasagne and shepherds/cottage pie. You’ll have to excuse the images, blogger is bitch and I can’t rotate the images.
My last post gave the link to the base recipe – but here is the slapdash version I prepared!
For the filling:
500g minced lamb
Garlic (I had some left over roasted garlic paste, so used that. Everything is better with garlic, no?)
Ras El Hanout
and a bit of tomato paste for that rich taste.
Basically I just cooked the crap out of all of it – I’m sure you know how to do that?!
Then I chargrilled some capsicums ( I had 6 small caps and grilled them all) and steamed up about 600g of frozen cauli and smooshed that all up. I didn’t add anything to the cauli although in the past I have added coconut milk.
I added two eggs to the mince filling and then started assembling the dish. It is in the fridge now and will be popped in the oven for a while to cook it further and brown it up. I’ll do that right before I leave for the potluck. *eeps! Nervous!*

|From the side, you can sort of see the layering.|
I’m also making some more bone broth and I’m currently roasting some pork, followed by lamb. Oh I’m also making this amazing chicken from you-know-where, which is a favourite in my house.
It’s been about two weeks since I’ve done my Sunday cook-up and I feel so much better for doing it.
Wish me luck for tonight and let’s hope I don’t make a dick outta myself. At least the food will be good ;p
