Middle Eastern lamb & feta toasts

Method

  • Heat a little oil in a large pan and gently saute the onion and garlic. Add the harissa and briefly cook to toast, continually stirring. Then add the mince with a little more oil, if necessary, and cook until the meat is sealed, breaking up with a wooden spoon as you do so.
  • Add the tomatoes, soy, sundried tomato tapenade, seasonings and ½ cup stock to the pan. Stir and bring to the boil. Then turn the heat right down and simmer for about 15-20 mins until thick and fragrant, adding more stock as needed. Taste for seasoning. 
  • Grill or toast bread.
  • To serve, place the bread on individual plates and top with the mince, a little feta and mint.
