Moroccan Lamb Shepherd's Pie

I thought I would share with you guys this utterly delicious Gousto recipe for Moroccan Lamb Shepherd's Pie that I selected for my box the other week. I selected 2 recipes but the shepherd's pie was easily my favourite and one I will definitely be making again! 

There are so many things that make this recipe very different from you standard but I love the fact the topping is sweet potato mash, I am obsessed with the stuff! It probably takes about 40mins to cook but It's totally worth it, a great dinner to have on a Sunday if you are looking for something that isn't a traditional Sunday Dinner!! 


  • 1 Chicken stock cube 
  • 200g lamb mince
  • 3 garlic cloves 
  • 30g saltanas 
  • 1 tbsp baharat
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • Mint
  • 1 onion
  • 1tsp sumac
  • 30g pank breadcrumbs (personally I think this is too much, you'd be fine with just 15g) 
  • 300g sweet potato
  • 1tbsp balsamic vinegar 
  • Lambs Lettuce 

As you can see I have grouped the ingredients, the meat and gravy kinda stuff, the topping and the side dish! 

Moroccan Lamb Shepherd's Pie

This food should all cook together, once you have chopped up the chunks of sweet potato add them to boiling kettle water and leave them to boil on a medium heat. 

Whilst the sweet potato is doing it's thang, that's when you have to chop up the onion and garlic and start cooking the mince. Get the mince started first before adding the onion and garlic then once they have been cooking together you can add the baharat and crumble in the stock cube. Then after a couple of minutes you need to add the sultanas and 200ml of boiling water and the mint then leave it to thicken up. 

Move back over to the sweet potatoes which should now be a bit soft, you should be able to get a fork through them, when ready you drain the water then get mashing, add a little bit of salt and pepper in. Once that's ready your mince and gravy should have thickened up which means you can add it to a dish, then put the mash on top and spread it out a bit. Now you simply sprinkle some of the breadcrumbs on top with the sumac and it's ready for the over which only takes 15mins! 

For the side dish, just when you have taken the shepherd's pie out of the oven, simply toss the lambs lettuce with the balsamic vinegar and a little oil (to taste) and you are ready to eat it!! 

I loved this Morccan lamb shepherd's pie and will definitely be making it again! 

Are you a fan of shepherd's pie?
