Method

Step 1

Heat the oil in a large pan and gently fry the onion and peppers for 5-7 minutes - adding a dash of water or bone broth if necessary.

Step 2

Add the tomato puree and garlic and cook for another a minute.

Step 3

Add the lamb and cook until it starts to brown.

Step 4

Add the lentils, oregano, allspice, passata, sugar, collagen, salt and pepper and simmer for 15-20 minutes until the lentils are tender. Add a splash of water or bone broth if needed.

Step 5

Whilst simmering, pop your grill on and place your sliced aubergines and tomatoes on a baking tray and grill until charred.

Step 6

Combine the parmesan, crème fraiche, beaten egg and salt and pepper.

Step 7

Decant your meat mixture into an oven proof dish, top with the aubergine, tomato and crème fraiche mixture.

Step 8

Sprinkle over the nutmeg and a little more parmesan.

Step 9

Place under a hot grill for 3-5 minutes, until it starts to bubble and brown.
