Spiced Lamb and Pumpkin Bake

Another wintery meal for dinner over at my place. What I really like is how easy it is and it is nearly like another version of shepard's pie! The use of pumpkin adds to the sweetness and the pine nuts adds a lovely crunch to an otherwise boring dish!

We froze this and had it for dinner on a weeknight- the flavors are even better then.

Spiced Lamb and Pumpkin Bake
1 kg of pumpkin chopped
500 grams of lamb minced
1 cup of peas
1 red onion chopped
2-4 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp of cumin
1 tsp of chilli powder
1 tsp of garam masala
minced garlic


1/2 cup of milk

Preheat oven 200C.

Cook pumpkin in boiling water till soft. Mash with some milk and season. Set aside.

Meanwhile fry garlic and onion till soft. Add lamb mince and cook till it almost done. Add peas and all spices. Add a little water if needed. Cook till done (Around 10 minutes). Season. Spoon in casserole dish. Spoon mash pumpkin over it and sprinkle pine nuts. Bake for 30 minutes.

I like the use of pumpkin instead of mashed potatoes. Sure looks like a good eat. :)
