This winter comfort food comes without the refined pastry and a sneaky serve of veggies worked into the ‘crust’.


  • Reserved one-pot beef and eggplant - get the recipe, here.

  • 1/4 large cauliflower, in florets

  • 2 tsp full-cream milk, or alternative

  • 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil

  • Handful of flat leaf parsley, roughly chopped, to serve

  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste


  • 1.

    Preheat the oven to 180C.

  • 2.

    Bring a pot of salted water to the boil, then boil cauliflower for 20-30 minutes, or until soft enough to mash. Drain, and leave to cool.

  • 3.

    Transfer to a blender or food processor, along with the milk and olive oil. Blend until smooth, then season to taste.

  • 4.

    Place the tagine in a small ceramic pie/casserole dish. Pour over the cauliflower mash and bake for 20 minutes or until heated through and the top has browned slightly.

  • 5.

    Top with parsley and enjoy!


This dish is more like a single-serve shepherd’s pie than anything else, but uses up leftovers and makes for the perfect Sunday lunch.
