1 Tbsp olive oil
1 red onion, finely chopped
500g beef mince
2 Tbsp Moroccan seasoning
1 clove garlic, crushed
400g can diced tomatoes
1 cup instant couscous
½ cup coriander, chopped
6 sheets filo pastry
30g butter, melted
1 Tbsp dukkah (see Cook's Tip)
2 carrots, finely chopped
Preheat oven to moderate, 180°C.
In a large ovenproof frying pan, heat oil on medium. Saute onion 3-4 minutes until tender.
Increase heat to high. Add mince and brown 4-5 minutes, breaking up lumps. Add carrot, spice and garlic and saute 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
Stir in tomatoes and bring to boil. Simmer, uncovered, 8-10 minutes, until thickened.
Meanwhile, prepare couscous following packet instructions. Add coriander. Spoon couscous over mince, smoothing top.
Layer 2 filo sheets together, brushing each with butter. Cut into quarters. Scrunch over couscous. Repeat with remaining filo and butter until couscous is covered. Sprinkle with dukkah.
Bake 15-20 minutes until pastry is crisp and golden. Serve hot.
To make dukkah, combine 2 Tbsp each toasted, chopped hazelnuts and toasted sesame seeds, 1 Tbsp ground coriander, 2 tsp ground cumin and 2 tsp sea salt flakes. Mix well and store in an airtight jar in a cool, dry place.
