This Lamb and Zucchini Mince with Cous Cous is a dish our cook at work used to make all the time and I loved it (I don’t eat much red meat but when I was pregnant I couldn’t get enough of it!). I don’t recall how to make it exactly so this is my take on it.

You can certainly add more vegetables to this dish if desired. You can serve this on cous cous, pasta, rice or even zoodles.

The sauce is quite runny after cooking but I like this because it adds flavour to the cous cous. It will thicken upon standing. Speaking of sauce, be sure to use good quality stock and worstershire sauce for this dish.

This is a chunkier mince style dish.
