  • 1tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 450g lean steak mince
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1tbsp chicken seasoning
  • 2tbsp mild Madras curry powder
  • 400ml beef stock
  • 400g can tomatoes, chopped
  • 2tsp thyme leaves
  • 300g sweet potatoes, peeled
  • 400g can red kidney beans, rinsed
  • 100g baby spinach leaves
  • 1 ripe avocado, peeled, stone removed and sliced
  • Dash of hot pepper sauce, optional, to serve




  1. Heat a large frying pan on a medium high heat; brown the mince in batches, making sure not to overcrowd the pan. Remove and set to one side. Add the sunflower oil in and add the onion and cook gently for 5 minutes, or until they have softened. Add the garlic and soften. Add the mince back in. Sprinkle over the chicken seasoning and curry powder. Cook for a couple of minutes until fragrant and incorporated throughout the mince.
  2. Add most of the stock, tomatoes and thyme leaves. Simmer for 20 minutes, until the meat is tender, adding a little more stock if needed.
  3. Meanwhile, cook the sweet potatoes in boiling salted water for 20 minutes until tender. Drain and slice.
  4. Warm the red kidney beans in a bowl in the microwave on high for 2 minutes.
  5. Divide the mince between 4 bowls. Add the kidney beans, sweet potatoes, a handful of spinach and the avocado. Sprinkle over a dash of hot pepper sauce if you want a little kick.
