Lamb, Chickpea & Sweet Potato Tray Bake

A cosy, fragrant tin roast that bakes tender lamb mince and sweet potatoes in a baharat-spiced tomato sauce with a hearty mix of chickpeas, onions and baby leaf spinach, topped with tangy crumbles of feta.


  • 2 onions
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 750g sweet potatoes
  • 500g lamb mince
  • 1 tbsp baharat
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 50g baby leaf spinach
  • 400g tin of chickpeas
  • 690ml passata
  • 120g feta
  • A handful of flat leaf parsley

Total: 1 hr 10 mins - Tin Tip: We recommend using your largest roasting tin for this recipe. If you think it looks a little overcrowded, divide the ingredients between a couple of tins – this way the roast will cook more evenly. The tin placed lower in the oven will need a little longer cooking time, or you can swap the tins round halfway.
