    1-2 tbsp olive oil
    1 large onion, chopped
    2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    500g pack essential Waitrose Lamb Mince
    3 Waitrose Classic Vine Tomatoes
    1 Oxo Garden Vegetables Stock Pot
    1 tsp dried oregano or mint

    1. Heat a splash of oil in a large saucepan and cook the onion and garlic for 5 minutes until softened. Add the lamb and cook for a further 4-5 minutes until browned. Chop 1 of the tomatoes, stir into the lamb and onion mixture and cook for 2 minutes until pulpy. Add the stock pot, dried herbs and 400ml boiling water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 20 minutes.

    3. Dissolve the cornflour in a little cold water and stir into the lamb mixture. Simmer for 1-2 minutes, then transfer to a large ovenproof dish. Stir in the olives and ¾ of the feta. Thinly slice the remaining tomatoes and lay on top of the mixture followed by the sliced potatoes. Brush the top with a little oil and scatter over the reserved feta. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Serve with greens.
