Serves 4


  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 200g extra lean beef mince (5% fat), raw
  • 6 teaspoons Tesco Finest ras el hanout
  • 120g spinach
  • 4 individual Weight Watchers love fibre pitta breads
  • 130g tomato based pasta sauce
  • 30g light feta cheese
  • 2 medium carrots, raw, cut into matchsticks
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika, level
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice, fresh
  • 10 sprigs coriander, fresh
  • 1 tablespoon currants, heaped


    1. Preheat the oven to 220°C, fan 200°C, gas mark 6. Heat the oil in a large nonstick frying pan over a high heat. Add the mince and cook, stirring to break up any lumps, for 3 minutes or until browned. Add the ras-el-hanout and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds or until fragrant. Stir in the spinach until just wilted.
    2. Put the pittas on a large baking tray. Spread with the pasta sauce, spoon over the mince and scatter over the feta. Bake for 8 minutes or until the pittas are crisp.
    3. Meanwhile, combine the carrots, paprika, lemon juice, coriander and currants in a large bowl. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Serve the pittas topped with the carrot salad.
