1 Prep

Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan. Peel and mince the garlic. Peel and slice the shallots. Slice both types of the zucchinis lengthwise into thin strips (use a peeler to get them extra thin!). Grate the Gruyere cheese.

2 Fry beef

Heat a pan over a medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil. Once hot, add the shallots, garlic and a pinch of salt. Fry for 3 min. Add the beef mince, Worcestershire sauce and marmite. Fry for 5 min or until starting to brown.

3 Season zucchini

Place the zucchini slices in a bowl with a drizzle of oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Add the dried parsley. Mix well.

4 Bake

Place 1/3 of the zucchini slices in a baking dish. Top with 1/3 of the beef mince and 1/3 of the cheese. Repeat until you run out of the zucchini and beef mince. Reserve enough cheese to top off the gratin. Bake for 20-25 min or until the zucchini is softened.

5 Serve

Slice and serve the gratin. Toss the rocket salad in a drizzle of olive oil and the Balsamic vinegar. Serve the salad alongside the gratin.

Tips for fussy eaters

Rocket can taste bitter to sensitive palates. Why not swap it for little gem or iceberg lettuce?

Pro tip

Don't overcrowd your pan! Otherwise you'll end up stewing, not frying your beef mince.
