Once mince is browned, add tomato purée, apple and carrots and bring to the boil. Simmer for 20 minutes. Stir in lemon juice and mint and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Allow to cool, then spoon into a greased ovenproof dish. 3. Brush sheets of pastry with melted butter, then crumple them gently. Place on top of mince mixture, making sure that the whole surface is covered. Brush again with butter. Bake in preheated 180 ºC oven for 20 to 25 minutes until golden and crisp.
