  2. Heat a lightly oiled, large, non-stick frying over a high heat. Add mince, onion and garlic. Cook for 8-10 minutes, using a wooden spoon to break up mince, until browned all over. Add oregano, allspice and tomato paste. Stir over heat a further minute.
  3. Stir in 1 ½ cups water and stock cube. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat, simmer uncovered for 5 minutes. Stir in zucchini and beans. Simmer for a further 5-8 minutes, or until thick.
  4. Combine yoghurt with cucumber and mint in a small bowl.
  5. Divide pita crisps and mince mixture between 4 shallow bowls. Serve topped with yoghurt and tomatoes. Garnish with mint leaves, if desired.
