Cook some basmati rice until it's just short of done. Season it reasonably then put in a olive-oiled pan. Saute some diced onion and carrot in a bit of olive oil. Add ground beef and salt and let the beef start to brown. Add diced zucchini, oregano, dry vermouth, a couple dashes of Maggi (or soy sauce) and a good amount of prepared mustard. Simmer a bit then adjust seasoning. Top the rice with the meat and vegetable mixture. Top with grated gruyere. Bake at 200C for 10-15 minutes, until the cheese is brown and bubbly.
Serve with the requisite green salad.
