Ingredients
 

  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 4 medium onions, finely chopped
  • 200 g lamb mince (5% fat)
  • 200 g chestnut mushrooms, very finely chopped (I use a Magimix)
  • 2 x 400g canned or tetra pack cooked green lentils, well drained
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 2 tbsp tomato purée
  • 1 pinch dried thyme
  • 2 tbsp Bovril or Marmite
  • 300 mls water
  • 10 g vegetable stock cube (low salt)
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper

For the Mash

  • 200 g potatoes
  • 500 g sweet potatoes
  • 1 small cauliflower, chopped into small chunks
  • 150 mls hot milk, approx.
  • 50 g butter or olive oil
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper

Instructions
 

  • Heat the oil and add the mushrooms cook for 15 minutes to reduce the moisture.
  • Then add the onions, mince and lentils and break up well.
  • Cook until all the moisture has evaporated.
  • Add the flour mix well, and continue to cook until the flour browns well on the bottom of the pan.
  • Add the tomato puree, thyme, Marmite or Bovril and enough water to just cover the meat.
  • Season well with pepper (check the salt) and cook for 20-25 minutes gently or the flour will catch stirring occasionally.
  • The mix should be fairly thick, then pour or spoon into a baking dish and leave to cool.
  • Boil both the potatoes together. Once cooked add the cauliflower and cook for a further 10 minutes, then drain well.
  • Mash everything together really well.
  • Whisk the hot milk, butter or oil into the mash and season well with salt and pepper.
  • The mash should not be too creamy but soft.
  • Spoon onto the cooled, set mince and fluff up with a fork.
  • When ready, re-heat in a moderate oven for 20-25 minutes until golden and slightly crunchy.
  • Serve with microwave spring green wedges and peas.
