Sweet Potato Shepherds Pie
Ingredients (4 Servings):
8 x Sweet Potatoes
2 x Carrots, chopped
6 x Mushrooms, thinly sliced
1 x Onion, chopped
600g Mince (Use half turkey and half beef, or chickpeas)
2 tbsp Tomato Purée
1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
55g Chilli Picante ProMix
Sprinkle of parmesan
1 tsp coconut oil
1 pinch Salt
1 pinch Black Pepper
1. Melt some coconut oil in a large non-stick pan over a medium heat. Add the carrots, onion and mushrooms and cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Increase the heat, add the mince and fry for a further 3 to 4 minutes, until it has browned.
2. Stir in the stock, tomato purée, Worcestershire sauce and some seasoning. Gently bubble for 15 to 20 minutes, until the mince is completely browned and the sauce has thickened. Pour into the base of a pie dish and set aside.
3. Meanwhile, peel the sweet potatoes and cut into chunks. Place in a pan of water and cook for 25 to 30 minutes, until softened, then drain. Mash and season with a little salt and pepper.
4. Spoon the mash onto the mince and sprinkle with some Chilli Picante Promix and parmeson and cook in the oven for approximately 30 minutes at 180C fan for 40 mins, until bubbling and golden brown. Serve immediately.
This is a delicious warming and hearty meal that’s great for a cold Sunday evening. It’s dead easy to make, even for beginners. The Chilli Picante ProMix adds some great texture and taste to the topping. Using half turkey mince and half regular mince is a great idea, as it makes for a leaner dish.
