Premium tip
Add red lentils to the filling to help the meat stretch further, provide lovely texture and boost the fibre content.



  • STEP 1

    Heat 1½ tbsp olive oil in a large pan over a medium heat and cook the onions for 2 mins. Add the beef mince, turn up the heat to medium-high and cook for 5 mins, stirring occasionally until the meat is browned.

  • STEP 2

    Add the carrots and garlic, and cook for 2 mins. Stir in the stock cubes and 750ml boiled water. Bring to the boil, then stir in the lentils and brown sauce. Cover, reduce the heat and simmer gently for 20-30 mins until the filling is tender and thickened – remove the lid halfway through the cooking time if the mixture needs to reduce more.

  • STEP 3

    Meanwhile, cook the sweet potatoes in a large pan of boiling water until tender. Drain and mash until smooth. Beat in the remaining olive oil and the spring onions.

  • STEP 4

    Heat the grill to high. Spoon two-thirds of the filling into the base of an ovenproof dish and top with a third of the sweet potato mash. The leftover mince and potato will be used on day 4. Slide under the grill for 5 mins until browned in spots, then divide between plates and serve with brown sauce and some greens.
