For the mashed potato

  • 1.8kg potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 200ml milk
  • 25g butter
  • 200g cheddar cheese, grated
  • Freshly grated nutmeg
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Fry together

  • Rapeseed oil
  • 2 onions, finely chopped
  • 3 carrots, chopped or grated
  • 3 celery sticks, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • Other vegetables, if you wish

Then add, to make a sauce:

  • 800ml to 1L (low salt) vegetable stock (2 stock cubes)
  • 142g tomato puree (small tin)
  • 5 tbsp salt reduced soy sauce
  • 4 tbsp (vegetarian) Worcestershire sauce
  • Thyme sprigs and 2 bay leaves
  • 1kg Quorn mince
  • 300g frozen petit pois
  • 3 tbsp cornflour (mixed with 3 tbsp cold water)


  1. Boil the potatoes in salted water for 20 minutes until tender

  2. While boiling, fry the vegetables, adding them to the pan in the order listed.

  3. Then add all the sauce ingredients except for the corn flour. Once simmered for 5 minutes (or longer if you have time), add the corn flour and simmer until thick.

  4. Preheat the oven to 200C. Make the mashed potato by mashing the drained potatoes with the other ingredients.

  5. Put the sauce in the bottom of an ovenproof dish, add the mash on top. You can sprinkle with some reserved cheese if you like. Bake for around 20 minutes, until boiling and golden brown on top. Alternatively, freeze and defrost before baking or bake from frozen which will take longer to cook.

Made this following the recipe, with a slight variation, I only used 1tbsp of soy and 1 of Worcester sauce due to saltiness and added 1tbsp of mushroom stock/sauce....scrumptious. Making it again tonight.
