  • 500G Beef Mince (5% fat for healthier option)
  • 1 White Onion
  • 250G Mushrooms
  • 1 Carrot
  • 1 Stick of Celery
  • 1 Teaspoon Oil
  • 390G Passata
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt & Pepper
  • 1 Beef Stock Cube
  • 1 & 1/2 Teaspoon Tomato Pureé
  • 1 & 1/2 Teaspoon Basil (Fresh or dried)


  1. Place oil in large pan and bring to heat, once hot, add finely chopped onions, carrot, celery and mushrooms (mushrooms can be sliced or chunked, however you prefer).

  2. Once all veg has sweated off/softened, add beef mince (making sure to break apart with hands for more even cooking), add salt and pepper at this point too.

  3. Once meat has fully browned off, add tomato pureé & cook for a further 2 minutes. After this add passata & beef stock, stir through, leave to simmer for 15 minutes stirring occasionally (The longer you leave it, the thicker and more flavoursome it will become).

  4. Add basil 2 minutes before serving and stir through.
