INGREDIENTS

1 litre cold water

200g MAGGI® Mashed Potato Flakes

2 tbsp. vegetable oil

1 medium (150g) onion, chopped

50g red lentils

180g carrot, peeled and diced

180g swede, peeled and diced

20g MAGGI® Vegetable Bouillon

1 bay leaf 

600ml water

75g MAGGI® Rich & Rustic Tomato Sauce

600g Quorn mince

75g MAGGI® Original Vegetarian Gravy

250ml cold water

75g peas

100g cheddar cheese, grated

METHOD

Prep: 25 minutes. Cook: 35 minutes.

  1. Add a litre of cold water to a mixing bowl then whisk in the potato flakes. Leave to reconstitute for 2 minutes and then whisk again for a further minute. Set aside.
  2. Heat the oil in a large pan then add the onions and cook until soft.
  3. Add the red lentils, carrots, swede, vegetable concentrate, bay leaf and 600ml of water and simmer until the vegetables are cooked.
  4. Add the MAGGI Rich & Rustic and Quorn mince. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to a low simmer.
  5. Whisk the gravy powder and cold water in a large jug to form a smooth paste.
  6. Stir the gravy paste into the Quorn mix, followed by the peas. Heat until simmering – at this stage you may need to add a little water to achieve the right consistency.
  7. Place mix into an ovenproof dish then spoon or pipe the mashed potato on top. Use the tines of a fork to create texture on the surface of the mash and sprinkle with the cheese.
  8. Bake in an oven pre-heated to 190°C/ 375°F/ Gas Mark 5 for 25 to 35 minutes until cooked through and the mash topping is golden brown.

CHEF'S TIP

Try adding spring onion to the mash. This recipe also works perfectly with minced beef
