*Suitable for freezing
400g/14oz Lean Ground Lamb (Mince) - (16 syns)*
150g/5.5oz carrots, finely chopped
1 large onion, finely chopped
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
1kg/2.25lb of yukon gold potatoes (or similar potato good for mashing), peeled and quarted
chicken stock to cover
1/2 cup of frozen peas
1/2 cup of frozen sweetcorn
2 cups (480ml) of lamb stock (beef or chicken stock will work just as well)
2 tablespoons of tomato paste
splash of balsamic vinegar
splash of Worcestershire sauce (optional)
pinch of fresh thyme (or dried)
pinch of fresh rosemary (or dried)
salt and Pepper to season
cooking oil spray
fresh chopped parsley to decorate (optional)
Set the oven to 200c or 400f (gas mark 6)
Add the potatoes to a saucepan and just cover with chicken stock, bring to a boil, then allow to simmer (without lid) until stock is almost absorbed and potatoes and fork tender. Use the little bit of remaining stock that is in the pan along with the 2 eggs to mash the potatoes, until nice and smooth.
Spray a frying pan with some cooking oil spray and add the lamb mince, onion, garlic and carrots and cook till meat is browned and vegetables softened.
Add the thyme, rosemary, tomato paste, balsamic vinegar, Worcestershire sauce
Add in the lamb stock and bring to the meat mixture to the boil and then reduce to a simmer until sauce thickens. Approx 15 mins
Pour mince mixture into a oven proof dish (I used a square pyrex). Season with salt and pepper and add the frozen peas and sweetcorn.
Top with the mash, and smooth over making line marks with a fork. Season over the top with a little salt and black pepper and spray with cooking oil spray (this helps the potatoes to go lovely and golden)
Bake in oven for approx 30mins until the top is golden.
Sprinkle with a little fresh chopped parsley.
Serve with your choice of greens.
