Ingredients

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil, 20 mL
  • 1 onion , 160 g finely chopped
  • 400 g lamb mince
  • 2 tbsp plain flour or alternative, 20 g
  • 1 cup diced carrot, 120 g
  • 2 diced celery sticks
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 3 tbsp tomato paste, 60 g
  • 2 beef stock cubes
  • 300 mL water
  • 3 scoops AdVital Powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Mashed potatoes (see our Mashed Potatoes recipe), see our Mashed Potatoes Recipe
  • Optional: Generous splash of Worcestershire Sauce

Instructions
 

Directions

  • Make the mashed potatoes.
  • Preheat an oven to 200°C (conventional) or 180°C (fan-forced).
  • Heat the oil in a large saucepan over a medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook it by continuously stirring for 5 minutes or until it becomes soft. Add the carrot and celery, and cook for a further 5 minutes.
  • Add the lamb mince to the saucepan and cook it over a low heat for 5 minutes (or until the mince changes colour). Use a spatula to break up any clumps.
  • Add the flour and stir the mixture for 2 minutes (or until the flour becomes well-combined). Add the tomato paste, stock cubes, and water. Cook the mixture for 30 minutes, and thicken the sauce as necessary by reducing it.
  • Once you’ve finished cooking the mixture, remove it from the heat, stir in the AdVital Powder and peas until they’re well-combined, and then season to taste.
  • Place the lamb mixture into a 2L casserole dish and spread the mashed potatoes evenly over the top. Bake it for 25 minutes (or until mash becomes golden). If you’re using cheese, sprinkle it over the mashed potato during the last 5 minutes of baking. Serve immediately.

Notes

Hints and Tips:
  • Sprinkle the mashed potato with a quarter-cup of grated cheese.
  • Substitute the vegetables with any other leftovers you may have in the fridge. After all, that’s how shepherd's pie was invented!
  • Use beef instead of lamb to create a cottage pie.
  • Try a pastry top instead of mashed potatoes.
  • Substitute the plain mash with one of our other delicious mash recipes, like .
Low FODMAP Diet Tips:
  • Leave out the onion. Add fresh or dried herbs such as thyme or rosemary for extra flavour.
  • Use gluten free flour.
  • Choose stock free of gluten, onion and garlic.
  • Choose a lower lactose cheese.
