Steps to make Family favourite shepherds pie:

  1. Heat the oil in a large pan (oven proof if possible to save on washing up!) Add the veg and cook for 10-15 mins until lovely and soft..
  2. Add the beef mince and cook for 5 minutes or so until browned. Now add the Quorn mince and cook for a few minutes..
  3. Sprinkle over the Oxo cube and paprika and stir into the mince. Add the balsamic vinegar and stir again. Add a few tbsps of stock and cook for a minute or two to allow the mince to absorb the flavour..
  4. Sprinkle over the flour and stir well into the mince mix. Gradually add half of the remaining stock and simmer for a few minutes. The liquid should start to thicken. At this point, add the marmite and the tomato puree and stir again..
  5. Add a little more of the stock and keep adding until the "gravy" reaches the desired consistency. You may not need all the stock..
  6. Season the mixture with salt and pepper and take off the heat. If you have time, let the mince mixture and the mash cool a little as it's easier to build the pie when its had time to cool down..
  7. When ready, pour the mince mix into a large ovenproof dish. Spoon the mashed potato on the top and fluff up with a fork..
  8. Cook in a preheated oven at 190˚ for about 25-35 minutes. (If you have left the mixture to cool completely beforehand, reduce the heat of the oven to 180˚ and cook for 40 – 45 minutes.).
  9. Serve with some fresh green veg whilst piping hot. Try not to fall out over the crispy bits!.

Meanwhile, in a large frying pan, heat the olive oil and fry the mince, stirring, until browned all over. Pour over the water and stir to combine. Add in the peas, then top with your boiled and crushed new potatoes and top with the grated cheddar. Shepherd's pie is firm family favourite when it comes to comfort food.
