Comfort food is absolutely just that – comforting. On these wintry nights I sometimes find myself craving something starchy, sugary, carborific, and generally just no good at all. Enter paleo cottage pie.
It’s quick (ish) and not at all fussy or complicated.
For the mince:
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
Handful of mushrooms, chopped
(I use a food processor and just bang the lot in and it’s done in about 3 seconds)
Salt and pepper
Dried origanum (you can use other herbs)
1/2 cup Tomato passata
What you need to do
1. Fry the veggies until softened.
2. Add mince. Brown.
3. Add spices and cook for about a minute or two.
4. Add tomato. Cook for about 20 minutes.
Sweet potato mash
For the sweet potato topping: just boil/steam 3 medium sweet potatoes, remove from heat and mash. You can add a bit of ghee if you’d like.
Layer mince and potato. Sprinkle nutritional yeast flakes (if using) – put in the oven until it’s all browned, usually 30 minutes or so. Enjoy!
