Cottage Pie


A twist to the traditional cottage pie, this recipe uses sweet potato instead of potatoes. Sweet potatoes are a good source of iron, magnesium,  potassium and vitamin B6, C and D.  I loved this alternative.


500g mince meat

1 tbsp. olive oil

1 sweet potato

400g Bolognese  sauce



Preheat oven to 220ºC.

Chop sweet potatoes and put in a pan of cold water.  Boil for 15-20 minutes or until you can mash potato with the back of a spoon.  Once cooled mash potato.

Remove another pan, add olive oil, when the oil is heated add meat and cook for a few minutes or until brown.

Add sauce and bring to the boil.  Cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until sauce has reduced.

Put meat in ramekins dish and top with sweet potato.  Bake for 20 minutes or top is crusty.
