Deliciously comforting and satisfying, this firm family favourite also contains two of your five-a-day! Let it bubble away in the oven, or speed things along and simply serve the cheddar mash and mince together without baking, in a relaxed 'Open Cottage Pie' style. (Naturally gluten-free, but unsuitable for coeliacs).

Once boiling, cook for 15 min or until fork-tender

Meanwhile, peel and dice the red onion[s]

Once hot, add the diced carrot, diced onion and dried bay leaf[ves] with a pinch of salt

Cook for 5 min, or until softened and starting to colour – this is your carrot mixture

Meanwhile, dissolve the beef stock cube[s] in 2 tbsp [4 tbsp] boiled water

Grate the cheddar

Trim and chop the spring onion[s] finely

5  Cheesy Cottage Pie

Add the beef mince and chopped garlic to the carrot mixture and increase the heat to high

Cook for 5 min further, or until the mince has browned, breaking it up as you go

6  Cheesy Cottage Pie

Add the beef stock, tomato ketchup and Henderson's Relish to the mince and cook for 4 min

Add the chopped tomatoes and cook for 5 min or until it reaches a bolognese-type consistency

Taste for seasoning, adding more salt and pepper if needed

Remove the bay leaf[ves]
