Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Lamb & Mint Pie, Sautéed Courgette & Leeks

Preheat the oven to 240ºC/ 220ºC (fan)/ 475ºF/ Gas 9

Boil a kettle

Peel and chop the potatoes into rough, bite-sized pieces

Add the chopped potatoes to a pot of boiled water with a pinch of salt over a high heat and cook for 12-15 min or until fork-tender

Once cooked, drain and return them to the pot to steam dry

2 Lamb & Mint Pie, Sautéed Courgette & Leeks

While the potatoes are cooking, peel and finely dice the brown onion[s]

Top, tail, peel and finely dice the carrot[s]

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium-high heat

Once hot, add the diced onion and carrot and cook for 3-5 min or until starting to soften

3 Lamb & Mint Pie, Sautéed Courgette & Leeks

Meanwhile, grate the cheddar cheese

Dissolve the Knorr beef stock cube[s] in 200ml [350ml] boiled water

Once the onion and carrot has softened, add the lamb mince and cook for 4-5 min further, breaking it up with a wooden spoon as you go

4 Lamb & Mint Pie, Sautéed Courgette & Leeks

Add the grated cheese, Dijon mustard and a knob of butter to the drained potatoes and mash until smooth

Season with a pinch of salt and pepper

5 Lamb & Mint Pie, Sautéed Courgette & Leeks

Once the vegetables have softened, add 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] flour to the pan and stir until fully combined

Stir in the beef stock and the mint sauce and cook for 1-2 min further or until the sauce has thickened – this is your lamb mixture

6 Lamb & Mint Pie, Sautéed Courgette & Leeks

Add the lamb mixture (reserve the pan for later!) to an oven-proof dish and evenly top with the mashed potato

Tip: Gently run a fork over the mash to create a crispy top!

Put the dish in the oven for 15-20 min or until golden and crispy – this is your minty shepherd's pie

7 Lamb & Mint Pie, Sautéed Courgette & Leeks

While the shepherd's pie is cooking, chop the leek[s] in half lengthways, then wash to remove any grit from between the leaves

Top, tail and slice finely

Cut the courgette[s] into batons

Wipe the pan clean and return it to a medium-low heat with a drizzle of olive oil

Once hot, add the sliced leek and courgette batons with a pinch of salt and pepper and cook for 8-10 min or until soft and caramelised
