Shepherdess pie is a real favourite here. It’s probably one of the cheapest meals we eat on a regular basis. Another winter staple with just about every meal is cabbage. This poor specimen had languished in the bottom of the fridge and had gone a bit yellow but waste not want not. Here’s my very easy recipe.
1 onion chopped
1/2 head of celery – finely diced
3 large carrots – finely diced
1 cup of lentil
1 tbsp of oil
2 cloves of Garlic – crushed
Tin of haricot beans or a tin of baked beans.
3/4 litre of veg stock
Seasoning – I add a big splash of Worcestershire sauce and plenty of salt and pepper.
All all the ingredients except the stock and mashed potatoes to a pot and sauté. Add the stock and cook until the lentils and carrots are soft.
Spoon into a baking dish, cover in mashed potato and placed under a searingly hot grill.
Serve with anything you like. On a cold, can’t be bothered sort of nights, a tin of carrots and peas and some limp cabbage will do.
So cheap and simple but we love it.
