Sweet Pot Cottage Pie

cottage pie


500 grams of beef mince

1 tablespoon of coconut oil

3 cloves of garlic

1 heaped tablespoon of fresh thyme

1 heaped tablespoon of fresh rosemary

2 tablespoons of tomato puree

2 teaspoons of smoked paprika

2 medium onions

2 large carrots

4 sweet potatoes (medium)

1 tablespoon of butter


Preheat the oven to 180°C. Peel and chop the sweet potato. Steam or boil the potatoes until soft (approximately 20 minutes). In a separate pan, heat the coconut oil and cook the onions, mince, carrots and garlic until brown. Once the mince is brown and the carrots are soft, add the herbs, smoked paprika, tomato puree and seasoning. Cook for another 5-8 minutes and then remove from the heat. Once the sweet potato is cooked, drain and mash with the butter. Place the meat into a baking dish (approximately 9 x 13 inch) and evenly spread. Then add the sweet potato on top ensuring there are no gaps, covering the meat fully. Place in the oven and cook for 30-40 minutes until the potato has turned brown. Enjoy

before&afterThank you for the very useful time we’ve had this year. As you know, when I came to see you, I had been training hard for a while and achieved significant weight loss (starting at 19 stone).
