Slimming World Cottage pie

Cottage pie is another family favourite and a pretty quick dinner and always a good one to prepare in advance and just reheat after work. The only difference between cottage pie and shepherds pie is that shepherds pie is made with minced lamb and cottage pie is made with minced beef. Its a pretty economical dish and low in syns for slimming world but full of flavour when made this way.

For speed today I used a half a pack of frozen chopped mixed vegetables but if you want to just use chopped onions, carrots, celery, leeks whatever vegetables you like the more the merrier and it is a good way to get extra veg into your diet too.

I make my mashed potato this way to make it syn free but if you aren’t following the slimming world plan feel free to add butter or milk or whatever you usually add to it.

Ingredients:

1lb extra lean minced beef

1/2 bag frozen mixed vegetables (I used Aunt Bessie chopped mixed vegetables)

OR onions/ carrots/celery/leeks finely chopped.

1 tbsp plain flour

3/4 pint beef stock

dash of worcestershire sauce

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

4-6 large potatoes (peeled and cut into pieces)

1/2 tub quark

1 egg yolk

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper

spray oil.
