Vegi cottage pie

half a swede
a parsnip (med sized)
one large onion
a carrot (med sized)
two sticks of celery
cabbage/mushrooms/anything left over is in the fridge
half a bag of quorn mince/tvp
two stock cubes (beef)
enough water to cover
a clove of garlic
mixed herbs (to taste
black pepper (to taste)
two spoons of boullion
potatoes for mash
extra light mayo for the mash if needed( i dont bother as it adds a syn)

dice all the veg small and add to a pan with some fry light over a low heat and allow to 'sweat'.
add the herbs and garlic (garlic burns if it goes in to early)
then add the quorn
then the water slowly, I found the quorn is really porous so you have to do this by eye)
allow to cook on a low heat while you cook the potatoes and mash them
put mix into pot cover with mash and cook for about half an hour ..

this made two that fed myself, El Hairy and Roo
If you are not on a diet you can use lean mince instead of course ... and if you are not on a diet I am jealous because I totally prefer the meat version!!
