Shepherd's Pie is a traditional, hearty Irish meal, but we want to take it to a whole new level.

With a topping made from sweet potato, coconut milk & parmesan, this is a Shepherd's Pie like no other.

Here's how to make this delicious mid-week meal using the Knorr Meal Maker.


Step 1

Firstly start with the sweet potato, placing it in a boiling pot until it softens. Normally takes 10-15mins in salted water. Once cooked drain off all the water and allow to steam. Add in the coconut milk and season with sea salt and mash until smooth.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 190°C/375°F/Gas Mark 5.

Step 3

Stir fry the onion in the oil, add the garlic and carrots and fry until soft, add the minced meat and continue to fry until brown.

Step 4

Mix the contents of the Meal Maker pack with the water and add to pan, bring to the boil, then simmer covered for 10 minutes.

Step 5

Stir in the sriracha, pour into an ovenproof dish. Cover with the mashed sweet potato. Now grate the parmesan cheese over the dish and cook in the oven for 25-30 minutes.

Quick, easy and oh-so-filling.
