Try cottage pie the healthy way with this new recipe.

One serving contains 0.9g of your daily requirement of 1.5-3g of plant stanols.

Method

  1. Melt the Benecol® Olive Spread in a large pan. Add the onion and cook for 5 minutes until softened. Add the carrots and celery, cooking for about 2 minutes. Add the beef, breaking up any large lumps and cook for 3-4 minutes over a high heat until sealed. 
  2. Stir in the lentils, stock and herbs, cover and simmer for 30 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile cook the potatoes in a large pan of water for 10-15 minutes until soft. Drain well and mash with the Benecol® Buttery Taste Spread. Heat the oven to Gas Mark 6/200ºC/fan oven 180ºC. 
  4. Spoon the meat mixture into a 1½ litre ovenproof dish and top with the mash. Fork the surface, place on a baking tray and cook for 30 minutes until golden and bubbling. Serve with steamed green vegetables

Tips:

  1. If you are running short of time, preheat the grill to medium; ensure the meat mixture is piping hot before spooning into the dish, top with the mash and grill for 2-3 minutes until brown.
  2. Exchange the beef mince for lamb for a Shepherd's pie, but remember this will alter the nutritional information.
  3. Suitable for freezing. (Please refer to the manufacturer's handbook)
