Serves 4


  • 500g floury potatoes, such as Maris Piper or King Edward, chopped
  • 500g swede, peeled and chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 carrots, diced

  3. Strain the stock into a jug (you only need 200ml) then whisk in the quark, mustard powder, parsley and some freshly ground black pepper.
  4. Roughly chop or shred the chicken, then divide the chicken and veg between 4 deep individual pie dishes (or 1 large ovenproof dish), discarding the thyme.
  5. Stir the quark mixture into each dish, spoon over the mash and flatten with a fork. Spray with low-calorie cooking spray and bake at 220°C/fan 200°C/gas 7 for 25-30 minutes. Serve hot, with Speed veg.
