SW recipe: Chunky shepherd’s pie

Serves 4
❆ (see Cook’s note)
Ready in about 3 hours 30 minutes

Syns per serving: FREE


1 onion, finely chopped

2 celery sticks, finely chopped

2 carrots, finely chopped

3 garlic cloves, finely chopped

400g lean lamb leg, visible fat removed, cut into chunks

2 tbsp tomato purée

200g chestnut mushrooms, roughly chopped

400g can chopped tomatoes

600ml lamb stock

1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

400g celeriac, peeled and roughly chopped

400g can butter beans, drained and rinsed

3 large egg yolks, lightly beaten

5 tbsp fat-free natural fromage frais

Handful fresh flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped

1 green cabbage, shredded


1 Place a large, deep, non-stick frying pan or saucepan over a high heat. Add the onion, celery, carrots, garlic, lamb, tomato purée, mushrooms, tomatoes, stock and Worcestershire sauce, season and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 2-3 hours, stirring occasionally, until the lamb is tender, and the sauce has reduced and started to look glossy.

2 Meanwhile, boil the celeriac for 15-20 minutes until softened, adding the butter beans for the final 5 minutes. Drain, leave to steam-dry in the colander for 2-3 minutes, then mash until smooth. In a large bowl, mix the egg yolks and fromage frais, then stir through the celeriac mash with the parsley until well combined. Season to taste and set aside.

3 Preheat your oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6. Transfer the lamb mixture to a medium baking dish. Top with the celeriac mash, and spread with the back of a spoon to create an even layer and cover the filling. Bake for 30 minutes, or until the mash is golden and the sauce is bubbling.

4 Meanwhile, boil or steam the cabbage for 4-5 minutes until tender, then drain. Remove the pie from the oven and leave to stand for 5 minutes before serving with the cabbage.

If you’re making this dish to freeze, steam the celeriac for 25-30 minutes rather than boiling it, adding the beans for the final 10 minutes. When baking from frozen, cook the pie for an extra 15-20 minutes and cover with foil if the top starts to burn
