Low-calorie cooking spray
2 onions, finely chopped
300g mushrooms, finely chopped
50g plain rolled porridge oats
900g lean beef mince (5% fat or less) or meat free alternative
5 tsp mustard powder
2 tsp each of ground mace and ground coriander
1 vegetable stock cube
800g floury potatoes, such as Maris Piper or King Edward, cut into chunks
400g swede, peeled and cut into chunks
½ savoy cabbage, roughly shredded
2 x 350g pots frozen Slimming World Roasted Onion Gravy
Steamed green beans, to serve
1- Spray a non-stick frying pan with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a medium heat. Fry the onions and mushrooms until soft and any liquid has evaporated. Stir in the oats and leave to cool.
2- Preheat your oven to 180°C/fan 160°C/gas 4. Combine the mince, 1 tbsp freshly ground black pepper, 2 tsp mustard powder, the mace, coriander and a pinch of salt. Add the oat mixture, stir well, then roll into 12 balls. Spread out on a non-stick baking tray and spray with low-calorie cooking spray. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until cooked through.
3- Meanwhile, crumble the stock cube into a large saucepan of boiling water. Add the potatoes and swede and boil for 15 minutes. With 2 minutes to go, add the cabbage. Drain, reserving a mug of the cooking water, then mash with 3 tsp mustard powder and enough cooking water to get a soft, rough mash. Heat the gravy according to the pack instructions. Serve 3 ‘haggis’ balls per person with the mash, beans and gravy.
