Time for a post about a great easy to make, delicious family meal!
Take some vegetarian mince, some potatoes, carrots, onion, a few other veggies, milk, salt, pepper and some Bisto Vegetable Gravy granules, what have you got? Well, in this case Shepherds ‘lost-his-sheep’ Pie!
How do you do it?
Get your potatoes boiling ready for the top later. Put your vegetarian mince in a pan with all of the veggies (chopped), measure in 3/4 pint of boiling water and then simmer for 15 minutes. Preheat the oven at 200˚c/Fan 180c/Gas Mark 6. Drain the potatoes and mash them with the milk and season with pepper.
Now the important bit, sprinkle 5 teaspoons of BIsto Gravy Granules into the mince mix stirring until thickened. Transfer into a baking dish, top with the mash and then bake for 20-25 minutes.
It really is a simple recipe, easy to follow and definitely easy to make and it was fairly quick too! But, I guess the real judging is in the tasting. Did we like it? I can safely say it was enjoyed by all, Monkey and Mouse cleared their plates and enjoyed every little bit of it. Daddy loves how simple it is to make and has added it to his repertoire and me, well you know how much I love a quick, easy and tasty meal that all four of us like!
I am really impressed that you can use Gravy Granules for ‘proper’ dinners, there are other recipes that we will definitely be trying, I can see Daddy looking towards the mid-week roast (think he will be cooking that one).
The great thing is that even in the shepherds pie you get the great Bisto flavour, it is smooth and delicious and well …. ‘aah…..Bisto!’
