A classic Shepherd's Pie with Roast Sweet Potato for the family to enjoy from Kate Flower.
Preheat the oven to 200°C.
Place sweet Potato on a tray and place in the oven for about 30 minutes or until fork tender to the center. Remove and set aside to cool.
Lower oven temperature to 180°C. Meanwhile heat a large pan to high heat, add oil, onion, carrot, red capsicum, and celery and cook stirring for around 5 minutes or until the vegetables are beginning to caramelise. Add the garlic, rosemary and bay leaves and cook, stirring for 1 minute. Add tomato paste, cauliflower rice, vinegar and stir through. Continue to cook stirring for another few minutes before adding stock, water, lentils and beans.
Bring the pan to a simmer and allow the liquid to evaporate until there is around a cup left. Scatter the top with semolina and stir through to thicken, season to taste then turn off the heat. Pour the filling into your pie dish and set aside.
To make the top, peel the sweet potato and place the flesh in a bowl. Add oil, salt and mash roughly with a fork. Place the topping on your pie filling and gently manipulate the sweet potato to evenly cover the filling. Use a spoon to create an organic pattern on top then sprinkle the remaining ingredients across the top and place the pie back in the oven. Cook for around 25 minutes, or until the top is starting to brown at the tips and the filling is bubbling. Serve immediately.
