sin on Red.

1lb extra lean minced beef
2 onions, chopped
4 carrots, chopped
2 tbsp Worcestshire sauce
2 level tbsp tomato puree
pt stock made with beef Bovril
2 lb swede
1 lb celeriac
salt and pepper and a handful of fresh chopped parsley.

Dry fry the beef in a non stick pan until browned. Pour off any fat. Add the onions and carrots and cook for 5-6 minutes until they start to soften. Add the worcestshire sauce, tomato puree and stock. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 25 mins until the stock has reduced.

Meanwhile cook the swede and celeriac and preheat your oven.

Mash the swede and celeriac together, add the parsley and seasoning and spoon over the mince mixture in an ovenproof dish. Bake for 30 mins or until hot and golden brown.

......

Alternative topping if you can't get swede, although you could use just celeriac and carrots, or potatoes on an Extra Easy day.

Cook a couple of cauliflowers. Blitz in a blender with a tub of quark or fromage frais and seasoning until smooth. Mix in 2 beaten eggs. Spoon over the mince mixture and cook as above.

that sounds do-able to me... celeriac and carrot would work (but dont stand behind me for the rest of the day!!)

This sounds lovely although can I ask what celeriac is like? I've never tasted it.

Can I say that mashed cauliflower works as a topping as well as the carrot celeriac mix. It can be a bit wet sometimes, so I let my air, or put in over for a few minutes after cooking. It doesn't really smell or taste like cauli when done like this

On another note, I like to add celery salt to the mix when mashing my celeriac
