Sweet Potato Shepherd’s Pie

Posted on

Dear Jess,

Happy Friday!

I have noticed something. As soon as it got cold, people started craving and making Shepherd’s Pie. Then the BBC Good Food email came, and what should I find in there? Their top 5 Shepherd’s Pie recipes! Not only that, but 2 of those recipes were with sweet potatoes! It was a sign. If you have a chance to make this recipe, I would highly suggest it. It is simple and delicious. Enjoy!

Sweet Potato Shepherd’s Pie
adapted from this recipe
 250 lean ground meat
2 medium onions, chopped
3 carrots, diced
2 celery sticks, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
200ml veggie stock
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp Marmite
400g lentils (canned), drained
3-4 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
2 tbsp low fat sour cream
1/2 bunch scallions, finely chopped

1. Heat a non-stick pan and cook meat. Add the onions, carrots, celery and garlic and cook for 5 minutes. Stir in the stock, Worcester sauce, Marmite, lentils and some seasoning. Simmer for 10 minutes or until saucy. Meanwhile boil or steam the sweet potato until tender. Drain then mash with sour cream and scallions.
2. Heat the panggangan to 200C/fan panggangan 180C/gas 6. Transfer the mince to an ovenproof dish. Add the mash. Cook for 30 minutes until bubbling.
3. Serve!


The only thing we weren’t sure of was the Marmite. Apparently it is a very British or Australian thing. They spread it on toast to have with their tea and other such things. I thought it would be hard to find, but was reassured by the internet that the Canadian Superstore carries it, and I believe Jason found it at Sobeys. Sections to check for it are: baking, jams and jellies, or the spice section.

I love you. I am so excited for tomorrow! By the looks of the weather it will be some messy fourwheeling for sure! Woohoo! Can’t wait.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
