This recipe has been passed down from my mum. I love it on a cold winter's evening. Even more so when my mum visits and brings it with her ready made for that evening! Babies can eat this meal from six-months-old but it is tricky as the food isn't easy to hold so this is probably one best attempted to be eaten with a spoon which babies tend to start to handle at around 10 months old...so get ready for the aftermath!
Prep time: 30 mins, cooking time: 1 hour
Feeds: 4 adult servings, several baby servings so plenty to go in the freezer
- 300g lean Mince lamb
- 450g potatoes
- 1 small-medium sized onions
- 1 carrots
- 1 sticks of celery
- 1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
- 1 x 400g Tin of tomatoes
- 1 tbsp of oats (optional, this makes it go further)
- 1 Bay leaf, sprinkling of thyme, basil and pepper to taste.
- 1tbsp Tomato purée
- 200ml Vegetable stock (low salt or homemade)
- 50g grated cheese
- Chop vegetables into chunks then blast the food processor
- Heat oil in a large pan, cook veg on low along with the finely chopped garlic
- Remove veg and add meat, cook on low, then once brown, add the veg back in
- Stir in tomato puree, add in herbs, 1 cup of milk and the tin of tomatoes and vegetable stock
- Simmer for 30 mins
- Transfer to an ovenproof dish, pile on the mash potato, sprinkle grated cheese over the top and bake for 25 mins.
Weaning: Babies can eat this meal from six-months-old. But I did wait until about 10-months-old so my baby could attempt to eat it with a spoon.
