Diane Pies With Parsnip Mash
Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 40 minutes
500gm lean beef mince
1 tbsp olive oil
3 shallots, finely diced
2 garlic cloves, crushed
250gm button mushrooms, thinly sliced
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 tbsp tomato sauce
1/4 cup light cooking cream
1/3 cup parsley leaves, finely chopped
800gm parsnips, peeled and cut into chunks
1/4 cup low fat milk
1 tbsp butter
2 tbsp finely grated Parmesan
250gm green beans, trimmed, steamed
1 head broccoli, cut into florets, steamed
- Remove your mince from the fridge 10-15 minutes before cooking to ensure it cooks evenly.
- Crumble the mince into the pan to ensure it browns all over, using a fork or wooden spoon to break up.
- Preheat oven to 180oC (160o fan-forced).
- Heat oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat before adding the shallots and garlic, cooking for 5 minutes until softened.
- To cook the mince, add to the pan in two batches, cooking until browned all over. Add the mushrooms and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, then stir in Worcestershire sauce, mustard, tomato sauce and cook for a further 1 to 2 minutes.
- Remove from heat before stirring in cream. Following this, bring to the boil and reduce heat to medium-low, cooking for 2 to 3 minutes or until sauce thickens and then stir through the parsley.
- For the parsnip mash, place the parsnips in a large saucepan of cold water and season with salt. Bring to the boil and leave to simmer for 15-20 minutes until completely tender. Drain the parsnips well then mash with milk and butter. Season to taste.
- Spoon the mince mixture into four lightly oiled 1 1/4 cup capacity ramekins. Top the mince with parsnip mash and sprinkle with Parmesan and lightly spray with olive oil.
- To achieve a nice golden brown, place under a medium grill for 5 minutes.
- Plate up pies and serve pies with green beans and broccoli.
