Ingredients

  • Cauliflower Mash

  • Beef + Onion Filling

Directions

Steps

1
Done

Preheat the oven to 220c and place the garlic cloves on a piece of foil and wrap like a little parcel. Place the garlic in the oven and roast for 20 minutes, or until cloves are soft. Remove from the oven and set aside. 

2
Done

Place the cauliflower florets in medium sized pot with just enough water to cover and season with a teaspoon of salt. Bring the water to the boil and then turning down the heat until the water is rapidly simmering, cook the cauliflower for 12-15 minutes or until very tender. 

3
Done

Drain the cooked cauliflower from the water, and keep warm in the pot with a lid on it.

4
Done

Cook the mince by heating a large frying pan on medium to high heat with a teaspoon of tamari. Quickly add the onions and raw garlic and stir fry for 2-3 minutes. Add the mince and using a wooden spoon, break up the beef into small pieces. Season well with salt and pepper.

5
Done

Allow the mince to cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently and then add the coriander powders along with the chopped rosemary. Stir in well.

6
Done

Stir the remaining 3 tablespoons of tamari into the water and add the liquid to mince. At this stage it may look like you are making mince soup, but don’t be concerned! As the liquid reduces down it creates a wonderfully tasty gravy which will be the base of our pie.

7
Done

Cook the liquid down for about 10 minutes or until it has formed a thick gravy. Taste for flavour, adding more salt and pepper to taste. Turn off the pan, and keep warm.

8
Done

Finish off the cauliflower mash by placing the cooked florets into a small powerful blender along with the flesh squeezed from the roasted garlic cloves. Season with salt and pepper and add the rosemary leaves along with the nutmeg and cumin. Blend till very smooth.

9
Done

Place the warm mince in the bade of a small pie dish or bowl and top with the wonderfully smooth cauliflower mash. Eat whilst warm!
