Peel & roughly chop sweet potato, boil until soft. Drain, adding a generous knob of butter, a dash (or two) of milk & half the grated cheese. Mash to desired consistency.

Heat oil in a pan, add minced beef & brown. Once browned, add onion, garlic, all vegetables & seasoning. As veg starts to soften, add worcester sauce, tomato paste & chutney. Let mince mixture cook until desired (the longer often the better), then transfer to an oven dish.

Evenly spread sweet potato mash on top of mince, creating a pie topping. Sprinkle remainder of cheese & bake at 200 degrees for 45 minutes (oven dependent).

Serve with peas for hearty, moreish winter staple.
