  • 1 pack Meatless Farm Plant-Based Mince
  • 8 small-medium potatoes
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 120ml oat milk
  • 3 carrots, diced
  • 1 tin green peas
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 2 spring onions, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 tin chopped tomatoes
  • 300ml vegetable stock
  • 1 tsp all-purpose seasoning
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp jerk marinade
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp allspice


  1. Add your potatoes to a pan of salted boiling water for 30mins until soft.
  2. While the potatoes are cooking, add your red onion, spring onion and garlic to a pan with a dash of oil and sauté until soft.
  3. Add in the Meatless Farm Plant-Based Mince and leave to cook for 2 mins, before adding in the seasoning, paprika and jerk marinade. Cook for another minute and then throw in your basil, thyme and allspice. Give everything a good mix together.
  4. Next, add the diced carrots, green peas, chopped tomatoes and the vegetable stock. Give the pan a good stir and leave to simmer and reduce for around 10-15 mins.
  5. When your potatoes are soft, drain and then place them in a large bowl. Add the butter, black pepper, salt and oat milk. Mash until fluffy and smooth.
  6. Once that is done and the mince has cooked you can begin to build your cottage pie.
  7. Firstly, spoon the mince into the bottom of the casserole dish and spread evenly, followed by the mashed potato.
  8. Using a fork, gently make lines in the potato – the small peaks will crisp up nicely!
  9. Then place in the oven on medium to high heat for 15-20 mins until golden brown.
