It’s not quite Winter I know, but the temperature is dropping faster than a bad facelift! This winter warmer is really delicious and a great way to use up any leftover veggies in the fridge!
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 brown onions, sliced
1 tablespoon plain flour
2 large carrots(about 300g) , cut into small batons
150g pumpkin, chopped coarsely
½ cauliflower, broken into small florets
4 garlic cloves, finely sliced
1 rosemary sprig, leaves finely chopped
400g can chopped tomatoes
1 2/3 cups (200g) frozen peas
900g potatoes, chopped
¾ cup (180ml) milk
- Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a pan on medium. Cook onion for 6-8 minutes until soft. Add flour and cook for 2 minutes. Add the carrots, cauliflower, garlic and rosemary, and cook for 5 minutes, stirring regularly, until vegetables begin to soften.
- Add tomatoes and 1 can of water. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Uncover and cook for 10-15 minutes, until the sauce has thickened and the vegetables are tender. Season. Stir in the peas and cook for 1 minute, until peas are tender,
- Meanwhile, cook potato in a large saucepan of salted boiling water for 15-20 minutes, until tender. Drain. Return to pan and mash well. Add milk and remaining oil and mash until smooth. (Or make the mash in the Thermomix if you have one!)
- Preheat grill on high. Spoon the hot vegetable mix into a medium ovenproof dish, top with the mash and drag a fork lightly over the surface. Place under the grill for a few minutes until top is crisp and golden.
