100g onion, chopped
125g carrot, peeled and grated
50g courgette, grated
1 clove garlic, crushed
170g cold mashed potatoes
80g cooked roast beef slices, chopped
2 tsp fresh chopped thyme
1 ½ tsp soy sauce
A few drops Worcestershire sauce
30g Parmesan, grated
50g kale

  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan. Add the onion and fry until soft. Add the grated carrot and courgette and fry for a further 5 minutes. Add the garlic and fry for 30 seconds, then remove from the heat and leave to cool. Once cool, mix in the cold mashed potatoes, thyme, beef, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, Parmesan cheese and 15g of breadcrumbs.
