250 g Beef mince
500 g Cauliflower cheese
1 tbsp Italian grated parmesan cheese
2 tbsp tomato purée
100 g Frozen veg
1 pinch salt
3 tbsp Gravy granules
500 ml water (hot)
½ onion
1 pinch garlic powder
1 pinch parsley

Utensils

  • pot
  • colander
  • 2 cooking spoons
  • microwave-safe bowl
  • microwave
  • Cling film
  • heatproof bowl
  • frying pan
  • wooden spoon
  • ovenproof pot
  • Step 1/7

    • 100 g Frozen veg
    • pot
    • colander

    First step is the preparation. The frozen veg needs to be boiled in water for 5 minutes and later drained. You can add a pinch of salt in the water before putting in the veg. I have used a mix of carrots, peas and green beans.

  • Step 2/7

    Prepare the cauliflower cheese. If you’re using a frozen one - microwave for 5 minutes in total in a microwaveable bowl which is covered by cling film. Stir half way through and add some seasoning including salt and pepper and some of the Italian grated cheese (for a more cheesy experience). The cauliflower may not seem totally thaw however we are still putting it in the oven afterwards so it is fine. Fold the cauliflower in the bowl using a spoon and cut in smaller pieces.

    If you are using fresh cauliflower you can again use the folding technique until the cheese you are using have melted over. Now we can prepare the sauce which later will be mixed in with the mince and veg. Boil 500ml of water and mix in the gravy granules and 2tbsps of tomato purée. And trust me this sauce is amazing for mince!

    Brown half an onion (thinly chopped) and 250g of beef steak mince. Add the previously boiled vegetables and pour in the sauce. Bring to boil and simmer on low heat for 10 minutes till the sauce mixes in with other ingredients and thickens. You can season this with garlic powder as you fancy.

  • Step 6/7

    Follow with the cauliflower cheese. Sprinkle the Italian grated cheese (I have used a packet one) all over and some dried parsley. You can also use fresh parsley. The oven needed to be previously heated up to 180C in an electric oven - put the dish in the centre of the top rack and cook for another 25 minutes or until the cheese and cauliflower are melted and crispy looking.
